The Warsaw Uprising Museum is dedicated to the armed uprising of the Polish nation against the Nazi occupation 1944. The museum is located in the Polish capital city Warsaw , in the western part of the city called Wola, at Grzybowska Street79.

The Warsaw Uprising

After the Nazis occupied Poland in the beginning of the Second World War, a strong resistance movement was established in the country. All these groups got together as the occupation went on, and created an apolitical organisation, the so-called Home Army. In 1944, this resistance organisation counted over 400 000 members. Their aim was to start a national uprising from Warsaw. The leaders of the Polish resistance groups identified the danger which Stalin was representing, and therefore wanted to free Warsaw and as much country as possible before the arrival of the Red Army. They were to gain most of the influence and save the country from Stalin’s terror. They remembered very well the terror in eastern Poland, symbolised by the Katyn massacre. Stalin had the resistance groups and state infrastructure destroyed in order to gain this region more easily within the post-war arrangements. The uprising broke out in on the turn of July and August 1944. The resistance counted on help from the Red Army that was about to reach Warsaw. The uprising lasted 63 days. Insufficient amount of ammunition, water, medicine and food, along with the slowed-down advance of the Red Army, led to capitulation in the end. The number of victims, mostly from Polish youth and intelligence, in fact caused the liquidation of the structure of the Polish state. 150,000 - 200,000 civilians died in the battles as well as thousands of Polish soldiers. The city was heavily damaged but Warsaw seized to be a base point for the German Army. Heavy losses on the German side and the engagement of forces that could not operate on the East Front led to debilitation of the German forces. Unfortunately, another result was that the communists, supported by Stalin, easily grabbed power after the war ended.
