Witkowice Battle

On 17th and 18th September1939, the biggest battle of the year was fought on the fields near the Bzura river. Witkowice was the spot where Polish soldiers forded a river fighting with hundreds of German planes and a panzer division. Even today you can see very clearly: the trench lines, shooting positions and craters. In the place where the fording took place you will find an unusual monument in memory of the heroic soldiers.
