Śląska Panna Olimpia, lat 20. Silesian Maiden Olympia, age 20. Poland's natural geographical boundaries are based on mountains in the south, the line of the River Odra and its last left-bank tributary River Nysa Luzycka in the west, the Baltic Sea in the north, and the line of the San - Bug - Narew - Czarna Hancza Rivers in the east.
Soviet tanks T-34 welcome visitors entering Wroclaw from the south by the longest European route E40, A4 autostrada. They commemorate the mortal clash of the evils which brought the Poles back to our Silesian home. Circa 800 officers of the Red Army fallen during the siege of Festung Breslau (Fortress Breslau) are burried in the Soviet Military Officers Cemetery in Wroclaw. The Soviet Army stationed in Poland from the end of Second World War in 1945 until 1993. The liberation from the German occupation did not bring freedom to Poland. Brought on Soviet bayonets, slavery was brutally introduced and maintained by the Polish Communists. Foreign influences shifted from Moscow to Berlin were rejected by the Poles in the 2015 presidential and parliamentary elections, probably the first fair ones after the German - Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939.
The Polish Restoration of Wroclaw, whole Silesia, and all the Western and Northern Territories after centuries regained, has been achieved efficiently, without unnecessary delay, and according to the post-war standards. By no means degermanization and repolonization of historic Polish lands can be compared with German atrocities and war crimes against the Polish nation. Nowadays, Wroclaw is as important city of Poland and all Europe as it was more than one thousand years ago.
