Status of house building today

The built-up area of today consists of a mixture of older houses and new, extended or renovated buildings.
Straw roofed houses e.g. former houses No. 74 and 75 no longer exist. The picture gallery indicates that there is no specific influence from the local landscape on the type of buildings – a situation which is understandable from the pressures of the post war period.

Dambitsch today has three new building areas with eye-catching houses. The location of the new building areas is shown in the individual village maps (south/north).

According to the political head of Dambitsch the majority of the owners of the new buildings originate from Lissa which shows the impact of the near neighbourhood of the economic center of Lissa. By this growth an extension of the road system of the village was necessary. In former days simple house numbering of the main road of the village was sufficient. According to the political head 14 new roads were built. These are: Lesna, Zagrodowa, Polna, Kwiatowa, Poziomkowa, Malinowa, Jesionowa, Jarzebinowa, Jagodowna, Gzybowa, Jesynowa, Kalinowa, Brzozowa, Rydzyna.

Even in former days there was close connection or even dependence of Dambitsch from the economic center of Lissa. For decades quite a number of inhabitants of Dambitsch earned their living in Lissa. The new development indicates that Dambitsch is on the way to become something like a suburb of Lissa: a village within nature in which whealthy inhabitants from Lissa are building grand houses.

Only Polish people are living in the houses shown in the photo gallery. There are no inhabitants with German origin from the time before 1945 according to my knowledge.
Concerning the change in population during the past decades Dambitsch has undergone heavy changes and obviously will undergo further changes:

  • After the flight of the German inhabitants from the Red Army in the first weeks of 1945 the houses were taken over by Polish citizens.
  • The arrival of new inhabitants, e.g. from Lissa, will change the structure of the village further on.
