Przyczynek do sprawnego działania organów administracji państwowej Drugiej Rzeczypospolitej (odbudowa wsi podkrakowskich po wybuchu składu amunicji w 1927 r.) .

Jan M. Małecki


In  the middle of the middle 19th cemtury, Cracow belonged to the Wustian Empire and was transformed intoa stronghold. Th ecity was encircled by forts at the back of witch military warehouses were created. On 5 June 1927, a catastrophic explosion occccurred in the gunpowdder and ammunition warehouse that was localed on the northern outskirts of Cracow's outlying village Witkowice. The explosion killed two pepole, however, hundreds were injured and immense material losses were caused in a extensive area of some of Cracow's districts and numerous nearby villages. The most damaged were Górka Narodowa and Witkowice with the hospital for children suffering from trachoma located right next to the warehouse. Help was immediately brought to the injured. Reconstruction of the damaged buildings (1794 altogether) was delegated to the Regional Direction of Public Works in Cracow. The repairs of the damaged residential and utility buildings were financed by the government. The buildings that couldbe no longer used were rebuilt according to a single design preserving their area.  The whole action was carried out so efficiently that reconstruction of the village was finished at the beginning of September. Well-designed pavilions were built in the place of wooden barracs that constituted the hispital. the little patients could return in it already in December. Only finishing works had to be carried out. A new chapel was completed in 1929, and a new administrative building in 1932.
