Bronisław Jarosiński and Maria Jarosińska


In the autumn of 1943, the Gestapo arrested Bronisław Jarosiński, his wife Maria, their few-year-old son Leszek and the five-person Jewish family that was hiding in their house in Stryj in the Stanisławowskie Province. In the announcement of the SS and Police Leader in the Galicia district from the 28th of January 1944, 84 people were sentenced to death. Among them, in 79th position, was Bronisław Jarosiński. His wife, although not mentioned in the document, was also killed with her husband for helping people of Jewish origin.


The Gestapo and a Ukrainian police officer came to the Jarosiński family’s house in November. Officers headed directly to the trap door entrance to basement under the wardrobe where Jews were hiding. They were ordered to get out and were taken to the police station in Stryj. Apart from them, the officers also took Bronisław, who was sick at the time, his wife Maria and their son. Both of their daughters were not at home at that time. Little Leszek was released and a Polish woman who was working for the Gestapo took him to a nursery run by the Serafitki Sisters at the Catholic church of St. Joseph. When Bronisław Jarosiński and Maria Jarosińska were in prison, Paulina Gruszecka (Maria’s sister) brought the children so that they could see their parents. After some time they were informed that their parents were executed. Their children stayed in the nursery until 1945. Later they went to Gliwice together with their aunt.
