@ National Geographic Society Natural Color Photograph by Hans Hildenbrand LOVE OF THE LAND IS DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN EVERY POLISH HEART "Our peasants," say the Poles, "have three loves: God, who gave the land; the land, because God gave it;and home, whose foundations are in the land that God gave." Despite some movement of population to the towns, and the growthofindustry since the World War, Poland, now as always, is chiefly a country of farms. The frame, log, or brick cottage is usually thatched withstraw, except inmountain regions, where the roofs are shingled. A scene near Piaski, southeast of Lublin.
