Adventures in Poland[edit | edit source]

Indiana Jones and his father Henry traveled through what would become Poland on the Nord Express in 1913. Crossing from Germany into Russia, Indiana commented on the German and Russian languages being divided by a line on the map when Henry corrected that the locals where they were spoke Polish. That led to a brief discussion about Poland's desire for independence.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

From Poland comes Janusz Kaminski, a cinematographer of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and many other Steven Spielberg's films.
