Corner of S. Dubois and Miła Streets
(Miła 18)
In this area was the building Miła 18. In its cellar was a bunker, which the command of Jewish Fighting Organization (ŻOB) occupied. On May 8, 1943 it was discovered by German divisions. Most of the fighters committed suicide, with Mordechaj Anielewicz (1919-43) and Arie Wilner (1917-43) at their head. After the war, in 1946, a mound was formed on the ruins of the house and a memorial stone placed there with inscriptions in Polish, Yiddish and Hebrew.

A granite tablet was affixed to this new building, bearing part of the farewell letter of Szmul Zygielbojm, a Bund activist and a member of Polish National Council in London: "I cannot be silent and I cannot live while the rest of the Jewish people die in Poland. May 11, 1943."

(Pawiak Prison)

This jail was built 1829-35. During the Nazi occupation it served as the Gestapo prison. Over 100,000 people passed through its cells. Among them were many Jews hiding with so-called Arian identity papers. Over 30,000 people, including Emanuel Ringelblum, were shot to death and cremated in Pawiak and on the nearby ghetto ruins.
