I was imprisoned at Auschwitz from August 1940 to 20 January 1945. From July 1942 until the very end I worked in the prisoners’ kitchen. During the latter period of time, suspect Medefind would often drive up and bring bread to the kitchen warehouse. Presently, I do not know when this occurred. He would usually bring bread to the kitchen warehouse once or twice a week. Since I worked in the warehouse with meat, I did not have dealings with him and paid no attention to him, so I have no information about Medefind’s conduct and behavior. I also do not know what reputation he had.

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