acknowledgement of Poland on the 80th anniversary of Germany’s invasion. I was only eight months old at the time so my memory of the event is a little shaky. Still, I have taken advantage of the time since to read about the incident in a history book. I read.
There are, however, many who well remember the heroic efforts of those Polish Lancers, their stanchions held high with Polish Flags fluttering as they galloped proudly toward the oncoming ranks of those dirty, smelly German tanks rolling across their Polish plains at breakneck speed. Somewhere there must be a stunning oil painting of this historic moment hanging in a Polish museum.
