Photo Comment

This Fresco-D is on display at the Muzeum Orła Białego, named after members of the local WWII, resistance group Orzel Bialy (White Eagle), many of whom were captured, shot and buried in two mass graves in nearby forests. The museum has relatively few planes, rather a large collection of Russian, Polish and German WWII and post-war tanks and military equipment. The museum also collects and preserves documents and historical materials relating to the military history of the city and the region.
