Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Without Warsaw Insurgents, we would not be here

Homeland is land and graves. Losing their memory, nations lose their lives. It is important not only where we are going, but also where we come from said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announcing the changes in law, which will allow to create a list of graves, among others of the Warsaw Insurgents and cover them with special protection of the state and increase the support fund for living combatants.

Losing their memory, nations lose their lives - these words should be deep in our hearts, memories and our actions. For that to be the case, I made the decision to make a full query, inventory all graves, from the times of the second apocalypse and earlier, from the nineteenth century, which very often disappear from our memory, somewhere in the forest said the head of government.

I also decided that graves, which will be identified as insurgent graves of the soldiers of the Home Army and our heroic ancestors, graves  that no longer have their guardians will be maintained by the Polish state, which exists and continues thanks to them stated the Prime Minister.

He also informed about the decision concerning doubling the support fund for surviving Insurgents, Cursed Soldiers, soldiers of the Home Army, to support their actions as much as possible.

As Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki emphasised, today's generations owe where they are, what they can do and how they can shape the reality to the generations that were before us. He added that we should remember this by building the foundation for a stronger Poland.

Would we be in this place without the heroes of those times, without 16 thousand people, 16 thousand names that have been placed here on the wall? No, we would not be here today noted the head of government in the Museum of the Warsaw Rising.
