hi:
1. about the wikipedia site: i allready saw it. what i'm looking for is famous texts about these events. like literature texts writen about it (poems, speechs made by the rebels etc). a text that will symbolize the uprisings.

2. i didn't understand what's the conection to david ben-gurion's speech.

thanks!

Hello
the title of the poem is "the colonel's death" I advice you to look for the professional translation otherwise you won't be able to fully appreciate the masterpiece

but that's just a suggestion:)

Fisz is American...

Here are some paintings If you want...



Patrol powstaƄczy by Maksymilian Gierymski - about January uprising.



Olszynka Grochowska by Wojciech Kossak - November uprising.

Poems are very hard to translate, maybe someome will translate more or less but you need to open a new topic in a translation section.

thank you everyone!
i found someone who translated the Mickiewicz poem for me. it is great!
1. is Emilia Platter a polish hero (the poem says she is from Lithuania). i know the two countries were united at that time, but is Emilia Platter considered today to be a polish hero?

2. are there any poems about the 1864 January uprising?
again, thank you very much! you are so nice!

There must be some but I don't remember now any.

There's Gloria victis by Orzeszkowa, but that's rather a novel.
