The Warsaw Uprising monument is dedicated to all those who fought for their freedom in the uprising of 1944 as well as commemorating the civilians who died in the effort. There was (and is) quite a bit of bad feelings towards the Russians who are seen as standing idly by and not sending soldiers into the city to help them fight the Nazis.

There are many other memorials to those who fought in WWII, including a statue honoring child soldiers of the war (left) and a sidewalk display featuring the pictures and stories of some who 'disappeared' after WWII.

The city's cemetaries are interesting places, too, always full of flowers and burning candles. Note the interesting headstone on the grave to the left

As a city that claims Chopin, there is a large statue of him as well.
