On 2 October 1947 in Łódź, Investigating Judge of the Third Region of the District Court, S. Krzyżanowska, heard the person named below as a witness. Having been advised of the criminal liability for making false declarations and of the wording of Article 107 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, the witness testified as follows:

Name and surname Ewa Walecka
Age 24
Parents’ names Antoni and Wanda
Place of residence Łódź, Śródmiejska Street 22
Occupation clerk in the National Bank of Poland
Religious affiliation Roman Catholic
Criminal record none
Relationship to the parties none

From among the former members of the Auschwitz crew whose surnames were read out to me, I know only two names:

1) Erich Muhsfeldt (no. 64 from the list), whom I came across at the time of my arrival in Majdanek in January 1943. I don’t know whether Muhsfeldt was also was also at Majdanek until the end of my stay there – i.e. April 1944 – but I have the impression that he was delegated to Auschwitz before then. I didn’t have any direct contact with Muhsfeldt, of course, but I know that he was the head of the crematorium at Majdanek. I worked initially in the laundry and then cleaned in the headquarters and in the apartment of the Majdanek camp commandant. Firstly, for a commandant named Florstedt, and later for Weiss.

When I was working in the laundry, I saw Muhsfeldt. He often came to the head of the laundry. Muhsfeldt was brutal. He kicked and beat prisoners for no reason, and his very appearance aroused general fear, for he threatened that at a moment’s notice he would throw the prisoners into the crematorium furnace alive. If he actually did this, I didn’t hear anything [to that effect].

2) Alice Orlowski (no. 69 from the list). I met her in the laundry kommando. Orlowski was a brutal woman who would beat the prisoners for no reason.

The report was read out.
