Wroclaw

Monument to Victims of the Flood

  Most Uniwersytecki ,   Old Town         more than a year ago
Standing halfway across Most Uniwersytecki you’ll come across Stanisław Wysocki’s tribute to the thousands of anonymous heroes who sprang to Wrocław’s rescue during the great flood of 1997. Erected in 1998 the three metre structure depicts a nameless woman wading out of the water carrying books, mimicking scenes that took place in 1997 when local students joined efforts to save the priceless artefacts hidden in the University Library.
