Silesian Insurgents MonumentEdit profile
The Silesian Insurgents' Monument in Katowice was designed in 1967 by Gustaw Zemła - a sculptor, and Wojciech Zabłocki - an architect. It is considered one of the best-designed Polish monuments and is presented at a very well exposed location. It is also the largest and heaviest monument in Poland. It is a harmonious combination of architecture and sculpture with appropriate symbolism: the wings symbolize the three Silesian Uprisings 1919 - 1920 - 1921 while the names of places that were battlefields are etched on the vertical slopes. The monument was funded by the people of Warsaw for Upper Silesia.
