Seeking History's Individual Cities: Vilnius and Krakow (Lithuania and Poland)
Author: David Hammons
Format: Kindle Edition
From Moscow to Istanbul in bars and museums the whole way through, I trekked the paths of history on a $20 pair of shoes. In the span of 36 days I visited 10 different countries questing with a sensational hunger for places of historical note so that I might understand and experience all that could be learned in sites both well-traveled and near forgotten. Blisters and hangovers and even angry Greek communists couldn’t stop me, and I’d love to share with you my fascinating experiences and thoughts on the fall of the three empires I saw.
Every night during my journey I would write a journal of my experiences and publish them online. Family and friends read along and became drawn in to the presence of the scenes and wonders. Utilizing this method, I have assembled my journals for your enjoyment to experience along with me as if we were sitting down and sharing my tale the day it happened. Come along! Together we shall seek history and all its life-affirming tales.
In this volume two, we explore the the first Soviet Republic to declare its independence from the Soviet Union and the nation most horribly oppressed by nazism and communism. From a KGB killing house to the gas chambers at Auschwitch, this enlightening exploration of tragedy reveals the deepest evils and triumphs man has ever known.
