    Proud to say that my aunt was a courier in Mokotow during the Uprising. She did survive and always spoke about those days as the moment of pride.

    The "Dluga 7 " Uprising hospital and later the Castle Square was a scene of horror, drunk germans, ukrainians, russians and other animals killing, burning and raping.
    There is a great book online " Dluga 7 in Warsaw Uprising " by now deceased Jan Bielecki.
    the second picture above is a part of a wall where after the War people wrote notes looking for Family and Friends.
    The last picture shows a note from someone looking for Stefan Bajer after War.

    R.I.P.
    Stefan Bajer
    Jan Bajer.

    I have a relative who was a German Major during the '44 Uprising. He was wounded twice and won the German Cross in Gold, among a few other awards there. He is named extensively in Richie's work on the topic. Anyway, I would share images of his soldbuch and replacement awards, but I do not want to offend anyone as the thread is a tribute to the Home Army members. I have about 60 pages of German archival information on him and another 2002 pages now in the mail from the Polish archives in Warsaw.

    Many lives were lost because the Western Allies did not live up to their end of the agreement with the Free Polish Army and the Soviet's criminal act of stopping their offensive outside of Warsaw while the Uprising was in operation.
