Pawiak was a prison in Warsaw that was built in 1835. During the January 1863 Uprising, it served as a transfer camp for Polish people sentenced by Imperial Russia to deportation to Siberia. During the World War II, the Pawiak Prison became part of the Nazi concentration-death camp apparatus. In 1944 the Germans destroyed it, but the buildings were not rebuilt after the war. Half of the gateway and three detention cells survived. The surviving basement houses the museum. During the construction, objects from the rubble, including object grilles, hinges, locks and fittings, documents, equipment and items used by the prisoners were recovered.
