The Red Army took over the city of Leszno on the night of 30/31 January 1945. The German occupation was over. German residents fled in a hurry and left over property and personal belongings in their deserted houses. A few weeks later in one of the apartments a photography treasure trove was found, namely a collection of photographs taken by Alfred Mensebach in September 1944. He was an architect and a member of Sprengkommando, stationed at 13, Płocka Street in Warsaw, a unit within the Technisches Nothilfe, responsible for detonating monuments and houses in Warsaw.
During the Warsaw Rising a transitory camp in Pruszków near Warsaw, known as Dulag 121, was created by Germans who were expelling Poles from every district they took over in Warsaw. The German authorities promised that the deportees would be provided with personal safety and decent conditions. These were empty promises. The Warsaw Rising Museum has a unique collection of photographs taken in Dulag 121. They are a poignant testimony of the plight the Poles found themselves in.
In 1944, during the Warsaw Rising, the Western Allies launched a special operation known as the Warsaw Airlift to drop supplies such as weapons, amunition, medicines, food and clothes to the Poles struggling for freedom in Warsaw, the heart of their occupied country. Four-engine bombers – Liberators, Halifaxes and B-17s had usually seven crew members on board. The aircrafts took off from the airfields in Southern Italy and (once) from Great Britain. The airlift was an example of superhuman heroism. What made it all possible? Skills, cleverness, luck and… faith in God, as the crew members recalled.
