This is second of few posts referring to story of Eliasz Klimowicz, mysterious self-proclaimed prophet that lived in Podlasie in 1930s. "The story of Wierszalin begins a few years before the First World War with a peasant named Eliasz (or Elijah) Klimowicz. He lived in a village called Grybowszczyzna Stara, located near what is now the Polish-Belarussian border. It was far from the main roads. The soils in the area were sandy and the farms poor. Włodzimierz Pawluczuk, the Polish journalist who chronicled the rise and fall of Klimowicz’s movement, titled his story “a report from the end of the world.”" This series of pics depict the ruins of the temple Klimowicz tried to raise in the forest just oposite the house he lived and I showed in my previous post. Actually the ruins of the walls are not the real one. They were built by Lasy Panstwowe on the foundation of what was left by the temple. More to come... . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wierszalin #prophet #orthodox #orthodoxchristian #mystery #house #oldhouse #headquarter #podlasie #poland #polska #mystery #legend #legendary #believer #forest #las #centeroftheworld #instamystery #instastory #church #history #instagood #instapic #travelphotograph #traveleurope #travelgram #photooftheday #phototour #ruins #temple

Apologies for my absence. Life got in the way! Day 20: Something old. This is an Egypt Medal. As you can see from the inscription around the edge it was awarded to C. Barrell, a trumpeter in the 20th Hussars. He was my great-great-grandmother’s brother. Born Charles Albert Formhals in 1859 in the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, he was the son of a soldier in the British-German Legion, the members of which ended up being married off to English girls and shipped to what was then, British Kaffraria; the Crimean War for which they’d been intending to serve, now over. . Charles’ mother changed their name to the less German-sounding surname of her first husband, Barrell, after returning to England around late 1860 or early 1861. Charles’ father presumably died although this is unconfirmed. . The majority of Charles’ army service would have been spent in the UK and Ireland; however, in 1884 some of the 20th Hussars volunteered to form part of the Light Camel Regiment raised for service in Egypt against the forces of the Mahdi in the Nile Campaign. Two squadrons left Portsmouth in February 1885 to take part in the Suakin Expedition, landing at Suakin in March. Here they were occupied in patrol work and escorting convoys and fought a number of small actions as well as taking part in the battles of Hasheen on 20 March and Tofrek, two days later. One squadron distinguished itself by saving many of the baggage animals and their drivers, who had been stampeded and were in danger of being wiped out by the Dervishes. The roll for Suakin states that Charles was not present on the expedition as he was stationed at the depot. This means he would not have been eligible for the Suakin clasp on the Egypt medal. . This medal has sadly been damaged by being turned into a brooch but it’s still one of the oldest things I have in my possession. . #familyhistory #genealogy #myfamily #history #ancestors #ancestry #archive #familytree #familyhistorian #familyarchive #familyarchives #genealogyuk #genealogyphotoaday #gpad_feature #egyptmedal #warmedal #20thhussars

Have you ever just watched a Squirrel in your yard?  Or, how about while you were walking?  They are one of the most mesmerizing creatures to watch. I came across this particular squirrel while kayaking on the water and while observing this creature, I couldn’t help to admire the squirrel. The squirrel’s ingenuity and desire to achieve its goal for gathering food had me thinking just how industrious this little creature is. It takes a lot of audacity to face adversity and if you observe closely, the squirrel is a creature with which we humans have a lot in common.  Keep reading… Among hundreds of folktales a squirrel is considered a caretaker or a messenger to show us we need to enjoy life. Think about this for a second; the squirrel is constantly in motion running, climbing, jumping, gathering food and creating a home for itself or family. Not too dissimilar to that of humans. We are always in motion working, providing, and trying to create that home we all desperately want to provide for our families. What can the squirrel teach us? One could say that the squirrel is one of practicality and is always focused on a goal daily. Think about this; the squirrel doesn’t see dead ends or give up trying to reach its desired outcome as most humans do in difficult situations. If it has to jump from a tree to reach another branch to achieve its goal the squirrel will do so without hesitation. Think about that for a second. When you feel that you have reached a certain roadblock in your life, work, marriage, business, friendship, and the list goes on, are you willing to try to improve your situation? The squirrel, if anything, shows its readiness to attempt different methods to reach its goals. That type of perseverance is the key to any successful outcome in a situation where you might be ready to give up and quit. Don’t Quit! The squirrel doesn’t. #camera #photography #positive #picture #landscapes #pictures #read #waterways #stories #photograph #water #wildlife #kayaking #boatlife #boating #intracoastalwaterway #photographs #nature #nationalgeographic #history #present #learn

The witch hunt #1 - Part of our wise women’s course is history and today I would like to share with you some facts about the witch hunt. Most people accused of witchcraft had nothing to do with magic or cunning practices. On the contrary, they were often asked to undo the evil spells of supposed witches and they prevented people with remedies and countermeasures against witchcraft. In a later stage this changed; cunning folk had to be careful too. During the witch hunts an estimated 45.000 people were executed in Europe. Eighty percent of them were women, cause women were four times more likely to be accused of witchcraft than men. That said in some areas like Estonia and Iceland men were more likely to be prosecuted. In continental Europe, in the 15th century, the witch hunt reached a peak. Witches had already been prosecuted for at least a hundred years but a Catholic bull, written by pope Innocentius VIII in 1484 made things worse, cause it granted permission to prosecute witches in Northern Germany. Some claim this bull was written by the pope in response to a request of Heinrich Kramer, a German Dominician inquisitor. However, not everyone agrees on this. It’s also said Kramer just used the papal bull to promote the horrific book he published 1487. This title of this book was ‘Malleus Maleficarum’, the hammer against witches. More about this book later. Still, the Malleus Maleficarum was not the main cause of the mass hysteria that followed and not everywhere in Europe the events following unfolded in exactly the same way. Clear is that social changes and debates on the nature of women had a devastating effect. Part two of this story will follow later.♠ . . . . . . . . . . #witchhunt #theburningtimes #witchhunter #witchtrials #malleusmaleficarum #wisewomen #cunningmen #cunningfolk #hammerofwitches #history #medievalbelieves

🇵🇱„Krótki zimowy dzień minął w oczekiwaniu na anioła śmierci. Nikt nie przypuszczał, że na dworze rozpętało się już piekło. Więcej niż trzy czwarte mieszkańców wypędzono na ulicę, obstawioną kordonem SS i żandarmerii [...] Tak o wydarzeniach, które rozpoczęły się w nocy z 20 na 21 lutego 1941 roku pisał Symcha Guterman w swoich „Kartkach z pożogi”. Przed nami 78 rocznica likwidacji płockiego getta. Do obozu w Działdowie deportowano tego dnia około 4000 osób. „Pozostali wrócili ulicą do domu, po wielogodzinnym, wypełnionym cierpieniem czekaniu. Wezwano ich następnego dnia”. 1 marca 1941 roku miało miejsce ostatnie wysiedlenie. Do obozu w Działdowie deportowano wtedy około 6000 płockich Żydów. Symcha Guterman w 1941 roku został wywieziony do Starachowic, skąd uciekł do Warszawy. Należał do Żydowskiej Organizacji Bojowej. Został rozstrzelany w walce o odbicie Pawiaka w pierwszych dniach sierpnia 1944 roku. Fotografia: Archiwum Państwowe w Płocku, Akta miasta Płocka, sygn. 22950. 🇬🇧”A short winter day passed in anticipation of the angel of death. Nobody thought that hell had already broken out. More than 3/4 of the residents were driven to the street, surrounded by a cordon of the SS and gendarmerie [...]” The events that began on the night of February 20, 1941 were described by Symcha Guterman in his "Leaves from fire". The 78th anniversary of the liquidation of the Płock ghetto is ahead of us. About 4,000 people were deported to the camp in Działdowo on that day. "The others returned home along the street after long hours of waiting and suffering. They were summoned the next day." On March 1, 1941, the last deportation took place. 6000 Płock Jews were then deported to the camp in Dzialdowo. Symcha Guterman in 1941 was deported to Starachowice, from where he escaped to Warsaw. He belonged to the Jewish Combat Organization. He was shot in the battle for the Pawiak in the first days of August 1944.

"The Mother Armenia Statue Symbolises Peace Through Strength. It Can Remind Viewers of Some of the Prominent Female Figures In Armenian History, Such as SOSE MAYRIG and Others, Who Took Up Arms To Help Their Husbands In Their Clashes With Turkish Troops and Kurdish Irregulars. It Also Recalls the Important Status and Value Attributed To the Older Female Members of an ARMENIAN FAMILY. Its Location On a Hill Overlooking Yerevan Makes It Look Like a Guardian of the Armenian Capital. Every Year On 9 May, Thousands of Armenians Visit the Statue of #motherarmenia and Lay Flowers To Commemorate the Armenian Martyrs of the Second World War. The Pedestal Hosts the Mother Armenia Military Museum of the Ministry of Defense. When First Built it Housed a Military Museum Dedicated To World War II. Today, a Large Proportion of the Exhibition Space Is Devoted To the Nagorno-Karabakh War of 1988–1994. On Display Are the Personal Belongings, Weapons, and Documents of Participants, and the Walls Are Decorated With Their Portraits. Among Other Historical Artifacts, There Is a Map On Which Armenian Forces Worked Out Their Campaign For the Capture of Shushi." P.S.
