My husband was arrested by the Gestapo in the house at Wapienna Street 8 on 14 October 1943 and sent to the prison in Kielce. The Gestapo was informed by Władysław Miller (residing in Kielce) that my husband’s house was part of a clandestine organization and that my husband shaved the partisans and cut their hair at his place.

My husband stayed in the jail in Kielce until 14 December. That day, along with other prisoners he was executed and buried in Herby in Kielce. In 1945 his body was transferred to the Partisans’ Cemetery in Kielce.

I know that the execution was carried out by the gendarmerie but I don’t know the names of the perpetrators.

The report was read out.
