Free to visit and photograph, located in an easily accessible public street. A short walk from the old town. Well worth a visit as photographs aren't as impactive as the real thing which is a large bronze statue showing a pile of religious symbols on a railway cart, set on tracks with sleepers behind the tracks. Each sleeper shows the name of a town or locale from which Polish citizens were deported and in the Soviet Union, where they suffered or died. In particular this honours those deported to labour camps in Siberia (after the Soviet invasion of Poland), and the victims of the Katyn massacre.The statue also displays symbols of Polish Cross of Valour and Polish military eagle. An amazing sculpture which ensures that we don't forget.

Apparently there is an annual memorial ceremony is held here on 17 September.

Such momument reminds us how oppresive the totalitarian regimes may be. It really sad to know that so many people where killed and humilitated such way.

Unveiled on the 17th September 1995 on the 56th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939, this large bronze memorial is dedicated to all the victims of Soviet aggression, particularly Poles who were deported to labour camps in Siberia. The monument takes the form of an open flatbed railway carriage which contains multiple crosses & other religious symbols. Each railway sleeper carries the names of places the victims would have been deported from & the names of the places they were deported to in order to become slave labour for the Soviet regime. The railway sleepers also feature sculpted hands of varying sizes. It really is a moving site.

This is not in right in the middle of town, so you might not run upon it unless you look for it. I highly recommend you do. The monument depicts a bronze railway leading to a pile of religious symbols: Catholic, Jewish, Muslim. It symbolizes the dead in the East, victims of Soviet aggression during WW2 and on later massacres. It effectively captures the essence of the drama these people went through. Again, I recommend you take a moment to see this monument. It's really moving.

Right in the middle of a four lane street, directly across from an Ibis, this monument was made to remember the victims of the Soviet Union in Poland.

it is a very interesting concept - a wagon filled with crosses (and an occasional Star of David) that would decorate the graves of the dead. However, those victims do not have graves for the crosses to decorate.

Poignant memorial to the barbaric excesses of totalitarian communist rule of Poland. As a local shop says "red is bad". Here's to a free democratic Poland!

A moving monument attributed to the 1.5 million Poles deported to Siberia by the Russians. Many didnt come back. Railway signifies the deportation. Not much information there but its a tragic story of Poles war experience.
