2020 – The Anders Memorial Project
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of General Wladyslaw Anders’ death and of the 75th of Liberation Day, our cultural Association «Eredità e Memoria» (Legacy and Memory) is suggesting the achievement of a Memorial dedicated to General Anders, commander of the II Army Corps of the Polish army that freed Imola on April 14, 1945, which will be installed in Imola, in Anders Park in 2020.
The monument will find its place in the green area named after General Anders alongside the sanctuary of the Beata Vergine della Coraglia, along Via della Resistenza, next to the monument of the Wojtek bear, the beloved mascot of the II Army Corps of the Polish army. And will complete the initiatives started since 2005, with the inauguration of the Monument to the Polish Soldier originally placed at the entrance of Imola and then transferred to the garden in 2018.
