Rising From The Ashes: The Rebuilding of Warsaw Post World War II

Sunday, October 18, 2015 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

By 1939, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party were intent on razing Warsaw as part of the Pabst Plan to create a future “German” Town. By the time of Warsaw’s liberation in January of 1945 from German occupation, the Wermacht had destroyed 85% of the city.

Margaret Guzek, writer and preservationist, discusses the events leading up to the destruction of Warsaw and the Polish community’s meticulous post-war reconstruction, which includes the recognition of Warsaw’s restoration of its historic quarters as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
