I was in the Auschwitz camp from 14 December 1942 to 13 March 1943. I worked in the DAW [Deutsche Ausrüstungswerke, armament factory] kommando, and I lived in block 18. I can’t talk about any of the war criminals from the list read to me, because I didn’t know them by name. If I were shown pictures of the members of the Auschwitz armed crew, maybe then I could say something.

This is my testimony which I read and signed.
