1848 · Greater Poland Uprising (1848)

Age 6

Europe experienced a period of rebellions and political upheavals known as the Spring of Nations. During this time, the Greater Poland Uprising of 1848 began against Prussian forces. Much of the fighting was concentrated in the Greater Poland region, but some fights did occur inside of the Prussian Partition. The insurrection was ultimately unsuccessful for the Polish and resulted in many casualties on both sides. The Kingdom of Prussia had at least 500 deaths and over 640 Polish citizens were killed.
1857 · Hotel Europejski is Opened

Age 15

The Raffles Europejski Warsaw, known as The European Hotel, is a famous luxury hotel in the center of Warsaw, Poland. Upon opening in 1857, it was considered one of the most luxurious and modern hotels in Europe. The hotel suffered serious damage during World War II, but was rebuilt for a grand reopening in 1962. The location remains an iconic vacation spot to this day.
1881 · Great Synagogue

Age 39

Located in Łódź, Poland, the Great Synagogue of Łódź was built in 1881. Adolf Wolff designed the layout. Referred to as The Temple, it served the reformed congregation for many years. Unfortunately, the synagogue was burned and destroyed by Germans in 1939.

Name Meaning

Polish or eastern German (of Slavic origin): probably a derivative from a base kuj- (Polish kuć) ‘to forge’, ‘to hammer’, hence an occupational name for a smith.
