1. I know that on 13 or 14 October 1942, ten people were hanged at the end of Mleczna Street in Radom. I don’t remember their names. On the following day the courtyard of the Arms Factory in Radom saw the execution of 22 people, whose names I don’t know either, and on the third day 15 people, 10 men and 5 women, one of whom was pregnant, were hanged opposite the Technical School, by the Warsaw road in Radom. One of the women was probably called Winczewska. Another one, the "Społem" employee, was called Tomaszewska. The Germans also hanged a secretary at the Polish Red Cross. Before the war she had served as President of the Polish Scouting Organization. I don’t know her name.
I know that in Różki the Germans hanged a dozen or so people. I don’t know the exact number.
2. I didn’t see the execution. I believe that people living close to the execution site can describe the event.
3. In none of them.
5. There was a white board, 30 by 50 centimeters, set up by the execution site. It contained a notice in black in Polish. It said as follows: A warning to the Polish population. Anyone who ever offers assistance to the bandits will be hanged along with his or her loved ones.
6. The bodies of the executed were buried in the evening. I don’t know where.
The report was read out.
In addition, the witness Małecki is giving the address of another witness to the execution – Maria Krzywonos, of the Social Insurance Institution.
