  • Wolski resided in Block 3 of Auschwitz I, which is known to have housed the penal company.  
  • Additional research in the Arolsen archives proves that Kowalski later died in KZ Neuengamme on 2nd of July 1942. His cause of death, which is of course in many cases far from the truth, as given by the camp administration was "Versagen von Herz und Kreislauf bei chron. Magen- und Darmkatharrh.".
