    Hi Piwo,

    In fact I am not an expert in this field but I can help you, I hope so

    Both posters are associated with the Warsaw Uprising - so the proper date is 1944. Poster by Stanislaw Miedza-Tomaszewski is one of the most famous and presented in The Warsaw Rising Museum. Stanislaw Miedza-Tomaszewski, who was the godfather of the President Lech Kaczynski, prepared the highest number of the national posters during the Warsaw Uprising.

    The second poster made by Mieczyslaw Jurgiejewicz and Edmund Burke in 1944 is also associated with the Warsaw Uprising and it was the modification of the famous poster "Do broni" from 1939 by Adam Siemaszka, which was displayed on Warsaw walls in August 1939.

    Kind regards,
    Jacek

    Hi Piwo once again,

    Some supplementary details regarding poster "Do Broni" by Mieczyslaw Jurgiejewicz and Edmund Burke. It was prepared in mid-July 1944 at the request of the IV Wydział Prasowo-Wydawniczy Biura Informacji i Propagandy KG AKand printed by Tajne Wojskowe Zakłady Wydawnicze (Secret Military Publishing Company) at Chmielna Street in Warsaw. In original it was coloured poster with size: 100 x 70 cm. Your poster with reduced size was published later after WWII as an extra-print / extra-edition.

    Cheers,
    Jacek

    Jacek,
    Thank you for such complete information. So you believe that one or both posters and post war production?

    Yes Piwo, I think that both posters presented by you are post-war production. I am sure that poster "Do Broni" by Mieczyslaw Jurgiejewicz and Edmund Burke in original was much bigger (size: 100 x 70 cm) and intuitively I belive that second one by Stanislaw Miedza-Tomaszewski also should be bigger as it was designed as a poster for city walls, so it could not be too small.

    Regards,
    Jacek
