Zamość monuments

There are not many monuments in Zamość. Even Jan Zamoyski had to wait for a monument for many years although attempts to erect one started between the two wars. Since the authorities of Polish People’s Republic were not very enthusiastic about the military achievements of AK (The Home Army) and BCH (The Peasant Battalions), soldiers belonging to these units have received their monuments only recently. Apart from the monuments described below and located in the Old Town and its vicinity there are also a few others, such as “Anioł śmierci” (“The Angel of Death”), a work by an artist from Zamość Jerzy Hycki. The monuments stands on the corner of Piłsudskiego and Okrzei Streets, at the site of a former Nazi camp for displaced inhabitants of Zamość Region. There is also a monument to Dzieci Zamojszczyzny (Children of Zamość Region), which stands in the Parish Cemetery in Peowiaków Street, monuments to Soviet soldiers in Szwedzka and Śląska Streets and a monument to “Żydom Zamościa Ofiarom Faszyzmu Hitlerowskiego” (“The Jews of Zamość – Victims of Nazism”), which stands in Prosta Street.
