Welcome to the Armia Krajowa project (Projekt Armii Krajowej).


About the Home Army (Armia Krajowa)

The Home Army (Polish: Armia Krajowa, abbreviated AK) was the dominant resistance movement in German-occupied Poland during World War II. The Home Army was formed in February 1942 from the earlier Związek Walki Zbrojnej (Armed Resistance) established in the aftermath of the German and Soviet invasions in September 1939. Over the next two years, the Home Army absorbed most of the other Polish partisans and underground forces. Its allegiance was to the Polish government-in-exile in London, and it constituted the armed wing of what came to be known as the Polish Underground State.

"With German troops mostly driven out of Poland, Home Army commander Leopold Okulicki ordered his forces to disband" on 19 January 1945.[1]

The Project

This project seeks to link up all those members of the Armia Krajowa on Wikitree's global tree.

Tasks to do

  • NEW: Add the Armia Krajowa sticker to all known members/insurgents (doing so will automatically add the category)
  • Add the Armia Krajowa category to all known members/insurgents
    • [[Category:Armia Krajowa, Polish Resistance, World War II]]
  • Link existing member/insurgent profiles to their specific biography on the website of Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego
  • Generate Wikitree profiles for as many members as possible.
  • Connect members to the global tree.
  • Make sure all members are appropriately sourced.

Tasks done

  • Start the project


The Resistance Sticker

We have been successful in getting a sticker for AK members, as part of the new Resistance Movement Sticker.

There is both an English and Polish language version of the sticker - it is your choice which to use, but obviously the Polish version would suit a Polish language bio.

Code Resulting Sticker
{{Resistance Movement |image=Armia_Krajowa.png |lang=pl |movement=[[Space:Armia Krajowa|Armii Krajowej]] |category=Armia Krajowa, Polish Resistance, World War II }}
Członek Armii Krajowej.
{{Resistance Movement |image=Armia_Krajowa.png |movement=[[Space:Armia Krajowa|Armia Krajowa]] |category=Armia Krajowa, Polish Resistance, World War II }}

Whichever version of the sticker you use, you must place it immediately below the 'Biography' header title.

Remember, a profile looks best with no more than 5 stickers.
