On February 1 1945, Poland’s General Anders reproached Winston Churchill for not adhering to the English guarantees (to defend Poland’s independence). He asked the unelected British Prime Minister. ‘What shall we say to our soldiers?  Soviet Russia is now confiscating half of our territory and wants the remaining part of Poland to be managed according to her own fashion.  We know from experience where that leads.’   

Britain’s unelected premier Winston Churchill replied: ‘You yourself are to blame for that. We did not guarantee your eastern frontiers.  Today we have enough soldiers and do not need your aid.  You can remove your divisions.  We are not using them anymore.’

General Anders replied: ‘You did not say that during the last few years.’

Afterwards, Churchill conceded that Poland was cynically used to provide Britain with the justification for declaring war on Germany.

On occasion of the Cursed Soldiers National Remembrance Day (March 1, 2021), Polish President Andrzej Duda visited the Warsaw villa in which victims of communist terror were tortured. Duda said that despite the end of the Second World War and the defeat of Germany, the Cursed Soldiers were unconvinced of a Poland that was a truly independent country.

‘The Cursed Soldiers did not accept the fact that there was Soviet occupation in Poland. Therefore, they did not lay down their arms and decided instead to fight for a free, sovereign and independent Poland until they succeeded or died,’ Duda stated.

The president noted that according to historians the second Polish underground was comprised of over 300,000 people. Duda explained that many suffered torture and death at the hands of Soviet oppressors and paid the ultimate price for their desire for an independent Poland.

As part of commemorating the Cursed Soldiers, the president visited the ‘Willa Jasny Dom’ (bright house villa) in Warsaw which was the former headquarters of the communist’s military secret service, Main Directorate of Military Information. Unbeknown to the people living around the building, communist special services imprisoned and tortured Polish underground members in the villa. Afterwards, the prisoners would be transported elsewhere.

Signs and messages written on the walls inside the villa by the prisoners still linger to this day. ‘These inscriptions will be a testimony to those days, that suffering and that tragedy; a desperate ‘Jesus save me’, names, crosses, dates and calendars,’ the president said.

The President’s Chancellery Twitter account shared photos of the president’s visit to the prison: ‘President Duda: Thank you for the sensitivity which is shown to places such as this one and symbols of memory, so that they may survive until future generations and so that the memory of heroes, of the Cursed Soldiers and their devotion to the fatherland will never die. Just as Poland has not yet perished, so long as we live.’

The Cursed Soldiers is the name given to the members of Polish underground anti-Soviet and anti-communist movements which fought the Soviet occupation of Poland following the defeat of Nazi Germany. The Cursed Soldiers continued their underground struggle well into the 1950s and were viciously persecuted by communist authorities.
