I was in the labor camp for young men at Piramowicza Street; my birth cohort was the first to be conscripted.

The camp was established in July 1942 and closed in July 1944. There were only Polish prisoners in this camp.

On average, there were some 200 prisoners in the camp. During its period of operation, about 800 people passed through the camp. Upon its liquidation, the prisoners took everything with them and went home.

The prisoners worked in the camp and at the railway. They were fed quite decently.

There was an infirmary in the camp and the prisoners received medical assistance.

There were no executions in the camp and nobody died.

Inspector “Dil” was the camp commander. Apart from him and “Szykiel” there were no other German functionaries in the camp. One Rybak was a forwerker, but I know neither his first name nor his current address. Sośnież was another forwerker, but I don’t know his address either. They were supervised by Tadeusz Głuszko, who was shot by the Germans in 1943.

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