This is what the water treament plants looked like after the routing of the Germans from the capital. Everything had to be rebuilt from scratch, from removing the rubble to putting up a new building for the pump station. The first pump starts. Water! In the dying arteries of the city new life appears. Thank these people. They have stopped Warsaw’s thirst. Their names will be immortalized in bronze on an honor roll to the rebuilders of the capital.
