Warsaw Uprising 1944: Part One
Stefan Morawski, Maciej Bańkowski
Selected Frayed Memories (Aug. 2–Sept. 6, 1944)
Recalling his Warsaw Uprising days after years and from a considerable distance, Morawski reflects on human behavior during the fighting and the degree to which it was justified, simultaneously wondering whether humans had the right to take the lives of other humans. He also dwells on the erroneousness of memories recalled after years. The text is full of critical reflection on the Uprising and human attitudes during the battles.
