Zawiadomienie. Dzis w nocy wyrwalismy opryszkom cerskim z Pawiaka .
- Warsaw, Centralny Komitet Robotniczy Polskiej Partij Socjalisticznnej, 24 April 1906. Illegally printed broadside. 4to, nine lines of text; evenly a little browned, short marginal tear; otherwise fine. This Announcement, published by Polish revolutionaries, tells us that they freed tonight ten political prisoners, who had been sentenced to death, held by the Tsarist army in the infamous Pawiak prison in Warsaw (built from 1829 to 1835), concluding the the triumphant note 'they shall live in freedom'. The daring and life-saving deed had been carried out with stolen uniforms, and forged typewritten documents demanding the prisoners to be handed over. This event was celebrated throughout the Polish underground; however, printed documents of that kind could mean deportation to Siberia for the holder and are of greatest rarity. This item was exhibited at Kontrol, an art event-cum-exhibition organized by Poland Street Underground in London, November, 2009.
