70th Anniversary of Warsaw Uprising. We remember.

A little context for those who don’t know….

On August 1, 1944 the poorly armed Polish Home Army rose up against the Nazis and reclaimed Warsaw.  With almost no help from the Allied Powers, they held the city for sixty three days before they were forced to surrender.  After the Nazis recaptured Warsaw, they razed the city and deported the entire civilian population.  Most of the civilian population was released, but a significant minority was deported to the death camps.  

The art above is a reinterpretation of one of the most iconic images of the Warsaw Uprising- Eugeniusza Lokajskiego’s photo of Różyczka Goździewska (d. 1989), a little girl who volunteered at a Warsaw field hospital.  

The Warsaw Uprising is not the same thing as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.  The Warsaw Ghetto uprising took place in 1943, not 1944.

Men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. This is not a radical concept, and yet apparently it is. Thanks to the magic of technology, it’s literally effortless to look up the definition of “feminism” and learn about it. It is literally effortless to educate oneself about gender equality … In 2014, if you’re still confused about what Feminism is, you’re deliberately not learning. You’re deliberately choosing to remain uneducated and oblivious. You are actively choosing to be an asshole.

You don’t have to be a parent to understand the horror of walking into a room to discover that the baby crawled out of his crib and onto that pottery wheel you forgot to turn off.  And while the baby is spinning around and around, the dog is sitting there all calm, like a person, gently using his paws to fashion the baby’s soft cartilage head into something a little more modern.  It might be the classic tale of bad parenting, but let’s see where the dog is going with this.
