I met the accused Maria Mandl in 1940 at Ravensbrück. At the time she oversaw prisoners. In the summer of 1942 I personally saw the accused kick a Roma woman for having some potato peels on her that she wanted to cook. The accused was a great sadist and she beat prisoners for the slightest offense or kicked them until they lost consciousness.

I have testified.

The report was read out, accepted and signed.
