Very beautiful statue, and reminded me of the one in Dublin, paying tribute to the victims of the great famine, in Ireland. This statue means so much to the people in Gdynia. Go to the Emigration Museum, if you are interested in this topic.

This monument is situated near the Central Railway station in Gdynia. It shows how sad and difficult was the time of Second World War... the lonely dog, sitting and waiting for his master had stolen y heart

Leaving Gdynia ourselves, we couldn't resist a last glance at the amazing memorial of deported families, most of whom were travelling to their deaths.
