Warsazawa - Pomnik Fryderyka Chopina

The Monument to Frédéric Chopin, Polish composer, in Warsaw's Łazienki Park.

The original statue was destroyed by the Germans during the World War II occupation of Warsaw, but was recast after the war from the original mold.  It was one of the first signs of Polish culture that the German's targeted for destruction.  Legend has it that the day afterword a sign appeared where the statue had stood saying  "I don’t know who destroyed me, but I know why: so that I won’t play the funeral march for your leader."[
