Day 12: Light

I had been traveling around Poland for three weeks, learning about this country’s history during World War II. Needless to say, there were many depressing moments as I saw museum displays and read about the horrific war years where so many people either perished or barely survived.

When I visited Wroclaw, Poland I had not realized I would have some lighter moments. I discovered I enjoyed looking for the “gnomes” around the city. There are hundreds of them! The purpose of the gnomes was to bring down Poland’s oppressive regime in the eighties. It was a good break from the WWII info.

Weeks of travel learning about Polish WWII history was an emotional time, but I must admit the lighter fun in seeing the gnomes helped balance me! Here is just one of the many gnomes I saw. Isn’t it cute? Loved this city!
