The Monument to the Little Insurgent of 1944 was designed by J. Januszkiewicz for the scouts who took part in the Uprising of 1944 in Warsaw. It is a statue of a little boy dressed in a soldier’s uniform which is way too big for him. It commemorates all brave children that were actively involved in the fighting and tragically lost their lives. Even children between 11 and 14 years of age took part and among the best-known auxiliary troops was the Scouting Postal Service.
The Monument was funded by Polish scouts and was unveiled on October 1st, 1983, by a scout insurgent, Jerzy Swiderski, now a cardiologist, during the Uprising a 14-year old runner of the Home Army’s "Gustaw" Battalion, nicknamed "Lubicz".
