Sixty-nineth anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising this month. Many incredible photographs are to be found here: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/polish...ictures-12304/
Plus a short bio of Eugeniusz Zenon Lokajski who documented the Warsaw Uprising!
To commemorate this courageous but tragic event in Polish history I choose to focus on the inextinguishable Polish WILL to survive and overcome...
...the sacrifice made in that pursuit...
Let us not forget the barbarism of the those evil empires that conspired together in their attempt to destroy Poland once again...
Poles and Poland prevailed!! But at great cost.
