      Once a year on august 1st, the people of Warsaw pay hommage to the fallen heroes that fought for freedom in 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. The biggest rebellion against German Nazi occupation during WWII cost over 200 000 lives and destruction of the capital. Warsaw is an incredible city. A similar event also takes places on Corpus Christi. The entire city remains quiet as the celebrators walk quietly through the streets. It is a city whose heart and character is clearly shown.

      A busy city stands still for a full minute to honor its heroes. Very cool. It gave me goosebumps to think about how freaky that would be if you didn't know what was going on.

      If this truly happens every year then I want to be there one year - Every August first, everyone in Warsaw stands still for a full minute to remember 200,000 dead

      This is a great reminder of the sacrifices that have been made for us all. What a message..

      If you read about it - there are very conflicting accounts. However, we need to learn from the truth. I am 1/2 Polish (so I feel ethnic pride), but supposedly the Polish underground turned their backs on the members of the Warsaw Ghetto. They were unwilling to fully support their cause. What the Jews in the Ghetto did was an inspiration. However, we have to fight against intolerance everywhere. In Poland, there was a culture of intolerance and a culture of welcome that fought each other in a figurative sense. I am glad the Poles remember, but remember because of the amazing and almost solo achievement of the Jews in the Ghetto.

      Trying to teach my son about guns and wars. He is nine years old and does not understand that guns and war kill. I will show him this. :)

      @Crystina, well to be honest there were lot of Poles murdered just because of throwing bread over the ghetto walls. There was no such thing as intolerance during the IIWW in Polish ranks, and the Jews in the Ghetto were Poles. People who lived in the houses there also stayed there, forced to share the fate of all people in the ghetto. Germans did not treat anyone nice.

      Almost every piece of gun sent to the Ghetto was sent by Polish Underground Army, the Polish Governmnent in Exile during that day thought that an uprising will worsen the case, and also thought the same during the Warsaw Uprising. It was just the anger, helplessness and silly fate inn romantic ideals of young people that drived them into starting the Uprising. Mentioning intolerance, and saying that there was a culture of it is just awful and disrespectful.
