When the Germans entered Kielce, I worked as a gardener in the garden at the Center for Physical Education and Civil Defence. I worked there until the capitulation of Germany.

I know that having entered Kielce, the Germans set up a German military hospital, which operated until 1940. When the hospital left the premises, a German staff headed by a general arrived and they quartered there until the capitulation of Germany.

I don’t remember any German surnames.

There wasn’t any camp for the Poles, only Jews were brought in for labor until the Ghetto was established. Then the Poles took over the work, and they were paid. They lived in town.

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