Grudziądz revisited


Original playout date: 30 June 2007
Duration: 17:15

Having been roundly criticised by people from Grudziądz that my earlier film didn’t do justice to the city as I just did it from the car and didn’t show the town centre and the history, I determined to make another Grudziądz film, and in the meantime I had been back during a storm and couldn’t do it but here I finally deliver the goods.

Last time I got told off for using Russian music as it was of the oppressor, so I tried to find some more historically appropriate music for Graudenz this time, for the gallery section, don’t miss it!

Afterwards we see the town of Unislaw, whose name comes from a law that coleslaw could only be served there once during a meal.

Quote of the clip: “Grrrrrau, grrrrrrr, Grrrrrrrraudenz!!! That’s how to speak German!”
