Publication Details Click to collapse Cite/Export

Summary

  • During the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944, more than 85% of Warsaw's historic center was destroyed by Nazi troops. After the war, a 5-year reconstruction campaign by its citizens resulted in today's meticulous restoration of the Old Town, with its churches, palaces and marketplace. It is an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century.
