Product description

Fascinating collection of vintage photographs documented varied aspects of German life in Silesia before WWII, thematically arranged under such headings as childhood and school, artisans and craft workers, sport and games, and many more. Annotations in German.

Dieser umfassende Fotoband über das Leben in Schlesien vor der Vertreibung ist ein Bild- und Textdokument besonderer Art. Aus vielen tausend Bildern wurden die besten ausgewählt, um die vertraute Szenerie des schlesischen Menschen in seiner Heimat noch einmal vor unserem Auge lebendig werden zu lassen. Sie zeigen Vereins- und Familienleben, dörfliche Feste, Kirchen, Pfarrer und Pastoren, kleine Bauernhöfe und große Güter - Bilder, die persönlichen Wert und eine hohe Aussagekraft besitzen. Ergänzt von Anekdoten und Geschichten, die der Autor Wolfgang Schwarz aus seinem eigenen schlesischen Erfahrungsschatz zu schöpfen wusste und dem Buch das unverwechselbar Schlesische verleihen. Wer dieses Buch liest, wird eintauchen in die damalige Zeit und die alte Heimat.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
