Fair use rationale for Image:AK trains.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:AK trains.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Merge from Polish partisans[edit]

Polish partisans has been recently created on a former redirect by User:Partisan1. Currently, it describes some activity of Polish partisans in the three eastern voivodeships of the Second Polish Republic, and as such is quite incomplete. While Polish partisans is indeed a notable subject and deserves a subarticle more detailed and separate from Polish resistance movement in World War II, as it is, is is an orphaned and incomprehensive article that should be merged here. Comments? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 21:00, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

After some thought, I think that there is no need to merge, this content is poorly written, poorly integrated, and most importantly, its not new - its forked by simple copying from other existing articles.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:28, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Polish resistance movement in World War II[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Polish resistance movement in World War II's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Piotrowski":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 07:37, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Size of partisan army[edit]

"The fight against the Nazi occupation of Poland was an important part of the European anti-fascist resistance movement and had the largest partisan army in occupied Europe." How many people served in partisan army? "By 1944 the AK had some 380,000 men, although not all of them were armed: the AL was much smaller, numbering around 30,000 [2]. By the summer of 1944 Polish underground forces numbered more than 300,000 with some estimates of over 400,000-500,000." OK, let's compare it with Yugoslav partisan army: "Strength up to 800,000 men." Soviet partisan: 60 000 in Russian SFSR, 150 000 in Ukrainian SSR, 844 000 in Belorusian SSR.
So it's not correct to call Polish partisan army "the biggest".

I feel that the grammar and style of this article may need to be improved to further adhere to Wikipedia's quality standards. Please see various sections for examples —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:55, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

B-class review[edit]

This article is currently at start/C class, but could be improved to B-class if it had more (inline) citations.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk to me 01:42, 11 May 2012 (UTC)


OK, so Żydowska Organizacja Bojowa is now only a redirect to the English translation (which is not even an only English translation, actually "Fighting Organziation" is far more common), while the other Polish resistance organizations are practically all referred to by their Polish names (Armia Krajowa, Gwardia Ludowa, Bataliony Chłopskie, etc etc). What do you say to rename it to Polish? Also others like that, notably Narodowe Siły Zbrojne. --Niemti (talk) 01:17, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Polish resistance saving more Jews than the Allies[edit]

"...for saving more Jewish lives in the Holocaust than any other Allied organization or government.[citation needed" It's possible, but needs a cite as requested by someone. Ping User:Poeticbent - would you have a ref handy? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:36, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
