Warsaw Uprising and liberation of "Gęsiówka" concentration camp. #holocaust #poland

Hello

Exactly 78 years ago, on 5 August 1944, during the Warsaw Uprising, insurgents from Armia Krajowa batallion „Zoska” captured the Warsaw Concentration Camp (KL Warschau) called „Gęsiówka” in Warsaw and liberated remained 348 prisoners – Jews from Poland, Hungary, Norwey, Belgium, France, Greece and the Netherlands. Some of them have joined the Uprising, among them Henryk Ledeman, Józef Filar, Soltan Safijew, Henryk Poznański.

I think this fact is little known to the western public, so that is why I am giving  it here.

Maybe someone can say something about the later fate of anybody of the freed Jews..

Here is an article on it (in Polish):
