newsreel from the 1930's about colonizing ambitions
of the independent Poland. On December 28, 1934 at 4
p.m. a ship with eight daredevils on board sailed out
from the Gdansk's harbor. Their goal is to break fresh
grounds and establishing the first colony in one of
the still not colonized at the time countries: Liberia.
They carry many tropical "necessities" with:
cement, cotton sheets, duvets, chamber pots... On January
19th they saw the land. The rest is history. Not necessarily
a glorious one...
