Lenin and Trabants souvenirs by Jørgen Stensrud
Taken in a apartment in Nowa Huta (Krakow) when we did a story on it in Magasinet (story in norwegian).
Nowa Huta was started in 1949 as a separate town near Kraków on terrain resumed by the Communist Government from former villages of Mogiła, Pleszów and Krzesławice. It was planned as a huge centre of heavy industry. The town was to become an ideal town for the communist propaganda and populated mostly by industrial workers. In 1951 it was joined with Kraków as its new district and the following year tramway communication was started.
