With regards to this case, I have the following information: I don’t remember the exact day, but it happened in June 1943. I was living at Antoni Maj’s place in Strużki. The German gendarmerie arrived. They surrounded the village of Strużki, set fire to the buildings, and started throwing some people into the fire and shooting others. One of the German gendarmes set fire to Antoni Maj’s house. At that moment, one of the gendarmes ordered me to smash quern-stones to pieces, and started beating and pushing me, with no regard for anything. I started begging them not to murder us, but they ignored our pleas and continued. While running away in order to survive, I paid no attention to the shots fired because I hoped to die from the German gendarme’s bullet. I hid among the rye and survived. The gendarmerie burnt down the village and murdered its residents in a brutal manner. They murdered over a hundred people. This is all I know with regards to this case.

At this point the report was brought to a close, read, and signed.
