Having been advised of the right to refuse to testify for the reasons set forward in Article 104 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, and of the criminal liability for making false declarations, this pursuant to the provisions of Article 140 of the Penal Code, the witness testified as follows:
|Name and surname||Jan Milczarek|

I don’t remember the exact date, but it was during the German occupation. I received a notification from the Communal Board that I was to report for work to the township of Zawada, Łazisko commune, Brzeziny district, where a penal labor camp was situated.
I worked there for three months at river engineering. The camp was commanded by Filip. I don’t know whether it was his surname or nickname, but everybody called him that. I knew two more men who wore uniforms and supervised laborers during their work: their surnames were [both] Wołowski (other details unknown).
There was also a German in that camp who wore a uniform and whose surname I don’t know; he was tall, of medium build, and sported a black beard. He supervised those Germans who acted as our overseers. He was one of the worst, and he tormented us Poles relentlessly: he would beat and kick us laborers without mercy for the slightest offence, although we had to stand all day long in water, as a result of which people fell ill and died, having caught a cold. I don’t know the surnames of the Germans who supervised the camp.
At this point the report was concluded, read out and signed.
