Poland marks 80th anniversary of start of World War Two

From the website of The President of The Republic of Poland:


Speaking at observances marking the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII in Wielun, central Poland, on Sunday, President Andrzej Duda stressed that this terrible war started with an act of barbarity, an attack against common people.

Present at the observances was also German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

The first bombs of WWII were dropped on September 1, 1939, on the town of Wielun. The Luftwaffe bombings started at 4:40 a.m. Before the war, Wielun had around 16,000 residents and was situated only 21 kilometres away from the German border. The first bombs killed 32 people, all patients and staff of the local hospital.

"This was the Second World War, which ravaged the world, which will never be forgotten since we must never forget it. We must never forget it even when all the eyewitnesses are gone," he said.
