Westerplatte Monument, Gdansk, POLAND

Westerplatte Monument located on the Westerplatte Peninsula in Gdansk (German: Danzig)

A Place of National Remembrance. Symbol of the valour and courage of Polish troops in their fight against the German invaders. Between the 1 and 7 September 1939, two hundred men commanded by Major Henryk Sucharski, fiercely resisted the attack of German troops who were supported by the massive guns of the battleship, Schleswig-Holstein. The Polish forces capitulated when there was no longer any hope for them left.
