Awarded Pictures from Poland
In the communist era, circus was one of the most popular forms of entertainment in Poland. Polish performers worked with the most prestigious outfits in the world. They all came from this school. Since the 1990s, Julinek has been slowly dying. Now, the circus center that once employed up to 1,500 artists and technicians has closed due to financial problems. http://www.anzenberger.com
