People hold flares and Polish flags during the so-called “W Hour” as they celebrate the 76th Anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising on Saturday. The Warsaw Uprising, considered the largest urban battle of WWII, was organized by the underground Polish resistance as an attempt to liberate the capital from Nazi occupation. The mission killed over 150,000 citizens, and 90% of Warsaw was destroyed. The march has been highly controversial, as banned far-right symbols have been seen during the event in previous years. This year, Warsaw Uprising survivors signed a letter to the mayor of Warsaw, Rafal Trzaskowski, requesting a ban on the march.
