Mound of the Warsaw Uprising

Local name: Kopiec Powstania Warszawskiego

The basis of the Warsaw Uprising Mound in Czerniakow is the rubble of Warsaw buildings destroyed during the demolition and burning of the city by German soldiers, which began after the fall of the uprising. Today, at its top stands the Sign of Fighting Poland, designed by the architect Lieutenant Colonel. Eng. Eugeniusz Ajewski, soldier of the Home Army.

In the 1960s, the mound was called "Zwałka", rubble and rubbish were systematically transported here. Other, unofficial names also functioned, for example, students of the University of Warsaw named the place "Kucejka Tumulus", referring to the person of the Major of Polish People Army (LWP), who led classes in a military college.

It was not until 1998 that the World Association of Home Army Soldiers came out with the initiative of the development of the mound. A proposal was made to call it the "Mound of National Remembrance". Finally, it was established that this will be a place in honor of the insurgents and on the 60th anniversary of the uprising the area was cleaned up, and the mound gained today's name.
