This year marks the 75th anniversary of one of the Second World War’s forgotten tragedies: the Warsaw Uprising. For two months in the summer and autumn of 1944, the Polish Home Army – the largest organised resistance movement in occupied Europe – waged a bitter struggle against the Nazis, before the insurgency was brutally crushed, resulting in the almost total destruction of the city of Warsaw. In this talk, local historian Max Loth-Hill explores the story of this tragic chapter of Polish history, the subsequent suppression of its memory by the communist authorities in post-war Poland, and its broader significance with regards to the beginning of the Cold War. Max’s talk builds upon research he is currently undertaking as part of an MA in history at Durham University, where he begins work on a PhD this autumn.
