Monument
May 2019
This place at Plac św. Jana in Sanok, between the castle and the main seat of Muzeum Historyczne (history museum), above sharp drop of San river embankment, used to host a Tadeusz Kościuszko (Polish supreme head of the armed forces in late 18th century) monument in the years 1902-1941. That monument, destroyed during WWII, was only reconstructed in 1962, but in different spot. Local people seen this place as a perfect for a different monument, this time to the people of Sanok and vicinity, who gave their lives during WWII. Such idea was debated ever since the war, but only in the nineties it really took off the ground. But it took long years to actually built it. Finally, on 11 november 2005 the monument was unveiled. Its central part is taken by a sword in the shape of cross. On both sides of the sword there are 37 plaques mentionig battlefields and concentration camps known to be a resting place of fallen and murdered people from Sanok. The urns with soil from those places are also embeded in the monument. Monument located in tourist orientated part of Sanok, so it is hard to miss.
