Polish State Railroads In Summer 1939

In the summer of 1939, the map of both Europe and Poland looked very different from today. Obviously, the railway network of interwar Poland was also different from the present one, and also slightly different from the German, Austrian and Russian networks the Second Polish Republic had partially taken over after 1918. These important junctions were on the Polish territory in summer of 1939:

- Lwów (Lviv), Tarnopol (Ternopil), Stanisławów (Ivano-Frankivsk), Stryj (Stryy), Kowel (Kovel), Chodorow (Khodoriv), Kołomyja (Kolomyya) and Sarny (Sarny) - all now in Ukraine,

- Łuniniec (Luninyets), Baranowicze (Baranavichy), Brześć nad Bugiem (Brest), Lida (Lida), Wołkowysk (Vawkavysk) and Mołodeczno (Maladzyechna)- all now in Belarus,

- Wilno (Vilnius), Landwarow (Lentvaris) - now in Lithuania,

- Cieszyn Zachodni (Český Těšín), Bogumin (Bohumín) - now in the Czech Republic.

On the other hand, several junctions of today's Poland belonged in 1939 to Germany or the Free City of Danzig. Among them were such hubs as: Breslau (Wrocław), Stettin (Szczecin), Oppeln (Opole), Allenstein (Olsztyn), Liegnitz (Legnica), Köslin (Koszalin), Schneidemühl (Piła), Neustettin (Szczecinek), Lyck (Ełk).

Famous quotes containing the words railroads, summer, polish and/or state:

    Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end, an end which it was already but too easy to arrive at; as railroads lead to Boston or New York.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Her body is a honey bowl
    Whose waiting honey is deep and hot.
    Her body is like summer earth,
    Receptive, soft, and absolute . . .
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    You will have to polish up the stars
    with Bab-o and find a new God
    as the earth empties out
    into the gnarled hands of the old redeemer.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I do not think that there is any doubt about where I stand in respect to boycotts. If there is, I will just state what I think about them. They are illegal and ought to be suppressed. I would never countenance that which recognizes their legality.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
