Lublin: A HistoryChristopher Garbowski
Dział: historia regionalna
The city of Lublin abounds in sites of historical significance. Among them, the magnificent Byzantine murals from the fifteenth century in the Gothic chapel at Lublin Castle bear eloquent witness to the high points of the city's rich history, while the Nazi concentration camp at Majdanek, once outside the city limits, now within them, is a poignant witness to its greatest tragedy. But despite its undoubted importance, what is visible from the past is nonetheless only a part if the tale. This book presents o concise but thorough history of the city and its community, within the broader Polish context, from the early Middle Ages to the present, based on the most up to date historical knowledge and with a special focus on the human dimension of the story.
