Unveiling of the Anti-Soviet Partisans’ Memorial

On the 79th anniversary of the end of World War II, the Memorial to Anti-Soviet Partisans by Tomasz Urbanowicz and dr Konrad Urbanowicz was unveiled in Wrocław. The ceremonial unveiling was performed by Wanda Kiałka, a nurse and liaison of the Home Army.

The monument, depicting nine glass figures of soldiers inside glass blocks, symbolically shows the tragic situation of an entire generation that found itself in a miserable situation after 1945.

Representatives of the Wrocław local government, the Institute of National Remembrance, the army and veterans’ communities emphasized the unique character and special importance of the unveiled memorial:

It is a beautiful monument – both in terms of artistic and patriotic values. It will certainly be the pride of Wrocław.

Prof. Stanisław Ułaszewski,
President of the Lower Silesian District of the World Association of Home Army Soldiers

This most beautiful memorial in Poland, moving in its shape and symbolism, is an expression of our memory of the Anti-Soviet Partisans.

Deputy president of the Institute of National Remembrance
