The first monument commemorates the Silent Unseen soldiers.

In the memory of the 316 Silent Unseen parachutists, the Home Army soldiers who sacrificed their lives for You, Homeland.
On the obelisk's walls names and nicknames of the parachutists and the badge of the Silent Unseen soldiers together with a parachute were imprinted.


The second monument is devoted to the Hungarian soldiers.
On the obelisk there is such an inscription:
In the memory of the Hungarian Honveds who used to transport weapons and munition for the Home Army soldiers, took care of the wounded and helped the Polish people during the Warsaw Uprising 1944.
We feel proud, recalling those Hungarian heroes who sacrificed their lives, having joined the insurgents.
