Educating foreigners and encouraging them to learn more about the history of Poland are the main premises of this project. Every day between 1 August and 2 October 2018, at 5pm Warsaw time – 11 am Eastern Standard Time, short films will be published here and shared on social media describing selected episodes from the Warsaw Uprising. ‘63 Days of Extraordinary Courage 1944’ is an initiative prepared in English, meaning internet users around the world will be able to follow the occurrences of the Warsaw Uprising. From 1 August to 2 October 2018, at 5pm (‘W-hour’) Warsaw time, 11 am Eastern Standard Time, short one- or two-minute films will be published here and shared on social media – on Patrick Ney’s Facebook profile and YouTube channel – where Patrick will talk about selected events that took place in Warsaw on that particular day in 1944.Patrick Ney is a British filmmaker living in Warsaw. His film about Poland becoming his new homeland has been viewed over 33 million times over two years. His projects deal with topics of honour, dedication and courage, and ask questions about how we live today. Patrick began to visit Poland in 2007 and immediately fell in love with its rich history and romantic past. He has over 130,000 followers on social media.In those brutal days of August and September 1944, the vicinity of Polish Security Printing Works was the focal point of the struggles over the map of Warsaw, which was being devastated at an increasing rate. At that time, the resistance put up against the Germans by the heroic defenders of the PWPW Redoubt was a symbol of rebellion and opposition to the occupants, says Patrick Ney, adding: “Today, PWPW does everything in its power to commemorate the past, the brave men and women who fought to defend the PWPW Redoubt, Warsaw and all of Poland. I am honoured to be a partner in this exciting project. We will not disappoint the Fallen, he stresses. Thanks to the simple narrative and message based on the emotions that the Insurgents experienced each day, the films will not fail to rouse audiences’ reactions; the hope is that viewers will be inspired to independently seek out historical sources that describe the story of the Warsaw Uprising and discuss the history of Poland in more depth.The music for the films was composed by Polish composer Marek Iwaszkiewicz, with six exceptional pieces leading viewers through the history of the Warsaw Uprising. Each of these six compositions forms an inseparable element of the episode and reflects the emotions that are an integral part of every story. Most of Iwaszkiewicz’s work is published on SoundCloud, where his pieces have received millions of plays. For me, this is a really special project. In each of my compositions I tried to include an element of Polishness. Working on the music for the series was quite an emotional experience for me, says Iwaszkiewicz. I hope that my work will enable viewers to feel a stronger bond with the stories we describe, he adds.
