Burg Eltz in the fog.
The castle is one of the few in the area that survived the Thirty Years’ War. The French did not destroy the castle thanks to its location, and some skilled diplomacy on the part of the landowners.

아직 겨울... 유럽의 겨울은 한국과는 다르다. 한겨울 내내 영하 4도에서 4도 사이 쯤으로 너무 춥지도 않은 온도지만 사람을 미치게 하는건 날씨다. 1달에 해를 볼 수 있는 날이 열흘도 안되고 항상 비 눈 우박이 섞여 내린다. 왜 사람들이 그토록 해를 찾아 다니는지 이해 할 것 같기도 하지만 한여름에 두시 세시에 공원에서 벌겋게 피부를 태우는 그들을 보면 도무지 이해가 안간다. 전생에 최소 드라큘라였나봄? 요즘은 용하 5도 7도로 좀 더 춥지만 날씨가 맑아서 그런가 기분은 좋다. 아 그리고 요즘 맥날이 혜자다. 그래서 자주 먹는다. 기승전맥날😎😍 #한국인#독일#겨울#눈#맥도날드#Koreaner#Deutschland#Winter#Schnee # #Mcdonalds
Major Ostwind from the NSZ - there was no other Pole of Jewish descent in the entire independence underground who came to such a high rank. He was born in Warsaw as Szmul Ostwind, son of Wolf and Rebecca. The Ostwind family was traditional but not orthodox. He chose Polishness alone. When he was sixteen, he escaped from home to join the Legions. He fought at Kostiuchnowka. He was interned in Szczypiorno. Ostwind defended Poland against the Bolshevik invasion in 1920. Ostwind's ambition and loyalty to Poland meant that in the Second Republic of Poland he climbed the career ladder - from the constituency officer to the head of the Police Headquarters in Warsaw with the completed officer school. During the occupation, he wore the name Zug to avoid arrest. Ostwind escaped to Podlasie. There in 1942 he joined the National Military Organization. The experience gained and military internship allowed him to move up to the officer's rank. After the war, Ostwind tried to organize an anti-Soviet underground in the vicinity of Węgrów. On January 3, 1945, he was arrested by the Security Office and taken to custody in Otwock. When the communists discovered its origin, they offered him cooperation. He refused, remaining faithful to Poland, his convictions and the oath of the National Armed Forces. Tortured and asked why, as a Jew, he served in the "fascist" National Armed Forces, Major Stanisław Ostwind-Zuzga repeated until his death: "I am not a Jew, but a Pole of Jewish origin!". A real gehenna began in Warsaw's Praga district. Major never betrayed anyone, despite brutal torture. On February 2, 1945, the Military Court of the Warsaw Garrison in a secret trial condemned him to death. The trial lasted fifteen minutes. He was executed on February 4, 1945 in urgent mode. Until a few years ago, nobody had heard about Major Stanisław Ostwind. The files of investigation and trial that fortunately survived proved to be the most knowledgeable. It was not for the main media in the Third Republic of Poland to remember the history of a Jew from NSZ - it did not fit into a mythical myth about the anti-Semitism of nationalists.
