In 2012 the brick factory, where my grandad used to work, was shut down. The factory was established in 1910. In 1917 the bricks produced there were used to build the local church. The brickwork survived the World War I & II, during which it was one of a secret, local centres of Polish resistance. Despite surviving both wars, communism, and the so called economic transformation (1989), it could not make to continue due to increasing competition in the current construction market in Poland. Along with the factory its long-time manager died. In 2014, after a controlled explosion, the brickworks chimney fell down, and the object disappeared completely. The last transport of bricks was used for expanding the local church. Its extended, new part took the place of the former school, the old part was reconstructed.
