Red Army Street

I recorded this ride on the Red Army Street, ulica Armii Czerwonej, in Krosno Odrzańskie, Crossen and der Oder, on 2 May 2016.

Isn’t this interesting and important that Communist street names have been left unchanged in this town? Their presence contradicts the official narrative about the collapse of Communism. The names were changed in 2016-17.

For more than twenty five years after 1990 nobody bothered to implement the change. In Kołobrzeg/Kolberg on the Baltic coast, there was a street named after a Communist assassin Kniewski. It did not bother anyone either.

These street names were finally removed, when these Communist sentiments were too obviously exposed. The removal was not dictated, however, by a public outrage, but by a pragmatic desire to mask the lie about the collapse of Communism.
