My memories of German crimes

One day during the German occupation, when I was walking to school, I saw a group of Poles with hands tied behind their backs. They were surrounded by German soldiers with their guns at the ready. The prisoners had sad and gloomy faces. The group stopped at the church wall.

The Germans made them kneel down and started shooting. The dead bodies were thrown onto carts, as if they were animals and not people. Other Poles buried them in a common grave in the garden behind St. Adalbert’s Church. To this day, wreaths, flowers and burning candles can be seen at the execution site. The memory of these people will last forever.
