“Muhahaha and enter. This place in Warsaw, Poland, was once a fluorescent light factory. The plant was called many things but is known as “Polam” aka “Rosa Luxemburg.”  Rosa was born in Poland in 1871, and was a philosopher, activist, and ideologist of the Polish and German worker’s movement.

As turbulent as her life was, so too is the history of this abandoned factory…

“The sign on the right reads, “This building is out of order! You are not allowed to enter because you may DIE!” Welcome to the abandoned Polam Philips factory in Poland. “Polam” manufactured fluorescent lights, mercury lamps and electron tubes.
