The Battle of Berlin

Witness of the Final Battle

Józef Przedpełski saw the last fightings of the war through a window at the school

Józef Przedpełski was housed in the school across the railway tracks. Out of the window he watched the last days of fighting in Berlin at the end of April, 1945.

The school grounds was caught between the front and changed sides three times. It was there that he witnessed the invasion of the Soviet army.
