|On 14 October 1942, my husband||Lucjan Kociński, born on 14 October 1912 in Radom,|
a locksmith at the Arms Factory, was executed by the Germans on the gallows erected near the Arms Factory in Radom.
The circumstances of his execution were as follows:
On 25 September 1942, the Germans arrested my husband at his workplace at the Arms Factory. I never heard from him after he had been arrested. I knew he was in prison in Radom because when I went there to bring him a clean change of underwear I received dirty ones in return. I don’t know the reasons for his arrest.
On 14 October 1942, my cousin Alfreda Potkańska, a resident of Malczów, told me that she had seen the Germans hanging factory employees near the factory building. As she was passing by the gallows, they were hanging the seventh convict, my husband’s cousin, Mieczysław Dąbrówka. She also saw my husband waiting his turn. I wasn’t at the execution site. I didn’t have the strength, but I know that my husband was executed that day.
Having been shown a photograph of the people executed near the Arms Factory, the witness testified as follows:
I recognize my husband. He is hanging eleventh from the right or fourth from the left.
The witness is presenting the notification issued by Stadhauptman in Radom on 10 November 1942. The notification’s copy is attached to the report.
The report was read out.
