In addition to information about the Krzywa airport.

In addition to the information about the Krzywa airport, it should be stated that on October 1, 1938, the German air force bought land for the foundation of the airport. The airport was incorporated into the Legnica airport hub. In addition to the airport itself, workshops were built for the assembly and repair of combat aircraft. After the outbreak of the war, in the forests near Szczytnica, the Germans set up a prisoner-of-war camp. The POWs worked not only on the expansion of the airport, but also on the assembly of combat aircraft. These were, among others, Focke-Wulf Fw 190 fighters. Today, it is not known where exactly the POW camp was. It is known that the POWs had to pass through a tunnel under the Wrocław-Dresden / Berlin motorway on their way to the airport.
