Zajączka 15 - Żoliborz district

         The mural painting is situated on a concrete fencing of the 31 School Complex named after Jan Kiliński in Zajączka 15 street in the Żoliborz district.
         The mural states, Żoliborz walczy - 1 VII 2014 - 63 dni chwały (The Żoliborz district is lighting - 1944 - 63 days of glory. The mural is professionally painted, its graphics and colour are well suited.
         The place is not occidental. Nearby, from August 20 till August 22, 1944 insurgent units attacked twice at night to acquire the Gdański Station. It was possible thanks to unification of the units from both Żoliborz and Old Town districts.
         Due to great combat supremacy of Germans and wrong action timing - Lack of liaison - two attacks ended with failure. The Home Army units lost severely and few hundred soldiers died, mainly the partisans from the Kampinos Forest who had come forward as support for the insurgents form the "Żywiciel" unit.
