A celluloid factory at 10 Listopadowa 11 (11th of November, Poland's Independence Day) Street in Warsaw.
This factory was used as a hiding place by Jewish Fighting Organization fighters who got out of the ghetto on May 10, 1943 via the sewers. Two weeks later, on May 24, 1943, a fire started by a fighter's carelessly discarded match spread through the building and most of the group were burned alive. Some of the badly burned were taken by the Polish police to a German hospital, where they remained untreated and died. The only survivor, also burned, was Eliezer Geller.
