In Sokołowice, on 11 September 1948 at 2.00 p.m. I, Czesław Błajszczur from the Citizens’ Militia Station in Koszyce, acting on the instruction of the Deputy Prosecutor pursuant to Article 20 of the provisions introducing the Code of Criminal Procedure (KPK), Article 257 of the KPK, due to the absence of the Judge, taking into account that any delay could lead to a loss of traces or evidence of the crime, which would have been obliterated before the arrival of the Judge, following the procedures set out in Articles 235–240, 258 and 259 of the KPK, with the participation of witness Jan Bracisiewicz from the Citizens’ Militia Station in Koszyce, whom I advised of the obligation to attest to the consistency of the report with the actual course of proceedings by his own signature, interviewed the person named below as a witness. Having been advised of the significance of the oath, the right to refuse to testify due to the reasons provided in Article 104 of the KPK, and the criminal liability for making false declarations as stated in Article 140 of the Penal Code, the witness took the oath and testified as follows:

Age 26
Place of birth Przemyków, Koszyce commune
Religious affiliation Roman Catholic
Occupation farmer
Place of residence Przemyków, Koszyce commune, Pińczów district

With regard to the present matter, I know the following: I testify that in May 1942 the German gendarmerie took me to the labor camp for junacy [young men] in the town of Witów, Koszyce commune, in order to carry out land reclamation and other jobs. In the camp, there were about 200 young men from Pińczów district, which was the Miechów district during the German occupation. During my time in the labor camp, from 1942 to 1943, one person was executed. He was Tadeusz Józimczyk, aged 20, a butcher by trade, residing in Koszyce. He was shot dead by the German gendarmerie in the town of Sienniki.

In the same year, about 24 people from the labor camp for young men were sent to the penal camp in Dębica and the penal camp in Kraków. Whether or not any of those young men were murdered by the Germans in the penal camp I do not know. The labor camp for young men in Witów lasted for seven months under the leadership of a German SS-man, who resided in Koszyce.

I would like to mention that after I had finished my duty for junacy, in 1943 or [19]44 – I cannot remember the exact date – Stanisław Skowron, a farmer, was shot dead together with his wife in Piotrowice, Koszyce commune. I cannot remember any other murders and I do not know the name of the former leader of the labor camp for young men in Witów. In the said camp we were tortured and beaten by the German gendarmerie.

At that the report was concluded and signed after being read out.
