Mermaid Monument
The monument made of bronze presents a young boy soldier wearing oversized helmet and clutching a Sten gun. It symbolises the children who served as messengers and who fought during the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. On the wall behind the monument words of a popuar song from the period are engraved: ‘Warsaw children will go off to fight, we will, our capital, shed blood over every stone.'
