Description

Babino [baˈbinɔ] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Choroszcz, within Białystok County, Podlaskie Voivodeship, in north-eastern Poland. It lies approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) north-west of Choroszcz and 18 km (11 mi) west of the regional capital Białystok. On March 22, 1952, in the town, near the Warsaw-Białystok road, the National Military Union (NZW) patrol commanded by Stanisław Franciszek Grabowski ("Wiarus") were ambushed and killed. Stanisław Grabowski was one of the longest fighting soldiers of the anti-communist underground in post-war Poland. During the tearing up of the raid, Grabowski and two other partisans (Edward Wądołowski, pseudonym "Humorek" and Lucjan Zalewski, pseudonym "Żbik") died with weapons in hand.
