Memorial for the Victims of Stalinism

  Plac Ofiar Stalinizmu     27 Feb 2020
Just 200 metres from the Memorial to the Victims of Auschwitz, you'll find this large monument dedicated to the victims of Stalinism in the years 1939-1956. Unveiled in 2000, it was the first monument in Poland to explicitly memorialise in public space the Soviet crimes in Katyń, Charków, Twer and other execution sites, as well as those members of the Home Army and other Polish independence organisations condemned to death or imprisonment in PRL courts. Cast in bronze and standing 6 metres high, the design of Stefan Daus and Dr. Wojciech Kosiński depicts a woman (symbolising Poland) from which three eagles are flying away, atop a cracked granite pedestal (symbolising the division of PL after the outbreak of WWII).
