My flag will be out on the 78th Anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising.
As the little man in Moscow seeks to restore the Soviet Empire in Europe, the Poles have not forgotten the Russian agreement to divide Poland with Germany.
They have not forgotten the hell holes of the Gestapo or the NKVD. The Poles have not forgiven Russia for the Katyn Forest massacres. They still remember the betrayal of the Yalta Conference.
On August 1 at 5 p.m., they remember the start of the Warsaw Uprising. Warsaw and cities across Poland come to a stop at 5 p.m. to honor the men, women, and children that started the greatest uprising in Nazi-occupied Europe.
The Russian occupiers did not leave Poland until 1992, and until they left, Poles were not allowed to honor the Warsaw Uprising. That has not been forgotten.
