With regard to the matter at hand I can provide the following information: throughout the German occupation I was at home in Bór-Osiedle. With regard to the execution of the Poles in Bór, Bliżyn commune, I can state the following: In February 1940, in the forest in Bór-Osiedle, the Germans began to execute the Poles whom they brought to the forest in trucks. The executions, which lasted four days, that is from 12 February 1940 to 16 February 1940, were carried out over the pit dug by the Germans. At first the number of those whom the Germans had killed remained unknown. All I know is that 3 to 4 trucks of people arrived here every day. During this operation the Germans cordoned off the whole area in order to prevent people from approaching the execution site. It was only after the liberation that the files containing the lists of the executed made it possible to establish that the Germans had killed 436 people in the forest near Bór-Osiedle.

At this the report was concluded, read out and signed.
