from the back of the post card included in this kit: "hi to all from Warsaw Poland. this city was 84% destroyed in 1939. now it has wide streets; restored to a city of over a million. surely a miracle and proof of the strength of human will when necessary."
I made this kit in honor of our presidents visit to Poland this week! I have a friend who's home country is Poland that once said to me, she didn't think the world cared about her country. as I looked for images and information about Poland for this kit I felt that many of the history books I have really didn't care enough to even include this wonderful country in their chapters and it made me feel very sad. I for one really do care about the people there and stand behind them in their brave fight to keep their country a christian nation.
special information about this kit: the last time I had a Poland kit in my shop was 2013. this is only the third kit I have made about this country. I do not know when or if I can make another one. the others were a Christmas kit and just some illustrations from one book so this is the first one like this! there are 4 information pieces and one image that did not make into the photos. the stamp sheet is from my husbands collection from the 1960's. the animal images without descriptions have their name written on the back in pencil. I researched each one to be sure they did actually reside in Poland. some images do have handling wear and a few a little soil all of which adds to the vintage experience. Package size is 10.5 x 8 inches approx.
