43 Wolska street - on the preserved fraction of the wall. The commemorating panel: "Here on August 5, 1944 the Nazis executed around 1000 Poles".
In the year 2018 the information written on the wall was completed.
Presently this is a new place for a commemorating plaque which was relocated here from the 45 Wolska factory building wall chosen to be pulled down. The plaque reads, "Here between August 5 and October 15, 1944 the Nazi Germans executed and burnt c. 6000 inhabitants of Wola district".
A metal plaque was put on the wall. One can read, "This is a fragment of the 41 Wolska J. Franaszek factory building wall."
Underneath the commemorating panels pieces of information in both Polish and English languages were put, giving the details of those tragic events, "On August 5, 1944 the area of the 41/45 Wolska Józef Franaszek S.A. Factory was occupied by Germans. About 1000 factory workers and inhabitants of surrounding homes who had been hiding in the factory were executed. One of the first execution's victims was the factory owner Kazimierz Franaszek. In the next weeks the factory became the area of massive executions and burning of several thousand Wola inhabitants. The overall number of the here-murdered Polish people is estimated at 4 - 6 thousand."
