The Birthplace of General Joseph Bem

On 15 December 1910, on the sixtieth anniversary of general’s death, mayor Tadeusz Tertil proposed, and the Town Council passed a resolution, “to place a plaque in the wall of Bem’s birth house” to commemorate this event. The plaque was designed by major Brzozowski and built in for a hundred kronen remitted by the town. It was placed in the face wall of the house “registered as No. 88 Zawale, and marked with the ordinal number 2, Holy Spirit Square”, as Franciszek Herzig stated in his monograph Dzieje miasta Tarnowa (The History of Tarnow). Today, the square bears the name of General Joseph Bem.
