By 1944 with the tide of war turning, and their resources and morale seemingly in disarray, German forces had begun a strategic retreat from Warsaw. The Home Army (Poland’s wartime underground movement) launched a military strike with the aim of liberating Warsaw from the occupation and installing an independent government. The battle lasted 63 days and cost the lives of over 20,000 troops and some 150,000 civilians. With the uprising defeated, Hitler ordered all remaining civilians to be expelled, and surviving buildings to be numbered in their order of importance to Polish culture and systematically dynamited. The darkest chapter of Warsaw’s history had been written. On the 60th anniversary of this event (1st of August 2004) the Museum of Warsaw Uprising opened.
