  1. That was a courteous gesture and I appreciate it.

  2. Also, the Polish and Israeli post offices have released a stamp marking the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining its independence and the 70th anniversary of the creation of Israel. Here's the link:

    1. Hello Mr. Sokołowski,

      As a side note I would like to add that it's not the first such joint project. In 2009 Polish and Israeli postal services jointly issued a stamp honoring heroic colonel Berek Joselewicz.
      Stamp was a miniaturized copy of a painting by Juliusz Kossak.

  3. Hello Dr Goska,

    Image that You posted it's actually a painting. It's author is a polish painter Jarosław Wróbel. Link to his site is below.

    1. Lukasz, thank you. Just curious, how did you know?

    2. You're welcome.
      There is a maker's signature on that painting. All I had to do is to magnify the image. The rest was easy.
      Mr. Wróbel is well known illustrator in Poland. His works are on hundreds of covers of books and magazines about militaria and history.
