Sunday marked exactly 100 years since the last of the armed uprisings against the Germans started in what is now Poland’s southern Upper Silesia region.

Ethnic Poles in the area fought a series of three armed insurgencies from 1919 to 1921 to break away from Germany and join newly independent Poland.

Speaking during a ceremony on Sunday at Góra Świętej Anny, the site of the 1921 Battle of Annaberg against German forces, President Andrzej Duda paid tribute to "all those who fought ... and were ready to die for Poland" during the Silesian Uprisings.

Duda said: “I bow my head to all those young men from Silesian towns and families who spilled their blood and sacrificed their lives as they fought to reclaim this region for Poland."

Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia.
