The Battle Scars of Warsaw 🇵🇱 [Kult America]

2693 ratings | 102953 views
Perhaps one of the most eerie features of Warsaw Poland, is that its battle scars have gone untouched in many places. In this episode of Kult America, I explored the city to find what WW2 artefacts have remained, and in some cases are overlooked. We saw a bullet ridden wall, a hole in the sky which use to be someones kitchen, a bombed water tower, and bunkers on a train platform. This experience was a lot to take in, its amazing how casually the world goes on in light of such obvious evidence of war.

What, you didnt go to old battlefields or rock quarries as a teen to make out or get it on? I'm talking here in the USA, cause we sure did. And the south for many many many years bore the scars of the civil war, some parts still do. You need to not be sad or shocked or abhorred at these sights, you should feel your chest swelling with pride and admiration for the people of nazi-era Warsaw. They were tough people who took the fight to the germans when no one else would. They would rather die than submit. That's something to be proud of.

Przecież to zwykły Tobruk-Stand, jeden z najmniejszych bunkrów budowanych przez Niemców w czasie okupacji. W całej Polsce są ich jeszcze tysiące. Co ciekawe, obiekty takie okazały się być jednymi z najlepszych. Relacja koszt-efekt była tu bardzo korzystna. Bardzo istotną cechą był brak posiadania pionowej strzelnicy, zamiast niej jest w stropie właz z pierścieniem na karabin maszynowy. Dlatego strzelec po wykonaniu serii mógł całkowicie się schować w ukryciu a ponad linię ziemi nie wystawał żaden element tego obiektu. Tanie i skuteczne. Ich nazwa pochodzi od Tobruku gdzie pierwszy raz zostały zastosowane na szeroką skalę i zdały egzamin celująco.

Because of the massive numbers of books, movies, and documentaries, Americans know that millions of Jews, including 3 million Polish Jews, were killed during World War II. Sadly, most are unaware of the 3 million Polish Christians who perished. Poland was the only occupied country that did not officially collaborate with the Nazis. Yet, there is widespread ignorance that many thousand of Poles risked their lives and the lives of their families to aid Jews or that Polish armed forces fought in virtually every European theater of war including D-Day and the Battle of Britain. Despite their help in defeating Germany, Poles received no real assistance from the allies during the Warsaw uprising or when the Soviets assumed control of Poland. Long live a free and prosperous Poland.

Ja jako dziecko obserwujac moje otocznie, miasto Wroclaw na poczatku lat 80tych mozna bylo miec wrazenie, ze wojna zakonczyla sie jakies 10 lat wczesniej. Wiele kanienic mialo uciekte boki po sasiedniej zburzonej kanienicy i moza bylo zobaczyc jak przed wojna Niemcy mieli pomalowane pokoje czy lazienki oraz te XIX wieczne bogate zdobienia... Dawne bogactwo i codziennosc ktore pozostalo tylko wspomieniem po koszmarze wojny. Tego sie nie zapomni do smierci.

Moja babcia, która przeżyła wojnę mówiła "hitlerowców" :) I dlatego może ja nigdy nie miałam "focha" do Niemców jako takich :) Jasne, że w większości to byli Niemcy, ale w każdym kraju jest jakaś odmiana nacjonałów. Po co podkręcać te przygraniczne narodowe spory, gdy się jest w Unii - myślę, że gdzie dwu się bije tam trzeci korzysta :) Nazistowskie, hitlerowskie czy niemieckie (np obozy), wszystko to dla mnie jest słuszną nazwą, ale na szczęście historyczną.

Back in the 60s and 70s when Iraq was safe and Iraqis mostly rich, Poland was one of the favorite travel destinations to spend holidays in, if not the most favorite, old generation Iraqis speak nothing but warm and kind words about Poles and their kindness and hospitality! Now look at the comments, just one Iraqi guy and the amount of hate is unbelievable! Makes you wonder if Polish people were only acting nice because we had money back then or communist Poland was just a nicer country with kinder people than this Poland! The irony is, this guy has escaped from the same people you nationalistic Christians hate so much, he mentioned al-qaeda, but you go ahead and put all "muslims" in the same basket, especially this guy, who married a heathen Polish girl and is assimilating to the society, he must be a "practicing" muslim for sure!

Really?! You really think Polskies choose to live under Jewish cockroaches? They didn't, neither did Ruskies but surprise! The leaders were Jews in Russia too during those days. Jews have always loved power, they have always found a way to gain power in countries they are not from. A good example is Putin, he has Jews in his family tree.

Oh everybody knows it. As an American soldier I was on a tour in a German Cathedral when they started guilt-tripping about the American bombing and then stopped the speech and asked what I was snorting, and rolling my eyes about and trying to hold back a chuckle. I told them that my family had been from Warsaw and only I was born in the USA. They moved on to another topic in the tour after that... My grandparents were also forced labor. My grandmother was Jewish but had been living as a fugitive under the protection of my grandfather for a few months before they were arrested and the Germans never figured out who she was.
California Girl (1 year ago)
Hitler had plan to completely destroy Warsaw, and to eliminate it from the face of the earth. This is the crime that has been committed by Germans during WWII that nobody talks about in the States. The only concern is that Jews were murdered. Yet during WWII 6 Million Poles were killed, many in concentration camps. My uncle Kazimerz Sklad was forced labor in Germany (he was chemical engineer), he came back to Poland in 1945 only to die from tuberculosis, my father Kazimierz Krawczynski was officer in Polish Army and was caught by the German Army on October 2, 1939 and during war he spent 5.5 years at the offlag (prison camp for officers of Polish Army) in Murnau. He survived by eating rotten potatoes skins thrown out by German guards as not good enough for their dogs. His brother Stanislaw Krawczynski who was medical doctor and congressman in Poland representing Sandomierz was murdered by Germans as a hostage and was buried in mass grave with the bodies of other Polish people murdered by Germans in Sandomierz in 1940. My mother Janina Krawczynska (Sklad) was member of Home Army (Armia Krajowa) and during war worked as a Sanitariuszka at Malta Hospital in Warsaw. After war Russians sent one of my uncles Stanislaw Sklad to Syberia for being member of AK, and another Stanislaw Wiacek was imprisoned by Russians for being leader of the underground Polish partisan group Jedrusie fighting Germans in Swietokrzyskie Mountains during the war. This is very tragic Polish history. Poland, while being a powerful country in Europe in 17 century (from Baltic to Black Sea), lost its independence starting in 1776 and did not recovered it until 1918. WWII was a horrific time in Poland.

Wow! I actually live in Warsaw my whole life and even I, a citizen of Poland didn't noticed things like that. Esoecially that water tower. And my school used to be in a building with bullet holes, in middle of old Warsaw Getto. This school really shows how modern city is using old buildings. If you wonder it is at Twarda 8/12 at center, near Palace of Culture. Great job showing Poland to forgeins.

Hi, I just found your channel and decided to watch all the episodes. Sounds like you're really touched with the places that refer to WW II. From other episodes I saw that you made it to Ukraine and Subcarpathia - south-east part of Poland - too. I hope you took a chance to see how beautiful city Przemyśl is. Check out WW I Przemyśl Fortress. There is also a mysterious history of San Rideau Fortress in Bolestraszyce and two soldiers that kept living inside blown up complex for years. This places can be literally explored. Fortress Duńkowiczki is well accessible too!

I wonder, why did you so meticulously censored naming the Germans for what they did ? Even if Bartek told you "The Germans built such bunkers all over Europe", you translated it to "Nazis". Not Nazi, but German. The German army acting on behalf of the German Reich.
8digitPDX (1 year ago)
It was actually the other way around. Poles would help regular German military deserters escape through various smuggling routes to neutral areas, or just remote areas. SS Deserters, if identified as such, were often as not just murdered by one side or the other. Part of the reason SS officers had their men conduct very public atrocities was to make the local population hate them enough that SS personnel were not going to be given any leniency or assistance if they were attempting to desert. They lived under a death sentence either way.
kpharck (1 year ago)
This is still not a reason to falsify the translation.
JokerHut (1 year ago)
Because not all Germans were bad, mostly Nazis. It was more common for a Wehrmacht soldier to help a Pole than an SS officer, and the SS were straight up Nazis

You maybe know now since it has been a year since you made this video.  One of the most facinating war relics in Warsaw is the apartment building in the city center which stands unrestored.  You can even find pieces of the ghetto wall.  One part I found in the center had some memorials.  There is also the large Bank Polski which is also a bombed out relic.  I loved this video you did.  You showed me things I haven't seen yet in Warsaw.  Still, there is enough for you to show for a second video.  Check out the Pasta? building also!  If I remember it correctly.  Warsaw is facinating!

Ryan, the old tenement house is located on ul. Prozna. Check out Pawiat Prison on ul Dzielna. There is a lot of history there for your channel. The ghetto wall I found is in a courtyard at ul. Sienna 55. I pulled out my old copy of Warsaw in Your Pocket which is a free guide available at most quality hotels. It is even for sale at some bookstores and kiosks. It is full of detailed information that the typical tour guide book does not have. Keep up the good work. Next trip for you, Wilno!

And many stories from just 1 generation ago, from massive bombing, deportation etc. One important thing is that the Netherlands is very thankful for the Polish contribution to Operation Market Garden (witch was falsely blamed by the English General Montgomery for its failing) and the Dutch Liberation!
LongandWeirdName (2 years ago)
We don't hide our battle scars. We wear them with pride. Places like the water tower or the bullet holes in the walls are a reminder of what happened and what should never be allowed to happen again. Those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it. We keep those places to, in a way, keep the memories of previous generations alive and say "never again". And as for the "bringing girls to places like this" thing... The concept of good would be meaningless without the concept of evil. Experiencing these spots makes happy moments more intense. Life isn't just joy. It shouldn't be. There's a time for happiness and a time for quiet contemplation. I know of no easier way than bringing them to places like that to remind them of their own mortality, to make them think about how lucky they are to live in a time of peace, and to make them want to appreciate life more.

Oczywiście, nie tak jak w państwach do niego włączonych, ale Polacy nic nie znaczyli. Po prostu byli. Następnie (1989) nastąpiło uwolnienie się od wpływów Rosji, jednakże co Polacy wiedzieli o demokracji? Nic. Dlatego system demokratyczny w naszym kraju leży i kwiczy.

That grafitti was considered so important to maintaining the morale of the people living in occupied Warsaw that an entire organization sprung up that dealt exclusively with "small sabotage",such as painting grafitti, hanging up propaganda posters, vandalizing German signs, breaking windows in homes of volksdeutsche, etc. It was a structured and organized effort, not just spontaneous expressions of defiance. They'd also defy the Nazis on dates of Polish national holidays, such as the 3rd of May, and clandestinely decorate the city with Polish flags. That was an incredibly dangerous job because of the curfew.

Warsaw hisory alone can keep you busy for months (I assume you have been to the upraising museum), but there is so much more in Poland. Some places have been gained during border changes, some are genuinlely polish, and about some you can't really tell. When you want to take a break from Warsaw I recommend: - The Eagles' nests trail - The Riese complex - The MRU - The castles in Lower Silesia (Chojnik, Bolków, Świny, Grodno, Grodziec, Czocha, Książ, and few others - http://www.zamkipolskie.com/mapa/dolnyslask/mapa1.html ) - The Wolfshanze - Old City in Kraków - Aushwitz (this will be a tough one if even an old water tower moved you). P.S. In most of those plces you'll need a good flash light much more than an umbrella ;)

Dude, you seemed really puzzled about how violent the history of Warsaw is, and you mentioned you couldn't imagine how cruel one has to be to do such a horrible things, but you as an American should bear in mind the cruelty of your country. Two words are enough here: Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Hundreds of thousands innocent citizens, who didn't expect anything got burnt not even to ashes, not to mention another thousands of survivors who suffered from radiation sickness and other diseases. I'm gonna drop a quote here: "Ain't war hell?"
Andy Wood (2 years ago)
+Grzybo93 Japanese military murdered over 10 million people, most likely 6 million Chinese, Taiwanese, Singaporeans, Malaysians, Indonesians, Koreans, Filipinos and Indochinese, among others, including Western prisoners of war. According to Rummel, "This democide [i.e., death by government] was due to a morally bankrupt political and military strategy, military expediency and custom, and national culture." According to Rummel, in China alone, during 1937–45, approximately 3.9 million Chinese were killed, mostly civilians, as a direct result of the Japanese operations and 10.2 million in the course of the war. The most infamous incident during this period was the Nanking Massacre of 1937–38, when, according to the findings of the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, the Japanese Army massacred as many as 300,000 civilians and prisoners of war, although the accepted figure is somewhere in the hundreds of thousands.

you got the right point that we, the poles, are used to war and tragedy. our land and our people saw so many conflicts, destruction and oppression that it became part of our everyday life. and Warsaw was not the only city destroyed in more than 50%. thank you for showing this to your countrymen.

Ryan, odwiedź jakiś obóz koncentracyjny np. Aushwitz.. To będzie niezłe wyzwanie emocjonalne dla Ciebie! Polecam również wybrać się do Wizny gdzie 360 żołnierzy broniło się przed 42 tys. Niemców którzy byli wspierani przez lotnictwo oraz 350 czołgów. Bronili się 4 dni.

Tak. Wszystko pięknie tylko dlaczego Amerykanie są zapatrzeni w siebie ucząc swoje dzieci tylko Amerykańskiej Historii a o Europie niewiele wiedza a potem wychodzą takie kwiatki, że Amerykański Prezydent palnie porażającą głupotę mówiąc "Polskie obozy śmierci, Polskie obozy karne" (mówię tu o wypowiedzi Prezydenta Obamy o Obozie Auschwitz: http://wyborcza.pl/1,76842,11825268,Obama_zaluje_slow_o_polskim_obozie_smierci.html

Im happy to see, that peoples from other countries are interested in Polish history.. If i can propose, you can do a movie about: Nazi's Death Camps.. Most of people says that is "Polish death camps". It's frustrating, because actually, the Nazis killed in camps like "Oświęcim" an enormous number of Jews and Poles..

I'm happy you showed these places, your narrative is amazing. You're doing a good job! Someone writed about visting Auschwitz - I think you could make a great (and really sad) video there.

Ryan Polish country has more places like this not only Warsaw, if you have chance go visit cities around Warsaw you will see a lot of history and a lot of things that happen.
