    Uprising

    Warsaw Rise!

    ...Do you remember when, when the nazi's forced their rule on Poland?
    1939 and the allies turned away.
    From the underground rose the hope of freedom as a whisper.
    City in despair - But they never lost their faith.
    Women, men and children fight they were dying side by side.
    And the blood they shed upon the streets was a sacrifice willingly paid.

    Warsaw, City at war!
    Voices from underground whispers of freedom.
    1944, help that never came.
    Calling Warsaw, city at war!
    Voices from underground whispers of freedom.
    Rise up and hear the call.
    History calling to you, Warszawo Walcz!

    Spirits, all in heart.
    In accordance with the old traditions.
    1944, still the allies burned away.
    Fighting street to street in a tanglehold of desperation.
    Did it on their own and they never lost their faith.

    Under streetlights, in the city broken many years ago
    break the curfew, in the sewers, Warsaw it's time to rise now

    Once a year on august 1st, the people of Warsaw pay hommage to the fallen heroes that fought for freedom in 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. The biggest rebellion against German Nazi occupation during WWII cost over 200 000 lives and destruction of the capital.

    And, IIRC, the westward-pushing - liberating, Soviet army ....... paused. Letting the Germans focus on matters close at hand.
