Kielce, 2 March 194[8], 12.00 a.m. Stefan Młodawski from the Criminal Investigation Section of the Citizens’ Militia Station in Kielce, on the instruction of the Prosecutor from the Regional District Court Prosecutor’s Office in Kielce, dated 10 December 1947, no. 5/47, with the participation of court reporter Marian Poniewierka, interviewed the person named below as a witness. Having been advised of the criminal liability for making false declarations, the witness testified as follows:

Name and surname Genowefa Makowska, née Jaowiecka
Parents’ names Stanisław and Maria
Age 35 years old
Place of birth Kielce
Religious affiliation Roman Catholic
Occupation housekeeper
Place of residence Kielce, Domaszowska Street 41

During the occupation I lived in Kielce.

At the time when my husband was arrested he was employed at Fert’s. When he came back home on 23 June 1944 he was taken by the Gestapo. A few days later my husband was executed by the Gestapo at the Stadium.

As for the surnames, I don’t know any because these were Gestapo men. I heard that my husband’s fate was brought about by Zygmunt Podgórski, who worked with my husband in Staszewski’s workshop and denounced him as a member of an underground organization.

Once when I was walking down 1 Maja Street, I was approached by Zygmunt Podgórski’s mother-in-law, who told me that Podgórski reported my husband and asked, “How can you watch your children suffer from hunger when he walks the earth?” Her name was Porzog (I don’t know her forename) and she resided at 1 Maja Street near to Planty.

I would like to add that when Polish troops entered Poland, Zygmunt Podgórski immediately left for the West, to the so-called Recovered Territories. I don’t know his address.

At this point the report was concluded, read out and signed.
