Ok, sometimes you pass a location that may not completely deserve a report on it's own, but well, since you're there, you decide to quickly take some snaps. Located only a few hundred meters from "The Chapel" in a tiny village with only 400 people we found this place by accident. A bit of history; In 1744 a wooden church was build for the evangelic community of Alt Jäschwitz. For some reason, in 1842 the wooden church was replaced by a new concrete church and was converted into a Lutheran church. They finished building the new church in 1844. In 1945, after the war, the church was abandoned simply because the Polish people that moved back into this area were catholic and didn't want to pray in a German church. Nowadays it's in a state beyond repair, but some tiny details inside still give you the impression that it once must have been a nice place. It's on the list of monuments in Poland, but it's unlikely it will ever get restored to it's former glory. Below two pictures taken in 1917 & 1919, showing the church and it's former beauty; Ok, definitely not my best set of images, but well, here we go; 1# 2# 3# 4# 5# 6# 7# 8# 9# 10# 11# 12# 13# 14# Thanks for watching!
