Funny little statue just outside the Old Town walls. Hard to find except for it was always attended by a few people taking pictures.

Simple but extremely moving. Spend some time considering the effect of war on the innocents forced to fight adults' battles.

The Statue of the Little Insurgent is worth the walk. A remembrance of the children who helped aid the resistance in WW11.

Walk round the Old Town city walls and take in the sights! It is easy to do and you can stop for a drink or buy an ice cream from one of the stalls.

War is an ugly thing. This memorial to the many Polish youngsters who gave their lives fighting to overcome their Nazi invaders and occupiers. It is testimony to the courage and bravery of the country's youth. God bless, may you rest in peace!

Just down from the main square you will find the statue. It's in honor of the children that fought during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944.
