That's correct, Wroclaw, Breslau before WW2. You should see the city now, especially the marketplace. It's very nice, much, much better that ten years ago. Unfortunately, we have but a few audio shops, and, what's worse, getting some decent transistors, not to mention heatsinks is extremely hard ;-((( ... But the town is still nice, and I think you could come by when you're near... :)))
