70 years ago, on February 8, 1951, in the Mokotów prison in Warsaw, a death sentence was carried out on Maj. Zygmunt Szendzielarz "Łupaszka" - the legendary commander of the 5th Vilnius Brigade of the Home Army, and then the partisan units of the Vilnius AK District. The major's trial was one of the most important elements of the communist propaganda campaign against the independence underground. In 2013, his remains were found by the Office of Search and Identification of the Institute of National Remembrance. 65 years after his death, the hero was buried with state honors at the Powązki military cemetery. At the funeral of Szendzielarz was the President of the Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda and the Minister of National Defense of Poland Antoni Macierewicz.
