When we consider the January Uprising, it is inseparably associated for most of us with an armed act of men and boys who fought to liberate their homeland.

She was a brave woman, a true patriot, who was often ashamed of the soldiers fighting under Langiewicz’s command with her heroism and will to fight. The aim of this article is to present her character in the light of selected testimonies and memories which, in my opinion, best characterize her person during the January Uprising.
