The Silesian Insurgents' Monument in Katowice, southern Poland, is a monument to those who took part in the three Silesian Uprisings of 1919, 1920 and 1921, which aimed to make the region of Upper Silesia part of the newly independent Polish state. The monument was unveiled on 1 September 1967, and was designed by sculptor Gustaw Zemła and architect Wojciech Zabłocki. The wings symbolize the three uprisings, and the names of places where battles were fought are etched on the vertical slopes. The monument was funded by the people of Warsaw for Upper Silesia.

  • Monumental monument slightly away (500 metres) from the center of Katowice. Located near the Centre, close to the art gallery at the roundabout. Erected in 1967 in memory of the uprisings of Poles against the German authorities in 1919-1921. Three "wings" to symbolize the uprising 3. Very monumental!
