Let me go back for a second and ask you...


a couple of questions about, before and after the march. You were in Jaworzno.


Which is not listed on here.

Is it? ???, Gronow, Kreising... Kreising is in Posen. Posen. Ausch... Well it's Auschwitz.

Oh, so it's a Auschwitz satellite.

Yeah, under Auschwitz. See Auschwitz. Auschwitz, Jaworzno.

Oh there, that's it. Okay. Um, when you were in Auschwitz-Birkenau and they selected you for the work detail to go to Jaworzno...


did they just pick you off the Appellplatz? Did they come to your barracks and say, everybody in this barracks...

No, no, everything outside. Everything outside.

So you were on the Appellplatz and they said...


this group go into the train.

Um, we didn't know where we were going.

No, okay.
