"Krucza Street, Warsaw, 1945"

The German army burned the city to the ground, destroying 85% of the buildings in Warsaw. The Russians found 174,000 inhabitants when they finally expelled the Germans, this was less than 6% of the pre-war population.

[Edit] To get a sense of the scale of what happened to Warsaw, consider viewing the short film City of Ruins on YouTube. This film depicts the view from a B-24 Liberator as it flys over the razed landscape of Warsaw in 1945. The digital model of Warsaw took over a year to reconstruct from wartime aerial photographs; the film is shown at the Warsaw Rising Museum.

"You one of those right wing nut outfits?" inquired the diplomatic Metzger.
Fallopian twinkled. "They accuse us of being paranoids."
"They?" inquired Metzger, twinkling also.
"Us?" asked Oedipa.
