– The detainee heard the charge under article 261 of the Penal Code. This provision says that whoever insults a monument or other public place designed to commemorate a historical event or to commemorate a person is subject to a fine or the penalty of restriction of liberty, said senior aspirant Ewelina Fiszbain, a press officer of the Dąbrowa Police.

As the officer informed, the 37-year-old admitted to the devastation of the monument, but could not explain why he did it.

Eagle without a crown and with changed dates

The monument “in honor of the fallen Sons of the City of Dąbrowa during the war years 1914-1918 and 1920” was unveiled for the first time in 1931. It commemorates the heroes of World War I and the Polish-Bolshevik War, fighting in the ranks of Józef Piłsudski’s legions. The construction of the monument was associated with the tenth anniversary of the end of the war with the Soviets.

After the end of World War II, the monument was used to commemorate those who died in the last conflict. The city authorities ordered the eagle’s crown to be sawn on the monument, and the earlier dates were replaced with a new one: 1939-1945. In 1990, the monument underwent renovation, which restored its original appearance.
