Warsaw, Freta Street

The church in the distance is the Church of the Holy Spirit.  During World War II the church was almost totally destroyed by the Germans.

Just on the left side of the postcard, where the pedestrians are on the sidewalk, is the birthplace and museum of Marie Curie.  The tall structure on the left side of the street just past the lamppost is Saint Hyacinth's Church.  During the Warsaw Uprising Saint Hyacinth's was used as a field hospital, making it a heavy target of German bombings.  Over 1,000 insurgents and civilians were killed there.
