I pass this mural every day on my way to work. It’s usually impossible to get the whole thing in a single shot, thanks to the lines of cars parked along the sidewalk, but the streets were empty at 5:30 this morning.

My neighbors make up the largest Polish community in New York City, and the second largest in the United States. The white eagle spreads its wings on every pharmacy and bodega, and despite the state of the walls on either side of this mural, I’ve never seen a trace of graffiti on the painting itself. 

The Uprising began on the first of August, 1944, and continued for nearly two months to the day, as the Polish resistance fought to liberate their home from Nazi rule. It coincided with the Soviet Operation Bagration, a push to clear German forces from Belarus and eastern Poland. However, after securing their interests east of Warsaw, the Soviets abandoned the Polish resistance fighters, leaving them to continue the struggle against the Germans single-handed. Stalin hoped that the Polish Home Army—and its support for the nation’s government in exile—would be destroyed, leaving a clear path for pro-Soviet interests after the war. 

The resistance continued on alone.

It wasn’t until late September that the Wehrmacht retook the city, and even then, the Poles fought on, from back streets and their own homes, with a determination and ferocity that infuriated the Germans.

The conflict ended on October 2nd, with 15,000 Polish resistance fighters sent to POW camps. Another 5,000 managed to blend back into the civilian population, in hopes of rising again. But despite German assurances that they would treat all combatants in accordance with the Geneva Convention, the people of Warsaw, some 550,000 strong: families, shopkeepers, veterans and scholars—were expelled from the city. 90,000 were sent to labor camps, 60,000 to death camps, the rest were released at various locations in the General Government. Scattered, the Germans hoped, for good. 

To that end, and to smooth the way for Hitler’s long-anticipated re-imagining of Poland as an idyllic German cultural center, Himmler ordered that Warsaw be razed to the ground. 85% of the city was destroyed, with special attention paid to national and artistic icons, archives, and centers of medieval history.

A rebuilt Warsaw bears the scars to this day.

This month marks exactly seventy years since the Uprising, one of the bloodiest and most noble struggles of the Second World War. The citizens of Warsaw fought for liberation, for their own human dignity, and were willing to make unbelievable sacrifices in pursuit of both. 

Poet Anna Swir, who joined the resistance as a young woman, put it simply:

Said the Major
(in memory of Anna Ratynska)

“The order must be delivered within the hour,”
said the major.
“That’s impossible, it’s hell out there,”
said the second lieutenant.
Five runner-girls set out,
one got through.

The order was delivered within the hour.
