"Beauty, tradition, patriotism, history, and vigor. These words seem to best describe the city emerging from the pages of ”Warsaw, the Unvanquished”. We see its unshaken quality not through the accounts of its inhabitants, but through the eyes of two Cracow natives - the photographer Adam Bujak, and the publisher and graphic designer Leszek Sosnowski. This fact may explain why the Polish Capital shown here, comes through in a completely different light.

Objects shown here seldom appear in other photographic collections. Among them are the unique 19th century aqueducts, serious candidates to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Images, taken from most unlikely and surprising angles, demonstrate the heart and soul of Warsaw. Unvanquished – this is how the authors came to describe this heart and this soul. This is how the city appears to them, as to outsiders. It makes them proud. It is natural to feel proud. This city, turned by the Nazis into rubble, was built anew. The Poles erected a modern city – a fitting European capital. This book illustrates the dynamic changes, which have taken place over the last decade. Well visible is the fascination with history, as well as with the modern.

The images are accompanied by the noble words and profound reflections of professor Władysław Bartoszewski, for whom Warsaw is an ancestral home.

It is not hard to like Warsaw, but through this volume it is possible to fall in love with it. "
