Overview

Located at the roundabout on Felicia Street, the venue pays respect to all the victims of the Soviet communist rule. One example is the massacre of 15,400 Polish officers by the Soviet Secret Police in 1940 in the Katyn forest. The memorial displays photographs of officers and other Polish martyrs who embraced death instead of mercy at the hands of Stalin. A white eagle, on the left hand corner, emerging from the flames symbolizes the country's rebirth. The memorial aims at reminding people about the atrocities of war so that it never happens again.
