During World War II, some 3,000 Polish refugees from Poland migrated to Karachi, at the time a part of the British Raj. Many of these migrants later settled. About 58 Polish graves exist in the Christian Gora Qabaristan graveyard of Karachi. In memory of the 58 Polish citizens who died in Karachi in the 1940s, a memorial has been erected by the Polish government. It lists the names of all 58 individuals.
