Poland: Postcard from Wilamowice

Wilamowice is a small town in southern Poland, situated in the Bielsko County, Silesian Voivodeship. The endangered language of Wymysorys is spoken here by about 70 native speakers, the majority of them elderly. The language was the main one of the town until the early communist period (1945–1956), when authorities repressed it. The inhabitants identifying themselves with the original culture are Wilamowiczanie.

Postcard arrived in this cover with this definitive flower stamp issued on 15.07.2016.

Thank you Paulina!
