New Zealand Embassy Warsaw, Poland

Commemoration of the Battle of Monte Cassino – 70th Anniversary

A very special occasion gathered a number of distinguished guests at the Monument to the Battle of Monte Cassino in Warsaw on 13 May – the 70th anniversary of that historical battle, during which several thousand Kiwi soldiers fought and over 300 lost their lives.

The New Zealand Embassy was represented by Chargé d'Affaires a.i. Ms Jan Bailey, who participated in the laying of a combined wreath representing the allied countries whose soldiers fought in the Battle.

“The battle of Monte Cassino was a battle on Italian soil, but fought for the freedom of Poland; it heralded the end of the war” – said President Komorowski during his speech.

New Zealand had a major role in two of the four battles for the liberation of the Cassino monastery. Its contribution ought to be remembered and passed on to future generations.
