On 19 July 1948, in Skarżysko-Kamienna, Judge W. Gaździński heard the person named below as a witness. Having been advised of the criminal liability for making false declarations and of the significance of the oath, the witness was sworn and testified as follows:
|Name and surname||Stanisław Maciejewski|
|Age||37 years old|
|Names of parents||Adam and Zofia|
|Place of residence||Skarżysko-Kamienna|
|Occupation||military warehouse clerk|
When the front got closer and the first Soviet tanks entered Struga, the Germans gathered in the vicinity of the Educational Institution in Struga. The children from that Institution and the people from the village who took shelter there, including me, got an order from the Germans to go to Warsaw.
While we were making preparations for the journey, the Germans threw a grenade through a window of the Institute, and a few boys were wounded.
After we had been evicted from the Institution, I went with the children and their teachers to Warsaw, and on 2 August 1944, when the Uprising had already begun, we entered the city. We reached only Trębacka Street, and we were housed in the Carmelites church. A week later the Germans took all the people from the church to the Saxon Garden, where some 30 people were killed in my presence, including one young priest, and where father Zawada also got shot, although not fatally.
I do not know the surnames of the people who got killed, and I cannot provide the surnames of the people who witnessed this incident, as I knew them only by sight.
From the Saxon Garden the Germans took us under escort outside of Warsaw, and at the city border they handed us over to the “Mongols” and we were marched in the direction of Pruszków. In my group there were some 200 men. On the way, in Gołąbki, I managed to escape, but the entire group went to Pruszków and I don’t know what happened to them.
The report was read out.
