Tajemnica Westerplatte



Westerplatte -

a peninsula located

at the mouth of the Port of Gdansk.

A small piece of land,

2 km long by 500 m wide.

In the nineteenth century,

it served as a holiday resort,

with a beach and a restaurant.

As a result of the

Treaty of Versailles,

ending World War I, land that once

belonged to the Third Reich

became the Free City of Gdansk.

Westerplatte was later granted

exclusively to Poland.

Until 1939, on the Polish part

of the peninsula,

a Military Transit Depot received

overseas shipments of uniforms

and military equipment.

Hello, Colonel.

Good timing, I'm just about

to have dinner. Please...

I can't believe what I'm hearing.

I'll repeat it once more.

This morning,

our Commander-in-Chief ordered

troops to back General Skwarczynski

from the south.

What does that mean for us?

You know full well, Henry.

Say it.


If we go to war, no one will back us up.

You are to hold out for 12 hours.

Not 6, but 12.

Why not 16?

Or 24'? Talk!


Commander-in-Chiefs orders.

The situation is not good.

This can happen at any time.

You of all people should understand.

We're fighting for our honour...

and for Gdansk.

Polish Gdansk.

I'm supposed to fight for Gdansk,

against Hitler, with 200 soldiers.

They're afraid if war breaks out,

the Skwarczynski division will be cutoff.

You are to hold out for 12 hours

and that's that.

And later...

Later, you can make any decision.

Anything you want.

Now, give me your word...

that this stays between us.

No one at the base must know.

It could hurt morale. You understand.

You have my word.

I have to go.

Where are you going in that outfit,

to a wedding or a funeral?

A funeral.

It's the last day of August.

Looks like it's going

to be a beautiful autumn.

See you later.

Take care of yourselves.

See you later.


What's going on?

The Germans blocked Gdansk

and our medical transport

Mietek is going crazy,

saying that if something happens

we won't have any medicine.

Otherwise, we're set and ready.

If they start with us,

they'll definitely regret it.

My dearest,

though time is short, I found

a second to write a few words.

I'll star! with myself.

I'm healthy,

as are my subordinates.

Dear sister, I know that you are alone

with mom. it must be tough.

Worse yet,

with our brother away, too.

Bu! you mus! cope.

The neighbours will help.

War hasn't yet broken out,

but it's closing in. Will it come?

We don'! know.

However, if it does...

you all know we must

fight and win.

Then, God willing,

we will finally have...


For now, we must all

fulfill our duties.

We over here, and you over there.

That will be best.

So... stay calm, as is expected

from good Polish women...

I can hear! Sound the alarm!

At last...

it's started.

The fortress has been breached!

When they enter our area, fight,

Gryczman. With precision!

Only with precision, Captain!

Take up your positions!!! Quickly!!!


Take up your positions!


What'd I just say?!

Take up your positions!

Stand up!

Get ready! Wait!

I said, wait!

You'll go when the shelling dies down.

Understood? That's an order!!

Turn off those bells.

That's enough!

Follow me!!!

Take the cannon through the woods.

You won't get there by road.

Maybe we'll try, running?

In the woods we'll get stuck.

Through the woods!!

Everyone, take up your positions!


One, two... one, two!

Westerplatte, September 1, 1939

It's 4:
55 a.m.

We've been

attacked by the Germans.

Give it by code.

Run! Run!

Hurry! Hurry!

- Fire at my command.

- Fire at explicit command!
