Postcards from Adam Czmuchowski

As I mentioned in my last post, Adam Czmuchowski sent me a lovely book and numerous postcards of the local area where he works as a historian.  It is a beautiful collection of photos he has taken and although I won't post everyone of them, here are quite a few.  I wish I could translate the Polish descriptions on the backs of each, however, my Polish  translation would be a product of Google translate,  which can be incorrect...

So here are some wonderful views of the little villages just outside of Breslau, known in German as Treschin or Polish Trestno and Klein Tschansch or the Polish name of Ksieze Male.

In the latter, was where my mother and her sister spent much time being as their single mother worked and they would reside at the orphanage in the Catholic complex in Klein Tschansch during the weekdays.  As my mom somewhat recalled they came home weekends.  

This is the church which celebrated 850 years from 1149-1999.  
Below is a view of the same church from a different side.

A beautiful area view.
