The liberation of Warsaw – a talk by Dr A. Richie

Date: 10-02-2021 Hour: 19:00

Event place: online

Dr Alexandra Richie will talk about the events that occurred between the end of the Warsaw Uprising and the “liberation” of the city by Russian troops in January 1945, which in reality marked the beginning of another dark chapter in Poland’s history. The Vistula–Oder Offensive was a Red Army operation in January 1945.

The army made a major advance into German-held territory, capturing Kraków, Warsaw and Poznań. The Red Army had built up their strength around a number of key bridgeheads, with two fronts commanded by Marshal Georgy Zhukov and Marshal Ivan Konev. This advance followed others that took place after the Warsaw Uprising.

WHEN: February 10th, 7pm (UK time)
