Warsaw, 15 June 1950. Andrzej Janowski recordedthe testimony of the person named below, who testified as follows:

Place of residence Warsaw, Tamka Street 45, flat 8

During the Warsaw Uprising I was in the southern Śródmieście. On about 22 August 1944 I encountered four men who managed to escape from aleja Szucha, where they had been employed in a warehouse containing the clothing of people who had been executed in the Jordan garden at Bagatela Street. During the conversation I learned that before their escape, the number of men’s clothes had exceeded three thousand. Those people, whose surnames I do not recall, were heard during the Uprising by a delegate of the District Court who was collecting evidence in the case concerning German crimes committed during the Uprising.

I wrote about the above and about driving women in front of German tanks, which had taken place on 5 August at Piusa Street, to the periodical Barykada [Barricade] (issue 13 of 24 August 1944), under the title “What is going on at aleja Szucha?” but the censors from the Town Major’s office crossed out the number of three thousand victims.

Previously, in the middle of August, I encountered Jerzy Pepłowski (now deceased), who in the first days of August had been hiding out at Bagatela Street 13.

During the time when he was hiding in the attic of the house at Bagatela Street 13, Pepłowski saw executions carried out by the Germans in the first days of the Uprising in the Jordan garden at Bagatela Street. During one of these executions, Pepłowski saw how the Germans brought some hundred women to the premises of the garden, forced them to undress, ordered them to lie down and executed them this way with automatic weapons.

At this I conclude my account of German crimes committed during the Warsaw Uprising about which I know. .
