The Poles often blame the Ukrainians for their actions erasing the memory which connected to the city of Lviv with Polish culture and Polish history ... We will not confirm or deny it, let the facts be solved:
City of Wroclaw
– about 120 German cemeteries were destroyed in the city of Wroclaw, German’s tombstones can be seen everywhere in the city...
|St.DorotiCemetery during the Elimination (now the Anders Park)
In 1967 the liquidation of the cemetery began - it was demolished completely. In 1975, the inhabitants of the city on a voluntary basis created here the "Park of the XX-th Anniversary of the Polish People's Republic". Several years later the northern part was renamed in honor of the general Anders
You can sit on them, because they are benches; You can feed the swans, standing on the tombstone of a 5-year-old dead girl, because they have been used for a stairways of the edge of the river Audrey’ bank; you can take a walk on other tombstones , ride a bike, a car, as they were used in the construction of roads and sidewalks.
Parks and squares in Wroclaw are actually former German cemeteries ... The same happened in Szczecin, Gdańsk and in many other polish cities.
In Wroclaw, all Germanic monuments were destroyed, almost all the streets got new names ... Left names only in a few cases, such as the street Copernicus.
West Park - one of the most favorite holiday destinations for the inhabitants of Wroclaw. Its integral part was children's playgrounds, open-air activities and a picnic atmosphere in the middle of a thick forest. This charming corner of the city is former two cemeteries: one municipal, another - Catholic. They, of course, were aligned with the ground.
There are few traces of cemeteries. The monument of the angel became an adornment of the park, and a tombstone with the inscription: "Auch der Schmerz ist Gottes Bote" (Patience is also a message from God).
After the fall of communism in Wroclaw, the names of the streets or squares were immortalized only by three people with Germanic names but they were all Jewish origin:
Ferdinand Lassalle (socialist),
Edith Stein (declared holy Pope Benedict by the Roman),
Max Born (Nobel laureate, physicist).
Traces of Wroclaw Cemeteries - Evidence of savagery:
Last year the City Council agreed to name two streets with names of prominent German architects. However, it should be noted that the debate was very violent, and Tomasz Malek, a deputy of the Law and Justice ruling party in the Poland, said during the meeting that memories of German crimes during the Second World War were too fresh so the streets should not be named after them and therefore Germans had destroyed and robbed the Poland.
City of Lviv
Polish tombstones in the Lychakiv cemetery in the Lviv city endured the period of communism - nobody demolished them. Today the cemetery has gotten the status of a museum.
Polish Cemetery of the Polish Eagles , located in the Lychakiv Cemetery in Lviv city, has a separate part. In the 70's it was demolish by Soviet tanks. But the tombstones were not taken and used for the construction of roads, walls or stairs and today the cemetery is in almost the same condition as before the war.
This was only one case in the world when a people, occupied by another nation, after their independency, agreed to rebuild a memorial in their city that symbolizes their conquered, and the victory of the former invader. This is exactly the case: the monument of fame of Polish weapons in the city of Lviv is simultaneously a symbol of defeat and loss of Ukraine's independence ... I emphasize on it in full confidence-there is nowhere else in the world such a broad gesture of goodwill for neighbors.
We will name a few streets of Lviv with Polish names:
A. Fredro str.,
Boy Zhelensky str.,
Maria Konopnitskaya str.,
Gabrieli Zapolskaya str.,
Yan Mateyko, Square,
Adam Mitskievich str.,
Stefan Banach street,
Juliush Slovatski str. and so on ...
The Polish monuments will also be remembering follow:
Monument to the January uprising,
Monument of Adam Mickievicz,
Kopets of Lublin Union,
Monument of Jan Kilinsky,
Monument of Bartosz Glovatski,
Monument of Theophilus Vyshniovski and Jozef Kapushcinski ,
the memorial plates for
Francishek Jan Smolka,
and many other Poles ...
Some polish people would say: "This can not be compared how much damage had been done to us by Germans this would be the reflex of the revenge ..."
First of all tombstones from the German cemeteries of Wroclaw were used to rebuild the city in 1945, and then in the 1960s and 70s.
Secondly, if we use the argument "reflex of revenge", then even the smallest stone should not remain in Lviv’ places where there are still "Polish" Catholic churches - from revenge for hundreds of destroyed Orthodox churches in the pre-war Polish state.The Orthodox Church in Kryliv was destroyed in 1938
Orthodox Church in the village of Pregorile - destroyed in 1938
Now imagine that there would be no Polish Eagles Cemetery in Lviv. Imagine that Ukrainians on a voluntary basis would created a good recreation area and recreation park on the spot, playgrounds, a place for chamber concerts, etc. ... Let's imagine that there would be no Polish streets and Polish monuments in Lviv. The authorities and society would have decided together that the Polish memory places and any other symbols reminiscent of Polish domination in the Ukrainian lands must be destroyed ... They would do so by taking an example of the Poles and their actions in the Germanic territories ... Maybe it would be the best solution so there would be no problems with Polish insolence and constant accusations that the Poles must throw in their faces, standing in front of the mirror!
Already a non-existent Ukrainian village Yasonka. During the operation "Wisla" the Polish authorities evicted from it about 300 inhabitants. In the photographs one of the courtyards, covered with broken crosses and tombstones from the Ukrainian cemetery, and the cemetery was destroyed, April 1983
Do not worry, it's just fantasy. Nothing like this could be happened, because Ukrainians are not barbarians, they respect the dead, even those who were their enemies. Maybe they do not engage in maintaining other people's graves, but they do not discourage them. Think about it, dear Poles, when you can still think sensibly, on your own and without prejudice.
