Przemyśl Market

Przemyśl is the city where my paternal grandmother Jean Franciszka was born. I have a photograph of her standing in a street with a hula hoop. It is a beautiful city with an old fortress atop a hill where soldiers defended the city during the two world wars. The old railroad station is beautiful with arches and designs. Przemyśl is now a city on the border of Poland and Ukraine. Over the hundreds of years the borders shifted and it’s long and rich history is because of its geographic location. The old town of Przemyśl is listed as a Historic Monument of Poland.
