Name day: Dionizy, Teofil

          At 8 pm of German time (9 pm of Polish time) any military operations and hostilities in Warsaw cease.
          After 63 days of fights - the city goes silent...

          Along with the fall of the Uprising, the Scout Field Mail also discontinues its activities.
          Its archives are hidden in metal boxes and buried in the backyard of the building at 41 Wilcza Street (excavated by the Security Service SB of the Polish People's Republic after the war and never disclosed).

          Around 16 000 civilians leave Śródmieście.

          The Liaison Committee is formed - its goal is to monitor further proceedings related to the Home Army troops leaving the territory of the city and securing the area.
