Grzegorz Przemyk Memorial

  ul. Elektoralna 5/7 ,   Mirów & Muranów         more than a year ago

If you find yourself walking by the rather gloomy looking school building on Elektoralna 5/7, wait, wait - we have a historical anecdote for you! On the facade you’ll notice a plaque dedicated to the memory of a lad called Grzegorz Przemyk. He was the son of a subversive poetess called Barbara Sadowska who frequently fell afoul of the communist authorities for her covert political and artistic gatherings. Fed up with her anti-authoritarian stance the militia decided to scare her by giving her son a damn good kicking. It went too far, and Przemyk died of internal injuries on May 12, 1983. The subsequent inquiry was seen as a whitewash and the case has since pinballed around the Polish and European law courts for over a decade without a definitive verdict as to what happened.
