Entrevista del testigo

Ivan Y., born in 1923, remembered: “The German troops were strict but didn’t treat the local population badly. During the occupation, the Volksdeutsche’s families stayed in Hirske until the end of the German retreat. The rural council nominated policemen. The function of these policemen was to keep order and to protect the local population from bandits." (Witness N°1827, interviewed in Hirske, on September 02, 2013)

Nota histórica
