10 Maria Grzegorzewska street - Ursynów
The mural painting was situated on the outer side of the fence in the area of the Families Alliance School named after John Paul II in 10 Maria Grzegorzewska street.
The mural was painted by the schoolkids and then given a title, 1944 - Co czujesz gdy twoje miasto płonie? (1944 - what are your feelings when your city is on fire?). It consists of numerous motifs connected with the Warsaw Uprising.
In the beginning of the Warsaw Uprising 1944 the present-day Ursynów district witnessed the insurgent units retreating in the direction of Kabaty Woods, having unsuccessfully attacked the Raceway. Soldiers of the Home Army light-cavalrymen regiment and the "Jeleń" unit of the Home Army 7th Lublin Uhlan Regiment who had been attacking the Royal Łazienki Garden were also retreating that way. In the middle of August 1944 rearmed insurgent units of so-called "Grzymała" group tried to break through from the Kabaty Woods to Sadyba.
