The lower house of Poland’s parliament, the Sejm, adopted the resolution by acclamation on eve of the 75th anniversary of the start of the wartime revolt.

The parliamentary resolution saluted “all the heroes of the Warsaw Uprising," saying the insurgency was “one of the most heroic and tragic Polish battles of World War II" and the largest military operation by any underground resistance movement in German-occupied Europe.

MPs applauded and chanted "Honour and Glory to the Heroes” after the resolution passed the house on Wednesday, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.

The Warsaw Uprising began on August 1, 1944 and lasted 63 days before being put down by better equipped and more numerous German forces.

The insurgency resulted in the death of some 18,000 Polish fighters and 200,000 civilians.
