A Solemn Moment in Warsaw

by guest blogger, Rosemary (a.k.a. mom)

Just down the street from our flat is the the monument of Warsaw Uprising.  A powerful representation of the fortitude, firmness, and desire of the Polish Home Army to defend their City.

The recruitment for the Army includes youngstgers and their is a separate monument of a little boy with an oversized helmet holding a huge gun.  It is called the Isurgent Child – dedicated to those children who lost their lives during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.

The seige went on for 63 days until the army was miserably defeated.  After that block by block the old town was destroyed.  Amazingly now it is rebuilt, building by building.  Floor plans were followed, same materials used, etc.
