Today’s headline had me at hello: Congratulations Curtis Dagley!

Krakow’s Gothic masterpiece- the Veit Stoss altar (ca.1480)!

Great article by Andrea Holbrook: Poland to Honor Fisherman for Saving Treasure

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland will present Curtis Dagley with a Bene Merito Medal, Thursday, October 27 at 2PM in City Hall. “Mr Dagley is honored for his participation in returning to Poland cultural treasures robbed by Germans during WWII; and also in recognition of the imprisonment he suffered at the hands of the Communist authorities of Poland.”
