Warsaw Uprising have place between 1 August – 2 October 1944 (2 months and 1 day). Polish resistance Home Army have ~40,000 armed soldiers.
I was lucky enough to visit this museum (and see the movie) while in Poland for our pre-mobilization training with a Polish Army unit. One of the amazing things is the museum is very new (within the last decade) as the Soviets wouldn't allow the Polish to celebrate much of their history. While they were generally OK with the parts on German atrocities, they didn't want to promote Polish nationalism, and also too many things (including the Warsaw Uprising) had negative implications for the Soviets as well. Luckily many brave Poles were able to hide artifacts/pictures/documents for decades to preserve their heritage.
Going to one of the memorials in Warsaw that talked about the Katyn massacre was also haunting. I actually bought a Polish DVD of the movie Katyn (with English subtitles, my Polish wasn't that good). The tragedy of families destroyed, half killed by the Germans, and the other half the Russians, and then the survivors unable to mourn either publically.
