6/2/2020 4:37 PM In these court proceedings there is only answer to the first of your three questions: the body was found in front of the Labor Office (Urząd Pracy) on Leszno Street near Żelazna Street. The witness states that Mr. Gutlejzer was shot.
6/3/2020 7:10 AM Excerpt from the court proceedings:
Testifies Mr. Edmund Idzikowski. In 1942 he worked at the Labor Office (Arbeitsamt) in the Warsaw Ghetto. Next to the Labor Office, in the former Sadlowski School, was the boundary of the Ghetto and remaining parts of the city.
Some time close to the end of 1942 I was told that Mr. Mordka Szmul Gutlejzer was killed and that his body lies in front of the Labor Office. I saw his body lying on Leszno Street near Żelazna Street. It was about 8 AM. Mr. Gutlejzer worked at the Cemetery Department and was evidently crossing Into the Aryan side when he was shot as he was taken in a special roundup. I recognized Mr. Gutlejzer’s body and attended (only) part of his burial, because I was unable to go to the cemetery which was on the Christian side.
