When the Uprising broke out, I was at home at aleja Przyjaciół 3a. Until 5 August 1944 there was relative calm in our street. On this day the Germans – Gestapo men from aleja Szucha – started leading out the populace from our area into aleja Szucha. They had already evacuated our house during the night of 5 to 6 August. We were led out in a group of some 20 people into the Gestapo courtyard. There were already many women there, brought in previous transports of civilians from our area. From early morning until noon, the Germans separated the men from each incoming group of people. From our group the Germans took administrator Wieczorek and caretaker Borucki from aleja Przyjaciół 3 and led them to the barracks as hostages (or so the Germans said). I hid amongst the women. At around 1.00 p.m., the Germans ordered the women to arrange themselves in fours and told us that we would be led out to the insurgent lines. Since we were to exit the Gestapo courtyard through two inspection points where the Germans were supposed to check whether there were no men amongst the women, I thought that my attempted escape would be unsuccessful. However, I dressed up as a woman and managed to pass through both points without compromising my disguise. We were led out along Litewska and Marszałkowska Streets to Zbawiciela Square, to the insurgent lines.

None of the men who were taken to the barracks as hostages have returned to date. However, I did not see what happened with them.

At this point the report was brought to a close and read out.
