70th Anniversary of Warsaw Uprising. We remember.
A little context for those who don’t know….
On August 1, 1944 the poorly armed Polish Home Army rose up against the Nazis and reclaimed Warsaw. With almost no help from the Allied Powers, they held the city for sixty three days before they were forced to surrender. After the Nazis recaptured Warsaw, they razed the city and deported the entire civilian population. Most of the civilian population was released, but a significant minority was deported to the death camps.
The art above is a reinterpretation of one of the most iconic images of the Warsaw Uprising- Eugeniusza Lokajskiego’s photo of Różyczka Goździewska (d. 1989), a little girl who volunteered at a Warsaw field hospital.
The Warsaw Uprising is not the same thing as the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The Warsaw Ghetto uprising took place in 1943, not 1944.
Thank you so fucking much.

mythology alphabet: z - zagreus [(Greek: Ζαγρεύς) ] - the obscure and ancient figure of Zagreus was identified with the god Dionysus.
A single early appearance of Zagreus is in a quoted line from the lost epic Alkmeonis, written in the sixth century BC if not earlier: “Mistress Earth and Zagreus who art above all other gods.” The Ionian word zagre signifies a "pit for the capture of live animals"
history: According to the followers of Orphism, Zeus had lain with Persephone — who, by the tradition ascribed to Orpheus, was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter — in the form of a serpent. The result of their union was Zagreus. Zeus had intended Zagreus to be his heir, but a jealous Hera persuaded the Titans to kill the child. Like the infant Zeus in Cretan myth, the child Zagreus was entrusted to the Titans who distracted him with toys. While he gazed into a mirror they tried to seize him and he fled, changing into various animal forms in his attempt to escape. Finally he took the form of a bull, and in that form they caught him, tore him to pieces, and devoured him. […] Zeus implanted the still-beating heart into the mortal woman Semele, from whom the child was eventually born again, despite Hera’s intervention. Some accounts say that he was reassembled and resurrected by Demeter; others, that Zeus fed his heart to Semele in a drink, making her pregnant with Dionysus.
