The Polish uprising of 1944 was a great example of how a city could rebel against its occupants. Though it was not successful, there were many underage children who participated in the uprising and laid down their lives. This statue is of great importance to...More

Located by the walls that surround the old town, it's a little statue with lots of history behind to tell. But you have to discover it by yourself, or with a guided tour. It's dedicated to the children soldiers who died in 1944, in the...More

An adequate statue of a boy, usually decorated by a stag night the day before rather like the Manneken Pis in Brussels.
