Pawiak Prison Museum

The museum of the largest political prison in Nazi German-occupied Poland, the Pawiak, was built in 1965 to a design by Romuald Gutt and Mieczysław Mołdawa. Chrząszczowa photographed the open courtyard with a symbolic wall from Dzielna Street, abstract sculptures by Tadeusz Łodziana and Stanisław Słonina, and an obelisk by Zofia Pociłowska. The empty Pawiak courtyard is a unique type of monument in the Muranów neighbourhood, a densely developed area built on the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto. In the photos, residential blocks at Marchlewskiego and Anielewicza streets can be seen in the background.
