Chłodna 15 is where Jerzy Popiełuszko, the Catholic priest murdered by security services in 1984, once lived. A fierce anti-communist, Popiełuszko had strong links with the Solidarity movement and had been identified as a threat to the system. Having already survived one attempt on his life he was followed after saying mass in Bydgoszcz on October 19th, 1984, apprehended and murdered before his body was unceremoniously dumped in a lake. Seen as a national hero and martyr his funeral attracted over a quarter of a million mourners, and today a stone tablet sits in the centre of ul. Chłodna in tribute to his life.
