Oak Jozef – Wisniowa, Poland – Atlas Obscura

The Oak Jozef, a 650-year-old English Oak in the Wisniowa region of south-east Poland, has long been a Polish symbol of pride. In 1934, its image proudly appeared on the 100-Zloty bill—and that was before it performed one of its most remarkable feats, hiding two Jewish brothers in its trunk during the Nazi occupation of Poland in World War II.
