Andrew Pearson:
this beautiful square was left as a pile of smoking rubble by the Nazis. Those fuckers went into every house that you can see in the picture with flame-throwers. In 1945 in Warsaw there was barely one stone standing on another. You are not doubt already well aware of this. If you go into the Warsaw museum (near the place in the picture, standard Eastern-european grumpy little old ladies guarding every room) you will find a picture of this place in ruins. The museum is a bit harrowing in places.
