Kassala

River''' runs through Kassala, but for most of the year it is a dry sandy riverbed, used for football practice in the evenings. In the rainy season, water cascades down from the Eritrean mountains and charges through the city, making the riverbanks a popular place to walk in the evenings. However, the Gash is a dangerous river, having flooded twice recently (07 and 03) causing huge amounts of damage to the whole city. *On the other side of the Gash, you reach an area called '''Sikka Hadiid

''', which is the old railway quarter. The original railway station still stands, all impressive and colonial but abandoned now. Around this are British built round brick huts, which used to house railway workers and is now a popular place for students to live. *To the south, the '''Sawagi Janubiyya''' (southern gardens) is a collection of villages surrounded by mango and guava orchards alongside the Gash.

Kłodzko

) . The area of the former county became a popular place among the rich bourgeoisie of Breslau (Wrocław) (Wrocław), Berlin, Vienna, and Kraków. In 1910 the city had 17,121 inhabitants: 13,629 Roman Catholics (Roman Catholic Church), 3,324 Protestants (Protestantism) (mostly members of the Evangelical State Church of Prussia's older Provinces), and 150 Jews. The Kłodzko Valley region on the Nysa Kłodzka river was the focus of several attempts to reincorporate the area into Czechoslovakia after the First World War. From the Czech perspective, Kłodzko and Kłodzko Land are culturally and traditionally a part of Bohemia, although the region has been a part of Lower Silesia since its conquest by the Kingdom of Prussia in 1763. These efforts to incorporate Kłodzko into Czechoslovakia would continue into the period after World War II. File:Kladsko 1919 A.jpg The maximalist variant File:Kladsko 1919 B.jpg The intermediate variant File:Kladsko 1919 C.jpg The minimalist variant Because of the 1935 Nuremberg Laws, all Jewish Germans were declassed to so-called state citizens, as opposed to the status of Reich's citizens for other Germans. With effect of January 1939 Jews had to add either Sara or Israel as their middle names. Cf. Verordnung zur Durchführung des Gesetzes über die Änderung von Familiennamen und Vornamen, issued on 17 August 1938, published in: ''Reichsgesetzblatt'' I, p. 1044. Most of the Jews emigrated and by 1939 there were only 25 of them left. In 1938 Glatz was severely damaged by "the flooding of the century", but the damage done was quickly repaired. World War II thumb right Kłodzko (File:2014 Kłodzko, panorama.jpg) During World War II, the fortress was changed into a prison. At first it was administered by the Abwehr, but was soon taken over by the Gestapo. It was also used as a POW camp for officers of various nationalities. Beginning in 1944, the casemates housed the AEG arms factory evacuated from Łódź. The slave labourers were kept in the stronghold, which was turned into a sub-camp of Gross-Rosen concentration camp. The town itself was not damaged by the war and was taken over by the Soviet (Soviet Union) Red Army without much opposition. However, shortly after the war the Kłodzko Valley became the scene of alleged Werwolf activities. The Nazis (Nazism) had blown up all the bridges in Glatz; the only one to survive was the Gothic stone bridge erected in 1390. Within Poland After the capitulation of Nazi Germany in 1945, the town was placed under Polish administration according to the Potsdam Conference. Since then it remains as part of Poland. The German (Germans) inhabitants of the town were expelled (Expulsion of Germans after World War II) and replaced with Poles, many of whom had themselves been expelled from Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union. Other Polish settlers came from war-devastated central Poland. In May 1945 Czechoslovakia tried to annex the area on behalf of Czech (Czechs) minority (living especially in the western part of the land, called "Czech Corner") and historical claims, but on pressure of Soviet union ceased military operations and Czech minority was expelled to Germany and Czechoslovakia. In the 1950s and 1960s much of the town centre was damaged by landslides. It turned out that throughout the city's history, generations of Kłodzko's merchants had developed an extensive net of underground basements and tunnels. They were used for storage and, in times of trouble, as a safe shelter from artillery fire. With time the tunnels were forgotten, especially after the original German population was deported, and during the years after World War II many of them started to collapse, along with the houses above. Since the 1970s the tunnels were conserved and the destruction of the city was stopped. Another disaster happened in 1997, when the city was damaged by flooding even greater than that of 1938. However, the town quickly recovered. On 28 June 1972 the Catholic parishes of Kłodzko were redeployed from the traditional Hradec Králové diocese (Diocese of Hradec Králové) (est. 1664; Ecclesiastical province of Bohemia (List of Roman Catholic dioceses in Europe#Episcopal Conference of the Czech Republic)) into the Archdiocese of Wrocław. Paulus VI (Pope Paul VI), Constitutio Apostolica (Apostolic constitution) "Vratislaviensis - Berolinensis et aliarum", in: ''Acta Apostolicae Sedis'', 64 (1972), n. 10, pp. 657seq. Currently, Kłodzko is one of the most important centres of culture, commerce and tourism in Lower Silesia. It is popular with German tourists interested in the city's history and among younger tourists for its winter sports facilities. thumb 800px center Kłodzko (File:Klodzko panorama.jpg) Climate Commons:Kłodzko WikiPedia:Kłodzko Dmoz:Regional Europe Poland Voivodships Dolnoslaskie Klodzko
