“Powerful Monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We made a special trip t see this monument and it was worthwhile as it portrays the titanic struggle of the uprising wonderfully. It has power and verve and is very evocative.
There is a second story to be read, that the monument took so long to appear - due to the Communist Authorities ban on such memorials to Polish independance aspirations - so the appearance of this monument in 1989 tells a double story.

Certainly worth a trip to see this.

Truly enormous monument and memorial to the uprising. Obviously very important reminder of the struggles of the the Poles under the Nazi occupation and their fight for freedom.
