This is a must see for Polish and international tourist. It tells about very painfull time in Polish history. In the beginning of the German occupation during WW II the Germans expelled the inhabitans of Gdynia from their city, because they wanted to make Gdynia the Kriegsmarine port. It is very small and simple monument sitting in the middle of a street. The exprersion on the child face,looking back at the dog they were not allowed to take is heart breaking

This is in a little park just across from Gdynia Glowna -- the central train station. The statues of the people are haunting, but the "left behind" dog following them (and the child's waving goodbye just hits the heart.

It;s near to main train station in Gdynia, it's worth to see both of places. Monument is really beautiful and touching, so real to situation. It happened for real, when germans occupied Gdynia, and immidietely ousted people on the street with handbag only. I let a teardrop when I saw it for the first time. It;s a history, tragedy, I will remember it always. Tip: ul. Świętojańska - main street in Gdynia was called Hitlerstrasse during german occupation. In the corner at the end of this street was german apotheke with huge neon BAYER on the roof.

Very beautiful statue, and reminded me of the one in Dublin, paying tribute to the victims of the great famine, in Ireland. This statue means so much to the people in Gdynia. Go to the Emigration Museum, if you are interested in this topic.

It is not very spectacular but really touching monument talking about the fate of many Polish inhabitants of Gdynia during the Second World War. As German conquerors decided to transform Gdynia into own naval base (and changed its name into Gotenhafen), they also displaced Polish population from the city. Most of these people never returned home ...

A touching monument to Remember those Gdynians deported from the city following the Nazi takeover in 1939. Happy to have the opportunity to take a photo of the monument which is near the train station on my way back to Gdansk.

I am currently working with Ukrainian refugees. This is a very simple yet powerful sculpture which has stayed with me.

This is one if those sculptures, which have a meaning only when you learn te story behind it - at the first glance it's just a family escaping from the city, but the dog left behind tells the rest of the story. When the families from Gdynia were ordered to leave, they were not allowed to take any animals with them - you can learn more by visiting Museum of the Gdynia City.

another simple and expressive monument. Situated at a road junction across from the railway station it is probably missed by many. One of Gdynia's many statues reminding of the past.
