Story of Rescue - Wiechno Wojciech

Wojciech Wiechno was an orthopaedic specialist who, during the War, worked at St.Roch’s Hospital in Warsaw. He aided Jews, escapees from the Warsaw ghetto, admitting them into his hospital as patients. Jews would stay there for a few days or even a little longer, until such time as a refuge could be found for them on the Aryan side. Dr Wiechno continued this activity up until the hospital was evacuated to Pszczelin following the Warsaw Uprising.
