13.1 miles NE of Radzilow

Osowiec is the site of a 19th Century fortress that figured prominently in the history of this area through the years, and during the Holocaust.
Also, some Radzilovers fled through there in an attempt to flee the pogroms, since it was the only way then to cross the marshlands
of the Biebrzanski National Park to go east, to towns like Goniadz and Trzcianne.
