Polish insurgents Bożena Grabowska -1925/2013- (codename: “Magda”) and Cpl. Cadet Antoni Tuleja -1919/2002- (codename: “Niedźwiedź”), both of “Koszta” Company of the Armia Krajowa (Home Army) resistance movement pose for a photograph during the Warsaw Uprising.
Great photographs as usual, @Louis
The destruction and hardship captured in some of these pictures beggars belief but the human kindness and comradeship amongst all this can be seen too. Hard times, I feel blessed.
