The history of the building:

IMG_0018

The Embassy is situated in a pre-war villa built in 1936. The project was made by Lucjan Korngold (1897-1963), an architect of international repute, on a special demand of Zofia Skibińska-Żochowska, born Wedel (1893-1944), sister of Jan Wedel, the co-owner of Candy and Chocolate Factory “E.Wedel” S.A. Zofia Żochowska, persuaded by her second husband Jerzy Żochowski to build this house, did not live too long at the villa. Not only she found out that her husband was unfaithful, the Second World War started.

Żochowska was arrested and some high-level representatives of Nazi dignitaries occupied the villa. After leaving the prison Zofia Żochowska lived on the first floor at her sister’s house, Mrs. Whitehead, on Szpitalna Street in Warsaw. In this period she was involved in conspiracy actions supporting many secret organizations (including the National Army). She was followed by her two young children Piotr and Krystyna.

Just after the Warsaw Uprising broke out her 15-years old son was killed at Teatralny Square while fighting as a member of the National Army. Shortly after this loss, while hiding in the basement of her family house on Szpitalna Street, Zofia was buried with her daughter under debris of the building hit by an aerial bomb.

After the Second World War, the villa was recreated to the office of the Embassy of Bulgaria, and next the Embassy of Albania. In 2004 the building has been acquired by the Great Duchy of Luxembourg and since 2006 is the office of the Embassy of Great Duchy of Luxembourg to Poland.
