When you were on the boxcar, did you see anybody die in the boxcar?

It was not the people there in the train, in the car. Only thing I, I hear, shot, bullet shot, you know. That's all I hear. See whoever couldn't go, they left him, and every...Whenever the SS went in the back and they shoot him and left him right there.

This is on the march. You also told me people were dying of dehydration on the train.


Of dehydration. Dehydration, no water.

Sure, no water. There's no water. They don't give 'em no water, nothing. They don't let us bring water, nobody. They want them to die.

But you didn't see anybody take a knife and kill anybody else.

No, not really.
