About

House of the Szkocki family, friends of Karol Wojtyła.

Here they lived during occupation after the Gestapo commandeered their villa in Salwator district.

Wojtyła was especially attached to Irena Szkocka, whom he called grandma. He spent a few weeks under their care, convalescing after being hit by a German lorry in 1944.
