The author, quoting various opinions and drawing on very personal experiences, polemicizes with the thesis that the Warsaw Uprising was admirable. He shares the view held by those who - appreciating the heroism of the insurgents - all the same noticed the tragedy of the situation: even though the insurgents were excellent, selfless and brave fighters, the uprising as such cannot be called excellent. The Uprising claimed an unimaginable toll of unnecessary victims, brought terrible suffering to all the inhabitants of the city, ruined the cultural heritage of several centuries and ended with an atrocious destruction of Warsaw. The Warsaw Uprising is overgrown with myths, but in the recent history of the Polish nation it was a particularly tragic event.
