The Warsaw Uprising in 1944 was one of the most heroic and most tragic events in the history of World War II. The Uprising began on August 1, 1944, as part of a national rebellion. Armia Krajowa leaders hoped that the Red Army would continue their attack and the Uprising would last just a few days until the the Red Army entered Warsaw. However Stalin ordered troops to stop and Polish Resistance was doomed. It continued for 63 days without help and was suppressed with cruelty. By September 16 the Red Army had reached a point a few hundred meters away from the rebels' position but did not advance beyond the city borders until January 1945.

This monument was erected near the small village Halfway on the quiet rural road, that connects Combermere and Barry’s Bay, in memory of 10,000 young Polish Scouts killed during the Uprising and many more who were killed in battle or died in the concentration camps in occupied Poland during the World War.
