I myself did not witness the atrocities committed by the Germans during the Warsaw Uprising in the Anca pharmacy on the corner of Marszałkowska Street 21 and Oleandrów Street. I have read the open letter of Marek Korganow concerning this case, which was published in a Kraków newspaper Dziennik Polski in July 1945. I submitted a copy of this letter to the office of the Polish Red Cross in Warsaw at Piusa Street 24. When I was in Warsaw this February I saw for myself, in the ruins of the basement of that pharmacy, some charred body parts of two or three people: skulls, rib cage with remnants of muscle and men’s clothing. I picked up several men’s hats and they were all bullet-ridden. I found some blonde hair and fragments of burnt skin inside one of them. Moreover, I saw a few assorted men’s shoes there. I talked about this matter with Łukawski, whose name I do not know, an employee of the Roman Catholic Savior parish (Warsaw, Mokotowska Street 13), who told me that he had seen a lot of charred corpses of men in the basement of that pharmacy, and that in his opinion they could be identified. These bodies were buried in three mass graves at aleja Piłsudskiego in the first half of February this year. In July I saw human vertebrae, ribs, a tibia with a men’s garter and a pair of shoes under the floor in the said pharmacy.
Last year in August, during the Warsaw Uprising, one could smell a strong stench of burning bodies at Marszałkowska Street from Zbawiciela Square to Koszykowa Street. I used the basements to reach my burnt down house at Marszałkowska Street 31, and the smell was stronger there. I could not determine its source, but it came from that part of the city which was captured by the Germans.
I have nothing more to add. The report was read out.
