In January or February 1945, while walking along Marszałkowska Street I saw a crowd of people at Anc’s Pharmacy (corner of Marszałkowska and Oleandrów Streets). I looked into the burnt-out basement and saw a few bodies lying amongst the rubble. Strictly speaking, these were human remains, but today I am unable to give a more detailed description. They were covered with snow. This was on the Marszałkowska Street side.
I later heard from a number of people – whose surnames I cannot provide – that during the Uprising the Germans would stand people in front of the pharmacy and execute them right there, and also that they would throw living people into the blazing building.
In August 1945, Anna Niesłuchowska reported to the Polish Red Cross; she gave official testimony concerning the murders committed by the Germans at Anc’s Pharmacy.
The witness attached a copy of the report dated 11 August 1945.
The report was read out.
