Entrevista del testigo

Kazimierz S. reminisces: "They told the men of the group to go out. They forced them to dig a pit and put the bodies of shot Jews there. Under pressure from the Germans they threw them inside. Afterwards, they made another group go out [from the basement]. For them, it was even worse. They had to lie down on the bloody ground where the first group was shot. That’s where they shot them." (Eyewitness N°148, interviewed in Siemnice, on August 18, 2012)
