On August 1, at 5 p.m., sirens will howl in Warsaw. The city will stop for a symbolic minute of silence.

A call for a minute’s silence

– I am appealing for a minute of silence when the sirens will sound on August 1 at 5 pm. This is a very special moment when the whole of Warsaw freezes at the “W” hour. I asked other local government officials to celebrate this moment at home as well, and it is slowly becoming a nationwide tradition – said President Trzaskowski, quoted in the communiqué on this subject.

The president was accompanied by Janusz Komorowski, a member of the Presidium of the Main Board of the World Association of Home Army Soldiers.

– I have an earnest request to all Warsaw residents to stop at 5 pm on August 1 and pay tribute to those Warsaw youth who were ready to fight for Poland and its good name until the last breath – appealed Komorowski.
