Kożuchów / Freystadt Through Time
Here we have a selection of images from our ever-expanding picture archive of all things Polish and Poland! Today it is the turn of Kożuchów (former Freystadt) in Lubuskie, western Poland.
As a result of the loss of the war by Germany in 1945, the town in what was then until this point in history part of Silesia / Schlesien was transferred from Germany to Poland, and its German population was moved across the Oder-Neiss to within the new borders of Germany. The town was then renamed Kożuchów and Poles from all over pre-war Poland moved in.
Kożuchów currently has a population of around 10.000.
