Kielce, 8 March 1948. I, Stefan Młodawski from the Criminal Investigation Section of the Citizens’ Militia Station in Kielce, acting on the instructions of the Prosecutor from the District Court in Kielce, dated 12 December 1947, no. 8/47, issued pursuant to Article 20 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, with the participation of court reporter Marian Poniewierka, whom I advised of the obligation to attest to the conformity of the report with the actual course of the present procedure by his own signature, heard 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 Piotr Odrobiński
Parents’ names Paweł and Anna, née Turydziewicz
Age 70 years old
Place of birth Lgota, Miechów district
Religious affiliation Roman Catholic
Occupation locksmith
Place of residence Kielce, 3 Maja Street 6, flat 75

I lived in Dom Kultury Robotniczej [workers’ cultural center] in Kielce from 1939, and I worked as a stoker in the boiler house on the premises of the said center. I know that having entered Kielce, the Germans set up a German hospital in the center, and it admitted German patients until 1942. Then the German command, headed by a General, was quartered in the center. They stayed there until the capitulation of Germany.

I don’t know any surnames of the Germans. There was no camp for the Poles, but the Germans would bring Jews from the Ghetto for labor and march them back to the Ghetto.

When the Jews were deported from the Ghetto, the Poles from town did the work; the Germans paid them wages and the laborers received dinner.

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