Remembering The Warsaw Uprising ‘44

The Warsaw Uprising ‘44 (Powstanie Warszawskie) was a major WWII operation by occupied Europe’s biggest and best organized resistance – Poland’s Home Army (Armia Krajowa), to liberate Warsaw from Nazi Germany before the advancement of Soviet troops to underscore Polish sovereignty by empowering the Moscow-independent Polish Government in Exile.

In spite of the outnumbering Nazi German forces, the Poles fought for 63 days with little outside support. On October 3, 1944 the Uprising fell to the overwhelming German forces, which were soon to retreat from the devastated Warsaw.
Many sources prove that the Warsaw Uprising ’44 was the largest single military effort taken by any European Resistance during WWII. Most Polish Home Army fighters, were persecuted and murdered after WWII by the NKVD (Soviet Secret Police) and its Moscow-backed security service (UB) installed in Poland. Some Warsaw Uprising fighters managed to escape the persecutions by emigrating, also to the United States of America.
