78 Karolkowa at the corner of Żytnia. The plaque in memory of General Zbigniew Ścibor-Rylski a.k.a. "Motyl" is put on the 78 Karolkowa building from the side of Żytnia street and reads as follows,

Here in August 1944 the Warsaw Insurgents were struggling fierce fights to maintain the barricade in Karolkowa street.
Lt Zbigniew Ścibor-Rylski, a.k.a. "Motyl" was awarded the Virtutu Militari Silver Cross for unexampled courage in defending insurgent posts.
At the time of severe assault he was the one who motivated the soldiers to continue fighting by having damaged a German tank on his own, which made the enemies retreat.
