A monument in Warsaw, on the grounds of the orphanage named for Janusz Korczak. The monument is in memory of the Pole Piotr Zalewski.
Zalewski worked as a groundskeeper on the staff of the orphanage. When the facility was relocated to the ghetto, he insisted on remaining with Korczak and the children, for which he was severely beaten by the Germans. Piotr Zalewski was killed in the Polish uprising of August 1944.
