The Museum of the Second World War in Gdansk organizes a unique conference dedicated to the most famous historical battlefields in the World. Its speakers will be guests from Pearl Harbor and Gettysburg (USA), Marathon (Greece), Waterloo (Belgium), Gallipoli (Turkey), Verdun (France) and many others.
On this occasion, the ceremony began at 5:00 PM. The outbreak of the uprising in Warsaw was set for the "W" Hour - August 1, 1944 at 5:00 PM. Despite the difficulties in arming the people ready to fight, on this day Warsaw began a fight for free Poland. On the anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising, the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk paid homage to all the fallen Poles.
As part of the celebrations commemorating the 74th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, a screening of Miasto 44, a film directed by Jan Komasa took place on 1 August 2018 at 9:00 PM at the square situated in front of the Museum of the Second World War in Gdańsk. Thank you for being with us!
