Day 3 Warsaw Rising Museum and Blessed Jerzy Popiełuszko

Today we visited the Warsaw Rising Museum. The museum is very impressive with numerous artifacts that show the determination of the Polish people in Warsaw during an incredibly difficult time in their history where they were invaded from Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.  I found a video from the museum in English that will provide an overview of what we experienced today. You can watch that here.   Here are some photos from our visit including the chapel where we stopped and said a prayer for all of the victims. I will try and provide a reflection of some thoughts that I had throughout the day at a later time. Unfortunately, we are on a pretty tight schedule today and I only have a few minutes for this blog entry.  After our visit to the Warsaw Rising Museum we went to a beautiful park where they have a statue dedicated to Frédéric Chopin.
