Microcosm A Portrait of a Central European City PDF/EPUB

Central Europe has always been richly endowed with a variety of migrants and settlers and repeatedly been the scene of nomadic invasions mixed settlements and military conquests As a result the area has witnessed a profusion of languages cultures religions and nationalitiesThe history of Silesia's main city can be seen as a fascinating tale in its own right but it is than that It embodies all the experiences that have made Central Europe what it is the rich mixture of nationalities and cultures the German settlement and the reflux of the Slavs a Jewish presence of exceptional distinction a turbulent succession of Imperial rules and the shattering exposure to both Nazis and Stalinists In short it is a Central European microcosmThe third largest German city of the mid nineteenth century Breslau's population reached one million in 1945 before the bitter German defence of the city against the Soviets wrought almost total destruction Transferred to Poland after the war Breslau has risen from ruins and is again a thriving economic and cultural centre of the region
