- UWAGA! UWAGA! Podajemy Komunikat Wojenny. Komunikat Wojenne krajowe i zagraniczne oraz głosy prasy i radia Paryż - Londyn - Berlin - Warszawa [Warning! Warning! We are transmitting war announcements. Domestic and foreign war news and voices of the press and radio in Paris, London, Berlin, Warsaw].
