A mural was unveiled in Warsaw’s Solec street depicting the young poet. Flowers were also laid at the site where he was killed and at his tomb at the Powązki Military cemetery in the Polish capital.

Baczyński was 23 when he was shot by a sniper on the fourth day of the Warsaw Uprising.

He was a talented author and wrote his first works when he was barely 15. He belonged to a generation known as the Kolumbs, the first generation of Poles born in a free Poland. Many of them had their lives cut short by the outbreak of World War II.

Baczyński was one of the many young people who joined the Warsaw Uprising against Poland’s German occupiers. He was a member of the Armia Krajowa (Home Army), serving in the famed Zośka Battalion, and became the poet of fighting Warsaw.
