61 Rakowiecka Street. The St. Andrew Bobola church.
On December 1, 1935 in the Rakowiecka street number 61 the House of the Jesuit Order's Writers was opened, the founder of which was Pope Pius XI. On June 20, 1938 the relics of Andrew Bobola were put there.
On August 2, 1944, at the beginning of the Warsaw Uprising, in the basement of the House of Writers Germans murdered 44 Polish people, including 8 priests, 8 Jesuit friars and 28 other people.
After the war the room of the slaughter was changed into a chapel and the victims' bones were entombed under the floor.

On the church wall one can see the plaques:
- in memory of Fr. Major Józef Warszawski SJ a.k.a. "Ojciec Paweł", the chaplain of the Home Army unit "Radosław";
- in memory of fallen and deceased scouts of the Scout District "Mokotów Górny", the Home Army soldiers including the Grey Regiments' members.
