Memoriał Wolnego SłowaWarsaw, Poland
4.2 / 5
Memoriał Wolnego Słowa is an original and eye-catching monument that serves as a place of remembrance for the conspiratorial free speech movement during the era of the Polish People's Republic. Despite its unconventional appearance, with a design that is not perfectly suited for jumping on a speeding scooter to reach the roof, the memorial stands out as a significant symbol. Located near the former censorship building, which has now been transformed into an intimate department store with boutiques, the memorial catches the eye with a thick black line. This line starts at the height of ul. Nowy Świat, directly across from the former headquarters of the Central Committee of the Polish United Workers' Party, and ascends several meters before ending at the height of the Liberty Corner office building. The memorial represents the act of crossing out a line of text that was deemed unfit for publication by the censor. This interesting object, reminiscent of a ramp, pays tribute to the underground publishing movement that operated during the challenging times of the Polish People's Republic.
