1863 · January Uprising

Age 0

The Polish citizens of the Russian Partition launched an insurrection against the Russian Empire on January 22, 1863. The inciting event of the rebellion was the proposal of a draft to force young Polish activists to serve twenty years in the Imperial Russian Army. Although the protest began with primarily with the youth, they were eventually joined by high-ranking officers and political members. Unfortunately for the Poles, they were disorganized and quickly outnumbered. The Russian Empire carried out retaliation in the form of deportations and public executions. The Poles were soundly defeated, suffering between 10,000 to 20,000 casualties.


Age 7

Russia attempts to eradicate Polish culture, making Russian the official language of the Russian partition. Prussia does the same in their portion of Poland, attempting to Germanicize Poles. Under the Austrian partition, Galician Poles are allowed to retain some autonomy.

1897 · National-Democratic Party

Age 34

In 1897, while the Polish were still controlled by the Russian Partition, they created a secret political organization called the National-Democratic Party. Also known as the SDN, they primarily focused on promoting legislative changes and other forms of non-violent resistance. The group was dissolved in 1919 when Poland regained their independence.
