Stefan Lewandowski
Stefan Lewandowski was born on 10 April 1929 in Warsaw. Since 1942 he worked at a locksmith’s on Leszno Street, not far from Kercelak marketplace. He wasn’t a soldier in the Uprising, but tagged along with his brother, Senior Rifleman Karol (pseud. ‘Karolek’) of the ‘Żniwiarz’ group in Żoliborz district, with a camera. He left Warsaw with the civilian evacuation, travelling via a transit camp in Pruszków, and reaching Potok Wielki in the Świętokrzyskie voivodeship where he worked on a farm. After the war he returned to Warsaw and graduated from the Municipal Mechanical High School in Targowa Street and worked in the City Public Transport workshops. He lives in Żoliborz district in Warsaw.

 

  • Lewandowski, who was 15 at the time, took 39 photographs during the Uprising in the Żoliborz district, using a twin-lens reflex Rolleicord camera , on 6x6cm negatives. Soldiers of the ‘Żniwiarz’ group, paramedics, his brother Karol as well as various civilian friends and neighbours are all immortalised in his photos, which were taken around Bytomska and Czarnieckiego Streets as well as at his family home at Mickiewicza 34/36 in Żoliborz district.
