The biggest issue now in Poland and also (meaby in Germany?) is since publication 1 of September 2022 mentioned earlier The Report on the losses sustained by Poland as a result of German aggression and occupation During the second World War 1939-1945. Now in Poland is discussion about how much we lost thanks to German occupation and how that's is now related with German willingness to lead EU in case of War in Ukraine.

You can now also read this report in English version https://straty-wojenne.pl/ look on right side of webpage

all three volumes are available there and if someone of you will be interested to read this research publication.

Last issues related to 1-st of September 1939

In last week on Westerplatte was a funeral of 10 defenders they were found a few years ago during archaeological excavations buried on battlefield so now after 83 years they lay on proper military burial place created there. They were lost in battle there through whole time of Polish People Republic and then 30 years of III Polish Republic and none was interested to check former battlefield on peninsula .

https://www-prezydent-pl.translate.g..._x_tr_pto=wapp
google translated to English but is possible see a video from that event and photos

Here is also a Movie from 1967 "Westerplatte"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msuJXKm1clw dialogues are in Polish but if you skip to 00:17:00 you can see first fight and beginning of WWII. at 00:56:22 is a scene where defenders hear bells from Gdańsk Cathedral and German Parade in city centre.

This Parade is presented in previous movie from 1958 "Wolne miasto" (Free City) about defenders of Polish Post office in Danzig city centre look at 01:23:33 . Fights around Post office are presented at 01:05:39 even SS ADGZ is recreated.
