Every time I visit Warsaw, I come here. There's a "military" side and a civilian side. The military side also has famous people here too: Writers, sports people, politicians etc. I walk through the military side and in particular, the area where the uprising soldiers are buried. At the bottom of the cemetery there's a new monument , this was built around 2016 on top of mass burial site where over 250 people were dumped during world war 2. Permission was finally granted to exhume these corpses in around 2014, after the government stepped in to quash the protests of the families of people whose graves had to be removed for access. Also, in this cemetery is a monument to the Smolensk plane crash, which killed government officials travelling to Katyn to remember over 25000 military officers and high ranking officials killed by the Russians in World War 2. Notable people who died in this incident were Lech Kaczynski, President of Poland, Anna Walentynowicz, co-founder of the Solidarity trade union.
