Beschreibung    English

This is safari hunt, that is commemorating the Warsaw Uprising. The Warsaw Uprising has started on 1st August 1944, and has continued for 63 days, although poorly armed uprisers, mostly youngs without proper military training, have faced heavily armed German army.

The Armia Krajowa has hoped for Ally intervention and the major offensive of Soviet troops. The uprising should liberate Warsaw before the Red Army would do that, which would put Poland into Soviet zone of influence, which eventually happened. However, those expectations were unrealistic. The Allies has neither enough resources nor political will to give Warsaw substantial support, and the Soviets were not intrested in Poland liberating itself and becoming independent. and they have stopped their offensive. Under such circumstances, the Germans could launch a major offensive. After the uprising, the Warsaw was about to be completely destroyed on the personal Hitler's order. In January 1945, when the Red Army has taken over Warsaw, almost every building on the west side of Vistula was in ruins. 

You dont' have to visit the listing coordinates in order to log the cache, but if you do that, you'll see a monument of Little Upriser. The monument is commemorating the fact, that many younglings have fought and ceased in the uprising, although in reality, most of them had only hand-made weapons.

Uhh, a Safari Cache we can log on the fly. Fortunally we were in Warsaw a month ago and sure, visited the Uprising Memorial at the Coordinates N 52 14.949 E 021 00.354 .

The explaintion from Wiki:

Warsaw Uprising Monument (Polish: Pomnik Powstania Warszawskiego) is a monument in Warsaw, Poland, dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Unveiled in 1989, it was sculpted by Wincenty Kućma and the architect was Jacek Budyn. It is located on the southern side of Krasiński Square.

The monument has been described as "the most important monument of post-war Warsaw."

It was very impressiv and all of the memorial places around the Uprising makes us thoughtful.


Thanks for this special Safari
