The German Embassy in Warsaw lowered the flags to half-mast on Sunday, while the US Embassy remembered the heroic 1944 struggle of Poles against occupying Nazi German forces in a statement posted on Twitter.

Germany’s Ambassador to Warsaw Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven said that as "a sign of profound grief and shame because of the cruel crimes committed by the German occupiers against the people of Warsaw," flags were flown at half-mast at the country's diplomatic buildings in Poland.

Meanwhile, the US Embassy in Warsaw said in a Twitter post that "on August 1, 1944, Poles heroically took up arms to fight for their beloved city and homeland. (...) We are paying our tribute to the heroes of the Warsaw Uprising."

Some 20,000 fighters of the Polish Home Army took up arms against the Germans on August 1, 1944, launching what would be a 63-day uprising which was eventually quashed by the better-armed Nazis.

About 200,000 Poles – mostly civilians - died in the insurgency, while much of Warsaw was razed to the ground.
