September eleven remembered in Poland
Created: Tuesday, September 11. 2007
Candles will burn again on the symbolic graves of those from the Podlasie Region in Poland who perished in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre six years ago.
Among them were Lukasz Milewski from Suwalki and Dorota Kopiczko from Augustow.
In the Suwalki cementary, there is a tombstone dedicated to the two who died, which resembles the Twin Towers joined by a crucifix, where candles are lit up on every September 11.
The Christ the King Chapel in Suwałki is dedicated to Lukasz and the church bell is named after him.
A mass is held in his honour Suwalki on every anniversary of the tragedy. Lukasz Milewski was 21 years old.
His body was one of many never identified.
Friends and family will also gather around the symbolic grave of Dorota Kopiczko from Augustów who perished on the same day. Dorota and Łukasz are also among the six names engraved on the commemorative plaque in Warsaw dedicated to the New York attack victims.
The message on the plaque reads: "In honour of the Poles who lost their lives on that day".
In Poznan firemen will commemorate the lives of 300 of their American colleagues who then died while on a rescue mission.
A commemorative assembly will also be held by young people from in the town of Kalisz and surrounding areas.
They will burn candles for the 9/11 victims in a wood clearing by the obelisks near the village of Szwacin.
Six years ago, on September 11 two passenger planes hit the World Trade Centre killing more than 2700 people.
Good people in a country several thousand miles away commemorate the day and one of our democratic presidential candidates does not!
Thanks for the pics. Poland, always our friend. I’m pleased to see their tributes. So sad that many places are downplaying memorials here.
Kochamy Polske (We love Poland)
We sure do. God bless ‘em.
What a beautiful memorial. The Poles have proven themselves to be true allies of the United States since the 1980's.
Thank you, Poland!
Thank you, Poland!
Thank you for the post Lizol. It’s good, as always, to hear from you.
They despise the schemes of leftists, having suffered mightily.
They like America and Americans....perhaps more than anyone else in Europe. Almost alone among Europeans, in fact.
God bless Poland!
They really know what freedom is and what matters.
Compare and contrast how our good friends the Pols responded/respond to 9-11 with how the jihadist palescumians did/do: http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=26994_Palestinians_Party_on_September_11&only
You have to love these Poles ... our true friends.
The “added” incident plaques sure spell out the reality of the situation. It seems clear that the Poles will be adding more of those to the monument.
