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.
Community singing of the songs from the Warsaw Rising at Piłsudski Square, a concert performed by Sorry Boys & invited guests, a photography competition, a commemorative cycle rally and many more events are planned by the Warsaw Rising Museum for the 79th Anniversary of the Warsaw Rising. View full programme.
The Exhibition was opened for visitors in August 2020 as a part of official commemorations of the 76th anniversary of the Warsaw Rising. It presents hundreds of artefacts, media or works of art referring to or bearing the symbol of the Fighting Poland.
