Polish Radio joins effort to honour heroes of 1944 Warsaw Uprising

Public broadcaster Polish Radio has joined an annual effort to honour the fighters of Warsaw’s heroic 1944 uprising against Nazi Germany and to tell their story to younger generations.

The #BohaterOn campaign aims to commemorate the heroes of the Polish capital’s bloody World War II revolt, which started nearly 77 years ago, and to educate the public about the significance of the event.

The effort, now in its sixth year, also aims to help surviving insurgents, most of whom are now well into their 80s and 90s, by raising funds for their everyday needs.

As every year, Polish Radio is part of the campaign, whose 2021 edition was launched on Thursday and which encourages the public to send thank-you messages and donations to veterans, among other initiatives.

Polish Radio CEO Agnieszka Kamińska has said that the broadcaster’s mission for nearly 100 years "has been to spread and strengthen our common values and to pass on traditions through the airwaves."

Sunday will mark exactly 77 years since the Warsaw Uprising broke out on August 1, 1944.

The bloody insurgency, also known as the Warsaw Rising, lasted 63 days before it was put down by better equipped and more numerous German forces.

The heroic act of resistance left the city razed to the ground and resulted in the death of some 18,000 Polish fighters and 200,000 civilians.

Polish lawmakers in 2019 passed a special resolution in which they said that the Warsaw Uprising 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.
