At Grodzka 11 street is the building of the former rectory of the no longer existing parish church. After 1870, it housed the offices of the Jewish religious community and the orphanage for Jewish children and the elderly, the so called "shelter".

On March 24, 1942, during the liquidation of the ghetto there was an execution of the children from the orphanage, the elderly, and teachers who, not wanting to leave the children, voluntarily decided to die.
