Warsaw Uprising – we remember! – 74th Anniversary in NY

On August 1, 2018, Poland commemorated the 74th Anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising. Many Polish-Americans, whose family members fought in the Uprising or lost their lives in the Uprising, commemorated the anniversary in the United States.

In front of the main branch of the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the Polish flag with the symbol of “Kotwica,” the symbol of the Polish resistance, was raised by the member of the resistance movement Mieczyslaw Madejski, who fought in the Warsaw Uprising.

The flag will remain in Greenpoint for 63 days – the same number of days that the Uprising was fought.
