maybe somebody is searching maps of poland from the time between
the world wars. I found that the polish Military Kartografic Institute did
high resolution maps during 1919-1939. The maps were available in
1:100000 and 1:300000. A lot of this maps are available online at

Map Archive of Wojskowy Instytut Geograficzny ( WIG ) 1919-1939

unfortunately there are almost no maps from Volhynia available.

The site above has some quirks. It is VERY slow, and it seems to
support only a small number of connections. If I try to acces the site
from home I get a "connection refused" three times out of four. At
work I see only the slowness of the site, so the "connection refused"
may come from my ISP because the site is slow.

They are looking to complete the archive so if somebody has such
Maps from the WIG ( especially from Volhynia ) could he look if his
maps are missing on the site. WWII maps from the german
"Generalstab des Heeres" are from the same data and are accepted
if the WIG map is missing.
