Kornik

Kórnik is a town with about 6,800 inhabitants, located in western Poland, approximately 25km south-east of the city of Poznań. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the Wielkopolska region.Until 1961 there were two separate towns, Kórnik and Bnin, both founded in the Middle Ages, situated just 1 kilometre apart. Bnin lost its town rights in 1934, and in 1961 it became part of Kórnik. The enlarged town also includes the former settlement of Prowent, birthplace of Wisława Szymborska.The town's notable sites include: Kórnik Castle, built in the 14th century, but designed and rebuilt in the 18th century in neogothic style by architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel for the Działyński family. Town halls of both Kórnik and Bnin. That of Kornik was built in 1907 as a neo-Baroque city hall; Bnin's is a piece of original 18th-century late Baroque architecture. Kórnik Library, one of the most famous Polish libraries, founded by Tytus Działyński in 1828. Currently the library, despite being looted by the German Nazis during World War II, is one of the five largest libraries in Poland and contains roughly 400,000 volumes, including 30,000 books more than 150 years old, and 14,000 manuscripts. Since 1953 it has been a part of the National Library of Poland. During World War II, Kórnik was annexed by Nazi Germany from 1939 to 1945 as part of Landkreis Schrimm, Reichsgau Wartheland. On 20 October 1939 a mass execution of 15 local residents was carried out, part of Operation Tannenberg.
