Polish Canadian Airmen Memorial

This memorial stands in Confederation Park in Ottawa. The plaque reads:

"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."
(Thomas Campbell)

This is to express the gratitude and admiration which lives in the hearts of former soldiers of the Polish Home Army for the valiant Canadian airmen who fell over Poland while flying support missions during World War II and in particular during the uprising aimed at liberation of the city of Warsaw from nazi occupation in August and September 1944.
