    Attempts to commemorate the victims of the communist crime of December 16, 1981 were taken immediately after the pacification of the mine, but all the symbols were instantly destroyed by the communist authorities. The monument was unveiled on December 15, 1991. It was designed by Alina and Andrzej Grzybowski. The monument consists of a 33-meter-tall cross and an urn with the soil from the graves of the nine miners. In the Memorial Museum we can see a documentary and an exhibition with a display illustrating the tragic events, accompanied by the sounds of tanks, helicopters and guns, which makes you feel the horror of the pacification.
