On 21 February 1948 in Radom, the District Commission for the Investigation of German Crimes with its seat in Radom, this in the person of a member of the Commission, lawyer Zygmunt Glogier, interviewed the person mentioned hereunder as a witness, without taking an oath. Having been advised of the criminal liability for making false declarations, the witness testified as follows:
|Name and surname||Witold Gomziuk|
|Age||35 years old|
|Parents’ names||Wincenty and Emilia|
|Place of residence||Traugutta Street 62, Radom|
|Relationship to the parties||none|
I was arrested by the Gestapo on 12 February 1940. They took me to the prison in Radom. On 17 July 1940, I was deported to Sachsenhausen, from where I was released in 1942. When I returned from the camp, I didn’t report to the Gestapo and instead went into hiding at various locations in the district of Siedlce.
I was interrogated twice by a functionary of some sort – a kind of prison judge – whereas they would beat testimony out of you. While I was in prison, I was beaten mainly by a slim, young blond man. Those who examined Jews spoke excellent Polish. During this time, the following persons were taken from prison for execution: engineer Gajdziński, engineer Ubara, engineer Góralewicz, the son of engineer Brzostowicz, the district physician, Mr Krawczyński, and a number of other people from Starachowice. I became aware that they had been earmarked for death, because the Germans took their personal items and separated them from the rest of us on the same night, while in morning they were collected by trucks, into which they were herded naked, both men and women. This was shortly before I was deported to the camp.
The above is concordant with my oral testimony.
