    Default Warsaw Uprising

    I'm new on this Forum and want to introduce myself to Moderators and Members.

    I'm of Polish extraction and live in Sydney, Australia. My father fought in 2-nd Polish Corps, Carpathian Lancers Regiment in Italy 1943-45. My uncle was in Home Army Intelligence in Warsaw during occupation and Uprising. My mum was also in Warsaw uprising. Another uncle, member of Polish High Command in 1939 was shot by soviets in Katyn.
    I did not read the whole Forum yet, but I see many topics which are very interesting for me and will participate soon.
    My particular interests are: Western Europe, Pacific and war crimes everywhere in WWII.
    I guess that I'm a bit older than most Members and hope that I may be of some assistance to many of you.

    Here is an interesting site in english about Warsaw Uprising:

    http://www.warsawuprising.com/

    If you have any questions about unusual, unknown to you weapons, uniforms etc. please ask.

    Below also site in polish, but I would encourage you to explore it anyway. On the left hand side are contents icons. Scrolling down you can see icons of uniforms, armour, weapons etc. - great resource of info about Allies and Axis in WWII.

    I think it's not a widely known fact.
    I wonder how many Slovakians realize that during Warsaw Uprising (in fact since 1942) a whole platoon fought against Germans. It was known as Platoon No 535 or Slovakian Platoon. It consisted of 57 soldiers: 28 Slovakians, 3 Hungarians, 6 Georgians, 1 Ukrainian, 1 Czech and 18 Poles.
    Unfortunately, the majority of them were killed during the uprising. Those who managed to get on the east bank of Vistula, where caught by Soviets. Their fate remains unkown. Only few member of platoon survived the war.

    Very good link, good photos, If there was any army in history who deserves victory...that was the Armia Krajowa.

    I just learned that some new photos from Warsaw Uprising were recently discovered.
    A bit of explanation how this was possible 62 years after the events.
    New discoveries are mainly in communist Secret Service archives. Commies meticulously archived all items which they confiscated during the house searches of arrested Home Army members after the war - up to 1952.
    These archives are now examined and results you can see:


    Home Army fighter during lull in fighting. Early August 44. Not much weapons yet.


    Just before attack on PASTA telephone exchange. Stream of gasoline from Home Army "flame thrower", (which was a firebrigade pump), is clearly seen rising up from the house on Zielna St.




    PIAT anti tank grenade launchers dropped by RAF, US, SAAF and Polish planes were much welcomed and put to good use.

    Home Army soldiers after successful attack on German Police Headquarters.



    Last two pictures show barricade on Chmielna St.
    They are very personal for me, because my mother lived on this street and many times told me how she participated in building barricade there at the evening of 1-st of August 44. This is probably this barricade, very provisional.
    Later such hastily build by civilians "fortifications" were replaced by more solid structures constructed under supervision of Home Army sappers.
    "Bracia Pakulscy" shop was before the war one of the best delicatessen in Warsaw, with huge stores well supplied even during German occupation. My mom told me that living in close proximity to this shop during Rising made life much easier. At the end it was just maccaroni or "kasha" but still delicacy for
    starving population.


    And finally - exit from sewers - the most dreaded and most effective way of communication, logistics and evacuation of people during Warsaw Uprising.

    What an incredible history your family has, it amazes me what the Poles went through in the run up to, during and after WW2 - your family seemed at the heart of many major events - hats off to them.

    Hi mate,
    Thank you. Nothing unusual in this part of Europe... Nearly every family in Poland have similar or even more interesting stories to tell.
    I have to get my scanner going and start showing some photos on this Forum. At the moment it is connected to desktop which is occupied by my wife. Maybe I should buy new one....

    Cheers,

    Lancer44

    I am currently researching The Carpathian Lancers Im interested in the ORBAT and wondering if a Tedeusz Karol Kurlandzki served in this unit in Italy and Tobruk. I wonder if you could point me in the right direction.

    Hi mate,

    I cannot help you. I don't know. There is history of Carpathian Lancers Regiment by Jan Bielatowicz "Ulani Karpaccy", London 1966.
    It includes list of every soldier ever serving in this regiment.
    If you can find this book it will help you.

    I'll try to ask my friend, historian in Poland, about Tadeusz Kurlandzki. Perhaps he will know.

    Best regards,

    Lancer44

    I believe it was somewhere in Warsaw and I would like to visit if its still in the city.
    All the Best
