Hi, Does anyone know where I can get a copy of The Elephants of Poznan written in Polish? I want to give a copy to my niece that is half polish. Any information is appreciated. Even if you know the name of the story in polish or a book store in Poland that might carry it. Or where a PDF of it is located. I am flying blind and could use a direction. THANKS! [Confused]

I'm not Polish, nor do I read the language, but what I found out in a quick search is that the story originally appeared in the Polish magazine "Nowa Fantastyka" in the May 1999 edition (possibly # 200) under the title "Poznańskie słonie".

Don't know whether this is the only place where the Polish story was published.

Hope that helps a little.

Me again.
I found this site that offers a .pdf scan of the magazine as download (there's even a preview of the first few pages including the first page of Card's story):
http://chomikuj.pl/sopelma/Czasopisma/Fantastyka/200.+Nowa+Fantastyka+05-99,1041986463.pdf
Not sure if it's legal, though.
It seems that one has to pay by SMS.
