Remembering the Silent and Unseen: commemorations mark 79th anniversary of first operation by fearless wartime fighters | The First News

Poland’s elite special forces unit is celebrating the 79th anniversary of their first combat jump. The Cichociemni jumped into Nazi-occupied Poland on February 15-16 in 1941 to defend their homeland. They trained in Britain before 316 soldiers jumped into the country throughout 1941 and 1944, including one female, Elżbieta Zawacka “Zo.” The last surviving Cichociemni, Major Aleksander Tarnawski, was unable to attend the ceremony but sent in a video inviting people to the 80th anniversary celebration, as well as his 100th birthday. Local members, school children, and authorities put flowers on an obelisk commemorating the event.
