„Here, on August 1st 1944, the Nazis executed 9 Poles”

On August 1st 1944, the Nazis executed 9 Poles. One of the seriously injured was Karol Błasiński. He died on August 9th in the field hospital at Hoża 39 Street and was buried at Powązki Cemetary.  His death was commemorated on September 15th 2001 on one of the plaques together with other soldiers of “Zaremba Piorun” battalion. The breakout of the Uprising gave Warsaw citizens a sense of new strength. On the W-hour one of the biggest independence burst in Polish history took place. Although officially Warsaw Uprising started at 5 p.m., the first gun shots could be heard a couple of hours earlier. Warsaw was fighting. Young people decided to take matters in their own hands and to liberate the city form the German occupation. The enthusiasm in their hearts and the strong sense of patriotism were their companions straight from the beginning. The occupant troops, which were quartered in the capitol city, did not expect Poles to fight so fiercely. The first hours were marked by misinformation and attempts to organize an appropriate force. A city of millions was overtaken by fight. When Hitler found out about the events that were taking place in Warsaw he became inflamed with fury. Together with Himmler they announced the order which claimed that “ each and every Warsaw citizen has to be executed, both men, women and children, and Warsaw has to be obliterated as a deterring example for the rest of Europe.”
