An important photo essay capturing the architecture of Warsaw prior to the destruction wrought by WWII when most of the buildings depicted in this folder were destroyed. By 1945, 85% of the buildings in the city were razed, including almost 1000 historical buildings, 25 churches, the National Library, the University and most of the monuments. The views in this folder offer a fantastic glimpse back in time, before the city was decimated, and allow us to remember the beauty of pre-war Warsaw. Each view is captioned in English, German, Russian, French and Polish.
