Will Poles shame the New York Times into memorizing Warsaw Uprising?

It's a shame that the New York Times, America's most recognized newspaper in the world, is able to monetize on the greatest tragedy in Poland's history. But, apparently Poles begin to think that it's the only way for the NYT to mention the Warsaw Uprising, and hopefully show it in good light, without confusing it with Warsaw Getto Uprising. The quick Google search shows that last time NYT spent any time on that event was in 2004, on the 60th anniversary. 

Today, July 28th, Mr. Wieslaw Wlodarski, Founder and President of the FoodCare Group placed a full page add in the New York Times commemorating the Warsaw Uprising. The ad reminds the NYT readers (and editors) that on August 1st, 1944,  the Polish Home Army, made up of 50,000 men, women and children organized a second uprising in the Polish capital city, after Getto Uprising of April 1943, to eject evil German regime from the capital.
