The Dilapidated Art Nouveau Building

Task

Trace the past of Upper Silesia.

Does this have a name: longing and the search for home and identity, the end of something, abandonment and melancholy, a lost former “greatness” of some kind, finding and catching the traces of something that is almost lost? Spoor. This is what I felt when I visited places in southern Poland.
