The 1st of August is the day chosen to celebrate the 1944 Warsaw Uprising against the occuping Nazi Army. The Warsaw Uprising was the largest single military and civilian effort taken by any European resistance movement during World War II, Polish children, woman and men chose to die fighting for freedom, bravely battling with little resources against professional and well equipped NAZI soldiers. In current times, some Polish political parties try to use the fact for their own purposes and forget that it stood for freedom.
This documentary is about what happened and has testimonials from the survivors.
I found a couple of murals in Warsaw celebrating the its memory and itd heroes.
