The camp was established in 1943. There were both Jews and Russians in that camp, but they were held separately. The camp was closed around August 1944.
On average, there were some 500 prisoners in the camp. The same number, that is about 500 people, passed through the camp during its period of operation. Upon liquidation of the camp, all the prisoners were deported in an unknown direction.
The Jews (all of them) had to work in Ludwików factory, and the Russians in the Germans’ Kraftfahrpark 555.
There was an infirmary in the camp and the prisoners received medical assistance. Some 15 prisoners died in the camp during its period of operation.
There were executions by hanging and by shooting. The prisoners were treated very badly. The corpses were buried outside the Ludwików factory. They were buried in the regular manner.
No material evidence from the camp survived.
I don’t know the surnames of the people who were imprisoned in the camp.
I know the following surnames of the Germans: Master Sergeant Mack, Gąper, Fuss, Warrant Officer Karol Dedek and Sergeant Kaizer. There were also many others.
At this point the report was concluded, read out and signed.
