Monument to the Victims of Communist Terror

The monument was created in tribute to country defenders of September 1939 as well as the people of Ostrołęka who fell victims to the communist terror. It was unveiled by the late president Lech Kaczyński on 24 October 2008. The monument represents an eagle about to take a flight. Commemorative plaques with the names of the murdered are placed at the foot of the monument. In the proximity of the monument there were oaks planted in tribute to the soldiers of the anti-communist underground murdered in Katyń, Miednoje and Smoleńsk. At present, the square is named after the late president Lech Kaczyński.
