I wish to testify against Dr. Fischer, who served as a doctor in the concentration camp in Auschwitz.
I was sent to the camp in Auschwitz in November 1943. Upon our arrival at the station in Birkenau, we were segregated by Dr. Fischer. Some of us were told to go to the right, and some to the left. During the segregation, he beat people with a truncheon. Of about 2,000 people, about 900 were left. The rest was taken in cars to the gas chambers and then to the crematorium.
In Birkenau the task of segregating people was also carried out by Dr. Fischer. Those who were stronger were sent to work, the rest was sent to the gas chambers and the crematorium.
In Jawiszowice near Brzeszcz, ten kilometers away from Auschwitz, there was the concentration camp known as Auschwitz III. Until November 1944 Dr. Fischer would go to the camp to carry out segregations: every two, three weeks in the hospital and once a month in the whole camp. Later the segregations were carried out by Dr. König.
I didn’t see the ill-treatment of prisoners during the segregations.
I have read the report before signing.
