Post subject: History Videos by Rogvist
Recently, I was looking for videos describing Polish Husaria - The Winged Hussars. I found a few interesting films, mainly episodes from movies With Fire and Sword and The Deluge, based on Henryk Sienkiewicz Trilogy. There were also pictures of Hussars in a Russian epic movie trailer entitled 1612.
But I also found other videos which caught my attention and just delighted. Those were videos made by a man under nickname Rogvist. I contacted Rogvist and asked about his permission to put other of his videos on our History Videos secton. He geneorously agreed and now you can watch these great pictures of Polish history from medieval times to Warsaw Uprising provided with short descriptions here: History Videos
The videos are not only very well shot, show thorough historical knowledge of the author, but also you can almost feel the message of a great pride to be Polish. In my opinion, this is especially visible in My Tribute to Poland series.
A few days ago Rogvist sent me a message about remake of The January Uprising 1863 video he had made. The new version is not only three times longer, has many more great pictures and music, but also you will find there a lot of interesting historical facts.
One of the Uprising repercussions we experience until today is the fact that to punish Poles, Russians introduced their language as a mandatory in education and government. This also meant that all civil and religious registers began to be recorded in the occupant language after defeat of Uprising.
This is why birth, marriage and death certificates of our great-grandparents who used to lived under Tsar rule are recorded in Russian...
