When the Warsaw Uprising broke out, I was at home at Tykocińska Street 36/40. Already at the beginning of August 1944, the Germans ordered all of the men from Targówek to report to the square near the rail tracks at Radzymińska Street. The blue policemen announced that if the Germans were to find any men in our area after the set deadline, they would be executed on the spot. Nevertheless, a small number of men did not obey the order. I also hid, in the attic of our building. The men who went to the assembly point were allocated to various kinds of work. The elderly were released home. My son, Witold, was taken to the electric cables factory. Two or three times a week, the men who had been taken received two-hour passes to visit their homes. Around 26 August, all of the men from our area were transported to the Gdański Railway Station, and from there deported to Germany. My son managed to get to Prussia. Some of the men did not return to their homes after the Uprising.

I did not hear anything about any executions in our area during the Uprising.

At this point the report was concluded and read out.
