Pomnik Powstania Warszawskiego

The Pomnik Powstania Warszawskiego or Warsaw Uprising Monument is a memorial in Warszawa, Poland, located close to the Stare miasto, opposite to the Pałac Krasińskich. Poland was occupied by Nazi Germany between 1939 and 1945. In 1943 there was an uprising of Jews within the Warszawa ghetto – which is not to be confused with the uprising of the Polish army in 1944 which is commemorated by this memorial.

On the 1st of August, 1944 the Armia Krajowa (AK) started to fight the Germans within the occupied city of Warszawa. The fight lasted for 63 days and in the end the Germans took revenge by committing mass murder against civilians, destroying important buildings and robbing art. The memorial for the heroes of the uprising was unveiled in 1989.
