Warsaw pauses, magic happens in citywide tribute

Every year, something borderline magical takes place in Warsaw, Poland.

For one minute, across the city, everything stops. Pause takes place. Sirens sound. And the people pay homage to the fallen war heroes of 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising — a 63-day battle that saw Polish soldiers who resisted Nazi occupation in the city.

Watch how everyone — everyone — stops what they’re doing and pays tribute in a chilling moment of national pride.
