THE DISMANTLING OF THE MONUMENT TO GENERAL KAROL “WALTER” SVERCHEVSKY BEGAN
Removal occurs in connection with the decommunication law. It is reported by Upmp.news with reference to Polish Radio.
In the area of Yablonka in Podkarpackie region, the dismantling of the monument to General Karol “Walter” Sverchevsky began.
“Dismantling takes place on behalf of the management of the State Forests within the framework of decomunization. According to the decomunization law, removing this object is the responsibility of the landowner,” says Voitsekh Glushko from the Baligrod State Forest Division.
“We do not deal with historical politics and the assessment of the biography of the general. The INM of Poland has already spoken on this issue. This monument is an object that glorifies the previous system. For us, the assessment of INM is unrelenting.”
Several dozen of people gathered near the monument to General Sverchevsky. This is a historic moment – both opponents and supporters of dismantling say:
“I came from sentimental drives. I was born here. They should put a sign on the monument that he was a betrayer.”
“It will not be possible to erase this, and we should not get rid of such things. It’s about the fact that such a person should not have a monument.”
Dismantling of the monument will last until March 9, the cost of works – 50 thousand zlotys.
