With regard to the present matter, I know the following: I cannot remember the exact date. It was in the fall of 1943, some Jews were shot dead by German gendarmes who came from Miechów with the Ukrainians, brought over here by the local commandant, Szubert. The names of the Jews were: Mendel Zalman, Szaja Wolgerenter, Dwojra Wiszniczka, Fajgla Wiszniczka, Szpryńca Zeleman, Chaim Fiszler and Mincla Fiszler. All of them were executed in a backyard in Kazimierza Wielka. Each of those Jews was killed on the spot when they were caught by the gendarmes and the Ukrainians from Miechów. I know that well because I saw them after they had killed those Jews. I do not know anything else in relation to this matter.

At that the report was concluded and signed after being read out.
