Battle of Wizna (sometimes referred to as the Polish Thermopylae) was fought between September 7 and September 10, 1939, between the forces of Poland and Germany during the initial stages of Invasion of Poland.

Battle of Wizna is a theme for one of the Sabaton songs in "The Art of War" album, entitled "40:1", for an estimated ratio of forces on both sides of battle. The song praises the bravery and heroism of the Polish army : ("So come, bring on all that you've got/Come hell, come high water, Never stop (Unless you are 40 to 1) Your lives will soon be undone").

Płaszów - a Nazi German concentration camp, Cracow, Poland

October 30th, 2008 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Płaszów was a Nazi German concentration camp in the southern suburb of Kraków, founded by the Nazis in Płaszów soon after the German invasion of Poland and the creation of the General Government. The construction of the camp, originally intended as a forced labour camp, began in summer 1940. Its first prisoners were Poles. In 1941 the camp was extended and subsequently became a concentration camp with deportations of the Jews from the Kraków Ghetto beginning October 28, 1942. Commanding the camp was Amon Göth, an SS commandant from Vienna who was known for being uncommonly sadistic in his treatment of prisoners. On 13 March 1943, Göth personally oversaw the liquidation of the Kraków Ghetto, forcing its Jewish inhabitants deemed capable of work into the camp. Those deemed unfit for work were killed. Under him were his staff of SS men and a few SS women, including Gertrud Heise, Luise Danz, Alice Orlowski and Anna Gerwing.
