Warsaw gears up to honour heroes of 1944 uprising

The Polish capital is preparing to mark the 76th anniversary of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising amid the coronavirus pandemic.

While the day is usually observed with massive gatherings, most of this year's events on August 1 will not be open to the public due to restrictions on the number of people allowed at concerts and museums.

Instead many commemorative events will be held online, and the heroes of the bloody World War II revolt will be honoured through music and cultural projects.

A Poet’s Astrology: Baczyński is a new album by singer-songwriter Mela Koteluk and the Kwadrofonik band that features works by Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński, a pacifist, mystic and romantic known as “the Poet of Fighting Warsaw.”

The album, which was released by the Warsaw Uprising Museum on Friday, is a tribute to the young poet, who was killed in the early days of the uprising at the tender age of 23.

Meanwhile, Unseen Soundwalks is an interactive, immersive show about the history of the Polish capital. It tells the story of occupied wartime Warsaw through archival sounds while enabling the listener to reimagine places that have been wiped off the map.

The project is a joint initiative by Poland’s Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Warsaw Uprising Museum.

The 10-episode series is posted on the culture.pl website and is also available as a podcast through popular audio platforms such as Spotify and ITunes as well as the Echoes app.
