During the Warsaw Uprising I lived at Miączyńska Street 5 in Warsaw. On 1 August 1944, having repelled the insurgent attack, at about 6.00 p.m. the Germans threw the civilians out from Miączyńska Street and a bit earlier also the people from other streets, marching them all to the Mokotów fort dungeons. At the time, the German soldiers shot and wounded the brother of Marian Franciszek Weiss, who was in the garden of his house, and in the field by Bełska Street they severly wounded Misztel, a woman who was going with milk for a child (she currently resides on Głogowa Street). I saw both these wounded people. At about 8.00 p.m. the Germans set fire to the house of Maria Konarska; I saw the glow of the fire and a few days later I buried corpses, among whom were the bodies of the residents of that house. It was said that the house had been set on fire because the insurgents had left it after their action.

I don’t know whether the residents of that house had wanted to leave together with other civilians.

I think that there are no eyewitnesses of the execution and the setting of the house on fire. A few residents of the house of Konarska who had gathered in the basement, charred with fire, had been murdered by the Germans with grenades, as the bodies which we uncovered from the basement were in pieces.

The bodies were uncovered from the basement by Jan Kurek, residing on Olimpijska Street.

At this point the report was concluded and read out.
