Bronislawa Komorowskiego found at the end of the street where he lived. The square itself was renamed after the war in honour of a local Catholic Polish priest who was one of those rounded up by the Nazis at the start of WWII and interned in Stutthof Concentration Camp. Following months of torture he was executed on Good Friday, March 22, 1940. Father Komorowski was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1999.
