Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: "Each of the 63 days of the Uprising explains why Poland did not and will not perish"

We owe our freedom to the great heroes who fought for it in those terrible days of the Warsaw Uprising said the Prime Minister during a meeting with scouts and volunteers taking part in the Freedom Connects campaign organised by the Warsaw Rising Museum.

These are the heroes of not only Poland, they are the heroes of the world said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. He reminded that the Warsaw Insurgents took up an unequal battle against the greatest evil and fought until the last day, for 63 days, which taught us what fighting for freedom is.

The Prime Minister emphasised that the heroes of those days are for us the most expressive testimony of the struggle for truth, dignity and humanity. We owe the fact that we exist today to the Warsaw Insurgents said the Prime Minister. And he added, there would be no Solidarity without the Warsaw Uprising, and we would not have our freedom without Solidarity, without the Home Army, without Warsaw Insurgents, without the Cursed Soldiers.

The Prime Minister reminded about the government's activities through which we will not only look after and inventory the insurgent graves, but also devote real funds for their renovation.

We want the memory of Insurgents to continue into the future for generations, we are today the depositaries of this great value that is Poland concluded the Prime Minister.
