During the German occupation I initially lived in Okęcie and in Grójec, depending on where my husband worked. During the occupation, My husband, Jan Mikowski (born on 10 May 1896), a chauffeur/mechanic by profession, initially drove a cab; he worked in the Lisiecki company in Warsaw, and in November 1943 he was employed in a German company called “Dynesen”, with its seat at the corner of Karowa and Krakowskie Przedmieście streets in Warsaw.
I wish to note that while the principal seat of the company was in Warsaw, it had a branch office in Grójec, and that is where my husband worked. On 7 December 1943 I came with my husband to Warsaw and at 9.30 a.m. I parted with him at the corner of Śniadeckich and Marszałkowska streets. My husband was going to the Auto Service on Nowy Świat Street to get car parts. I was supposed to meet with him at noon in Okęcie. He never showed and I have never seen him again.
I tried to find my husband, I figured that he could have been caught during the street round-up which took place in Warsaw that day. I asked the director of the company where my husband worked to intervene with the Gestapo; the director called them, but did not learn anything.
I placed one food parcel for my husband in Krochmalna Street, and this parcel was accepted, I therefore believe that he was detained in Pawiak prison.
On 15 December 1943 I saw my husband’s name on a poster, under number 86 or 96, indicating him as an execution victim. During that time executions were carried out in Leszno Street and in Teatralny Square. I don’t know where my husband was executed.
I have not learned any details about my husband’s last moments.
I don’t know whether my husband worked in an underground organization.
The report was read out.
