About this app

There was such a city ... A city tired of bombs, full of people who were left homeless. People for whom it was not home but became a substitute for shelter. A city where blood flowed through the streets and young people died on the pavement.
On March 15, 1939, German troops, after partial control of Czechoslovakia in October of the previous year, occupied the whole of this state. On March 21, German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop claimed that the Free City of Gdańsk would be included in Germany, and that the extraterritorial highway connecting Germany with East Prussia would run through Polish Pomerania. These demands were unacceptable for the Polish state reborn after 123 years of captivity. On August 23, 1939, a non-aggression pact was signed in Moscow between the Third Reich and the Soviet Union, whose secret protocol spoke of the division of Poland between the two states.
Lublin, as a provincial city, was at the far back of the front at the outbreak of war. It was the largest city located between the Vistula and Bug, but it did not belong to the leading Polish cities in terms of population. However, Lublin was a city with a huge tradition, combining different cultures, languages ​​and religions. There was also the Lublin Aircraft Factory, which produced reconnaissance aircraft for the army. The first effects of the ongoing war on the western borders of the war, the city residents felt only on September 2, 1939, when the first German bombs fell on Lublin ...
The application aims to bring events that took place in Lublin during the war in September 1939. Through the help of multimedia, preserved photos, eyewitness memories and other sources, the history of the bombing of the city and its heroic defense was presented on September 16-17, 1939.
