in the Middle Persian book ''Book of Deeds of Ardeshir Son of Papak''. This story is later confirmed by Ferdowsi's ''Shahnameh''. This theory suggests that Sasan married the daughter of Papak after the latter discovers that Sasan is of royal Achaemenid descent. Hence Ardashir was born. From here onwards Sasan disappears from the story and Papak is considered the father. Ardashir helped Papak conquer some parts of Fars. It is possible that after Papak's death, his son Shapur, had a short

With the rise of the 1917 revolution (Russian Revolution of 1917), the Altay attempted to make their region a separate Burkhanist republic called Oryot, but their support for the Mensheviks during the Civil War (Russian Civil War) led to the venture's collapse after the Bolshevik victory and the rise of Stalin. In the 1940s, the Altay were accused of being pro-Japanese (Empire of Japan), and the word "oyrot" was declared counterrevolutionary.

. '''''The Great Escape''''' is a 1963 American film about an escape by Allied (Allies of World War II) prisoners of war (prisoner of war) from a German POW camp (Stalag) during World War II, starring Steve McQueen, James Garner, and Richard Attenborough. The film is based on the book of the same name (The Great Escape (book)) by Paul Brickhill, a non-fiction account of the mass escape (Stalag_Luft_III#The_.22Great_Escape.22) from Stalag Luft III in Sagan (now Żagań, Poland), in the province of Lower Silesia, Nazi Germany. Some of the characters are composites of real men. The film was made by the Mirisch Company, released by United Artists, and produced and directed by John Sturges. In the Karnstein Trilogy, based loosely on J. Sheridan Le Fanu's early vampire novella ''Carmilla'', Hammer showed some of the most explicit scenes of lesbianism yet seen in mainstream English language films. Despite otherwise traditional Hammer design and direction, there was also a corresponding increase in scenes of nudity in the films during this era. The ''Karnstein Trilogy'' comprises: * ''The Vampire Lovers'' (1970), featuring Polish (Poland) actress Ingrid Pitt * ''Lust for a Vampire'' (1971) In 2001 a twinning agreement was officially established with the Polish (Poland) district of Racibórz. *Mały Kieżmarski Szczyt (north face), Tatra Mountains, Slovakia about 900 m denivelation (vertical rise) *Giewont (north face), Tatra Mountains, Poland, 852 m above '''Polana Strążyska''' glade (Glade (geography)) *Kazalnica Mięguszowiecka, Tatra Mountains, Poland 576 m above the Czarny Staw pod Rysami *Giewont (north face), Tatra Mountains, Poland, 852 m above '''Polana Strążyska''' glade (Glade (geography)) *Kazalnica Mięguszowiecka, Tatra Mountains, Poland 576 m above the Czarny Staw pod Rysami *The six great north faces of the Alps (Great north faces of the Alps) (Cima Grande di Lavaredo 450 m, Eiger 1,500 m, Grandes Jorasses 1,100 m, Matterhorn 1,350 m, Petit Dru (Aiguille du Dru) 1,000 m, and Piz Badile 850 m) right 150px thumb POW memorial in Hemer (File:Duloh Gedaenkstaette.jpg) The first Polish POWs arrived in October 1939, and had to sleep on the floor as the beds were still not finished. Inadequate equipment remained a problem throughout the whole of the war, both because the material was needed at the front, and also because the camp was permanently overpopulated. At first the inmates were mostly from Poland and France, but after the beginning of the war with the Soviet Union in 1941 Soviet POWs quickly became the majority. Range and habitat The cave bear's range stretched across Europe, from Spain to Eurasia, from Italy and Greece to Belgium, the Netherlands and Great Britain, across a portion of Germany through Poland, then south into Hungary, Romania and parts of Russia, Caucasus and northern Iran. There have been no traces of cave bears living in northern Britain, Scandinavia or the Baltic countries, which were covered in extensive glaciers at the time. The largest numbers of cave bear remains have been found in Austria, Switzerland, southern Germany, northern Italy, northern Spain, Croatia, Hungary, and Romania. The huge number of bones found in south, central and east Europe has led some scientists to think that Europe may have once had literal herds of cave bears. Some however point out that though some caves have thousands of bones, they were accumulated over a period of 100,000 years or more, thus requiring only two deaths in a cave per year to account for the large numbers.
