Another in this country's long line of tragically moving galleries, the Warsaw Uprising Museum pays tribute to the relatively unknown Polish Home Army: a brave band of fighters who attempted to overthrow the Nazi occupation of Warsaw in 1944. It's three floors are comprised mainly of photographs, although video and other wartime relics are also on display as you meander the quiet halls. Though the revolution was ultimately unsuccessful (due in large part to the devastating inaction of Russian, American, and British forces), and led to the death of over 150,000 Polish citizens, its story of courage and heroism on the part of the Polish resistance is both moving and deserving of honorable remembrance.
