Polish nationalists from the town of Zary, near the border with Germany, went to Dresden in conjunction with the German nationalists to pay tribute to the victims of Dresden, among which the number of seven thousand were Poles, then residing in cities in Germany as forced laborers.

Civilian casualties and the destruction of the city were a result of Allied bombing during the night of 13/14 February 1945, when it was hit with incendiary bombs. Research indicates the number of victims reached 200,000, all at a time when the Third Reich was on the verge of collapse. This crime in Dresden matched the cruelty one of the greatest tragedies of the world – Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The perpetrators were never held responsible.

Polish nationalists gave a speech during the demonstration, which is available below. One of the participants had this to say about the event: “I have just returned from one of the most important trips. What a decade ago it seemed all observing the political scene impossible, impractical for a joint march with German activists NPD, Germany, with a Polish flag, it was today possible. Chauvinistic fears have been put aside” 

Excerpts from the speech Polish nationalists:

“Thank you for the invitation.
It is a very sad day. In the twenty-first century, we need a Europe of the Nations, a strong Europe, based on Roman, Latin values. Together with you, we remember the victims of the last civil war. War between European nations.We condemn the Soviet and US crimes against German civilians.
We condemn the rapes and other acts of violence that are happening now in Germany. They were made ​​hands of new invaders that threaten the whole of Europe. Power in Germany belongs to the Germans. We must fight together for our country and for Europe. In mutual respect for our cultures, history and traditions. The future belongs to us, not to the multicultural utopia.
