New law

According to the new law names of streets, buildings, roads, bridges, squares can't commemorate or symbolize communism. A lot of cities still had names like that, therefore the names had to be changed. There were three streets in my city that neeeded to be renamed.
----------
Według nowego prawa nazwy ulic, budynków, dróg, mostów, placów nie mogą upamiętniać czy symbolizować komunizmu. Wiele miast wciąż posiadało tego typu nazwy, dlatego musiałyone zmienione. W moim mieście trzy ulice podlegaly nowej ustawie.

Kniewskiego St....
----------
Ulica Kniewskiego...
...is now Jagiellonska St.
----------
...jest teraz ulicą Jagiellońską.
Walki Mlodych St...
----------
Ulica Walki Młodych...
...was changed to Jan Pawel II Av.
----------
...została zmieniona na Aleję św. Jana Pawła II.
There is one more, but I don't have pictures of it. Zbowidowcow St is now Komandorska St.
----------
Jest jeszcze jedna, ale niestety nie mam zdjęć. Ulica Zbowidowców jest teraz ulicą Komandorską.

There are old and new names of the streets on some of the buildings.
----------
Na niektórych budynkach widnieją stare i nowe nazwy ulic.

  2. I was thinking the same thing as Tom. Should symbols or names of unfortunate times be out of view? It will not change history but will it cease to highlight it? Very interesting. What do you think of your street names being changed? Love your photos as always!

  4. I think it is a good idea. When I was in Poland last summer, there seemed to be plenty of reminders of communism still there in the architecture.

  6. What a good idea. I'm sure it isn't being met with wholehearted enthusiasm by everyone, but time will take care of that. Many countries are now doing the same, separating their streets from the less happy parts of the past.
