Poland marks anniversary of Warsaw UprisingBreaking News
With Poland's post-war communist authorities bent on trivializing the Home Army's wartime drive for Polish sovereignty, the uprising was relegated to the margins of history until the demise of communism in 1989.
For over 40 years, the communist regime branded it a hopeless suicide mission which had been 'irresponsibly' ordered by Poland's wartime government-in-exile in Britain.
But in 2004, the 60th anniversary of the event finally saw the opening of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising Museum, a multi-media facility devoted to documenting one of the most dramatic episodes of Polish history.
