Throughout the German occupation I worked as a master boiler-man at the State Gunpowder Plant in Pionki. A camp was set up on the grounds of the factory. I don’t know the number of prisoners detained there, nor do I know whether they were Jews only. I don’t know any details regarding the conditions they experienced in the camp. I can just confirm that many of these prisoners came to work in the boiler house, escorted by “Ukrainians”; they were gaunt and shabby, and also starved. I heard that they were very badly treated.
