A most impressive monument that is designed in the form of a train carriage loaded with a large pile of crosses symbolizing the hundreds of thousands of Poles transported in carriages cattle east to the USSR, where they were massacred in the Soviet labor camps.
The names of the death camps are stamped on the rails.

It's a must to see. This magnificent monument commemorates the fate of 1.5-2 millions Poles (including children, infants and old people) who were sent by the Soviet Union to Gulag labour camps of Siberia in 1940, where most of them perished.

This is probably one of my favorite things in Warsaw. This monument is just amazing. It's located between two roads, so a bit hard to look around, but please take your time. It's well done.

Such momument reminds us how oppresive the totalitarian regimes may be. It really sad to know that so many people where killed and humilitated such way.

It is a monument dedicated to to Polish officers etc taken prisoner murdered during the ww2 in the Soviet Union. Later on, when Germany attacked USSR and Poland became its ally, Stalin famously pretended they escaped to Manchuria, and USSR denied its involvement until Gorbachev. The massacres were discovered by Germany and Polish demand to investigate the matter was an excuse for Soviets to break the diplomatic relations with Poland and, later, establish its own, communist Polish army and government.

The monument consists of tombstones (mostly Latin crosses, but also a smaller number of Orthodox, Jewish and even Muslim symbols) on a railway wagon.

There was a small controversy when an investor wanted to name a new residential quarter, located somewhere between this monument and the Umschlagplatz, where from Jews were being taken to concentration camps, "The Gate to Happiness". He decided to change the name when informed it's not quite fitting the place.

Poland is a country marred with tourtures of the World War, however it has bounced back with aplomb and rebilt from the ashes. There are several momuments built in honor of the fallen hearoes and deprived soul in the capital city of Warsaw.

This 'Monument for the fallen hero and murdered in the east' is dedicated to the victims of the Soviet Invasion of Poland and depicts a railway flatcar loaded with religious symbols referring to the deportation of Poles by rail to labor camps. The railway sleepers bear the names of the cities from where they were transported and their destinations. My visit to the monumnet was part of the walking tour I undertook and my eyes really swelled up listening to the stories of the yeateryears.

Must visit by all means.
