The Association is looking for the right land lot for the Monument. It fights to protect the battlefield of Komarów. The Association is intensively developing while promoting the history of the Battle.

A watercolor has been found, probably showing the design of the monument by architect Borys von Zinserling.
“Association Bitwa pod Komarowem” is entered into the National Court Register. The first sketches of the Monument are created.
The founding meeting of the Association takes place in autumn. The initiator of the creation of the Association is Tomasz Dudek and Anna Wojda, the founding members are people who for many years have been cultivating the memory of the greatest cavalry battle of the 20th century.
Architect Borys von Zinserling wins the competition for the design of the Monument to the Glory of Cavalry and Mounted Artillery. The war stops plans to build and unveil the monument on the 20th anniversary of the Battle, in 1940. The monument’s design was lost.
SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MONUMENT
Continuing the work of those who wanted to commemorate cavalry and mounted artillery, we decided to start the construction of the Monument to the Glory of Cavalry and Mounted Artillery, which includes the mausoleum of the Battle of Komarów. In this work, we work with volunteer cavalry from all over Poland and the World Union of Home Army Soldiers – Zamość District.
Members of the Association of the Battle of Komarów carried out all the work related to the preparation for the construction of the Monument free of charge.
The construction of the Monument requires significant funds, therefore we are asking for financial support. Thank you!
