    The triumphal arch will commemorate the Battle of Warsaw

    The triumphal arch that will be built in Tomaszów Lubelski will remind us of our great Polish history, said Jacek Sasin, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State Assets. On Saturday, he signed the foundation act for the construction of the arch.

    The triumphal arch will be erected in front of the building of one of the high schools in Tomaszów Lubelski to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Warsaw and the 100th anniversary of Marshal Józef Piłsudski’s stay in Tomaszów. On March 20, 1921, Piłsudski in Tomaszów Lubelski decorated and received a parade of cavalry regiments – Krechowiecki, Jazłowiecki, Podolski Uhlans and the 6th Horse Artillery Squadron.

    The Deputy Prime Minister emphasized that the triumphal arch would refer to the triumphal gates erected in honor of Marshal Piłsudski coming to Tomaszów Lubelski.

    He recalled that Piłsudski in Tomaszów Lubelski was a few days after the signing of the Treaty of Riga and that Tomaszów Lubelski was no longer a borderland town, but actually found itself in central Poland.
