Andrzej Bargiełowski „Stańczyk”
Lance Corporal Andrzej Bargiełowski "Stańczyk" was born on 3 January 1921 in Warsaw. Here he attended Stanisław Kostka high school. During the occupation, he worked for the ‘Jan Sudecki’ firm. He studied at the underground courses of the Warsaw School of Economics from 1941 to 1944. He was with the underground ‘Baszta’ Regiment, O 1 company. During the Uprising, he was unable to join his regiment and fought in the 2nd Company, ‘Golski’ Battalion, in the southern Śródmieście (city centre) region.  Following the Uprising, Bargiełowski was deported to Stalag X B in Sandbostel. After the War, he worked at the Film Institute in Łódź, as well as the Documentary Film Studio in Warsaw. He died on 6 August 2010 in Warsaw.

 

  • The photographer used a Kodak Retina II camera which he received as a high school graduation present in May 1939. He took 111 photos with it during the Uprising, using 35mm Agfa Aeropan and Mimosa films. All of the photographs were taken in the first 10 days of August, in the southern part of the city, around Marszałkowska, Polna, 6 Sierpnia, Lwowska, Koszykowa, and Piękna Streets. The negatives were saved by the photographer’s father, Józef Bargiełowski. Andrzej Bargiełowski’s photographs fall into the amateur category, along with others taken by Home Army soldiers in the free time they had from their duties at the front. His photos feature his ‘Golski’ Battalion colleagues, and civilians constructing barricades.
