Warsaw Uprising Tips (4)

On Nazi and Soviet terror

Favorite thing WOW! Warsaw Uprising 1944 Museum is the best set up museum I have ever seen in Poland. It was open in 2004. I've already visited it twice and it's not enough for me :-). Fascinating and very interesting exposition for me for many reasons:
- multimedial way of touching history (computer visual software, movies to watch on small and large screens, stories of witnesses to hear, sounds of uprising and songs of the era heard from loudspeakers, etc. etc.)
- pretty moving design (you have to see that)
- it shows both Nazi and Soviet terror
- the uprising itself which was the most tragic single event of WWII mostly unknown to the world for political reasons as for now but perfectly known (despite not so old ban on that knowledge) to Poles.

The museum reminds me a lot famous Holocast Museum in Washington, DC. Well, this one in Warsaw is smaller in size and not free (but cheap - 4 zl = below 1 euro). It refers to something I'd call "Polish holocaust." Studying various mistakes, their reasons and consequences, the mistakes made by the world leaders during WWII (Stalin, Churchill, Roosvelt) should teach a lot the next leaders and those who vote for them or support them.

Fondest memory No doubts, Warsaw Uprising Museum belongs to my foundest memories from Warsaw. I will come back there for sure... And it's more than museum, it's an institution - educational and reasearch institute. The museum growths, in March/April 2006 it's closed due to enlargement works.

The Suffering of the Polish People

Favorite thing The Warsaw Uprising Monument

Photo Taken: 04 November 2015 / Wednesday Time: 2:42pm
By: VT member Aurorae who was with us taking photos

This monument was dedicated to those who fought and died during the Warsaw uprising not for the purpose of winning the war but to die gallantly than to be a slave of nazism. Transpiring a very noble act of human sacrifice out of despair and no hope but to show resistance to the tyranny of evil abomination. The uprising was inspired by the Polish Resistance Movement.

The Warsaw uprising took place for 2 months from 1st of Aug 1944 to 2nd of Oct. 1944. A child is also depicted in this hyphotetically represented image of monument suggesting that young children also fought to die against the Nazi Army some reports identified as young as 10 years old. Having learned about the suffering of the Polish people from the hands of Nazi is heart breaking.

The uprising was defeated as a result the Nazi burned and blasted every single synagogue in Warsaw. Before the Nazi army left and retreated they intentionally and purposely destroyed the entire city and outlying suburb of Warsaw.95% of the City was destroyed

Warsaw Uprise Monument

Favorite thing In the Krasinski's square, you will the Monument of Warsaw Uprising. This huge monument was built in 45 anniversary of Warsaw Uprising. It was to commemorate the heroic riot against Nazi's occupation. That bloody uprising broke out on 1st August 1944 and lasted 63 days. Since the enemy was much stronger the fight was not equal, consequently 200,000 Polish people died in the battle-field.
