During the Great Panic, the majority of Krakow fell within twenty-four hellish hours. As the city's exits clogged and then became overrun hundreds of thousands of uninfected people remained stuck in the city. With the suburbs rapidly falling almost ten thousand people fled back inward to the relative safety of the main square where trapped military personnel and police made a last stand. As Wawel Castle burned above them barricades were desperately erected. Overturned cars and the contents of surrounding shops and homes became fortifications that blocked the streets flowing into the square and then formed defensive rings within. What started as a flow of infected became an unending torrent. As the hours dragged on ammunition became exhausted. A horrific melee followed at great cost to the survivors. Just as the horde began to finally overwhelm the defenses heavy firebombing provided breathing room. Over the next few days, government resupply by the air enabled those in the Central Square to expand their fortifications and hold off the infected. Planned demolition of buildings by airstrikes and the construction of great walls of debris turned the desperate fight into a bitter siege. As days turned into weeks and then months the government resupply continued. It was only after the war that those trapped in Rynek Glowny discovered that their 'fortress' was the first of the Polish Redeker Plan "safezones", deliberately maintained to prevent the Krakow horde from flooding out.
