Now, There's One More Location in Warsaw

I posted here this picture of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center employees, during our rectn trip in the footsteps of Menachem Begin, at the site where the Warsaw Ghetto battle at Muranowska Square took place:

I have now been informed that a new memorial site has been fixed at the site where Pawel Frank(i)el, ZZW commander, was killed at Grzybowska Street 5a while attempting to elude the Germans and reach the forests.  His small force managed to kill four Germans before they were killed in the firefight.
