In 2016 the Warsaw Rising Museum received as a donation a heartbreaking diary by Włodzimierz Cegłowski "Sońka" who perished #OTD in 1944. When you go through the pages of this simple, beautiful, chaotically written but powerful in its impact testimony of the #warsawrising1944, you cannot escape the feeling that war takes it all. Destroys your life and tears down to foundation anything you hold so dear.
Sońka was writing it to his girlfriend - Zosia, whom he adressed in the sweetest way possible... One sees how much he longed for their reunion. Which never happened...
Zosia never got married. An old lady - she died a few months before the diary was to be handed over to her.
In one of the photos attached, he's with his family. His brother also persihed in #WW2 and the story of their family deserves to be a book.
Would there be a library to find free space for all #WW2 testimonies and memories of the devastating crimes by Germans and Soviets?...
