“So we walked in, they brought us to a certain area, this column, 200 people were there. Then was another column a few feet apart and another 200. So they brought several thousand  people there and that was that. Then they informed us, if we had to relieve ourselves, we can do it on the grass but you go there, do your business and come back. Don’t step out too far, the guard will think you are trying to escape and shoot you. Anyway, that went on, multiple columns of prisoners. They started processing the first. They didn’t give a damn what I was called or not, we were there. So it went on, some people were hungry so we asked the guard that guarded that particular column, there were one or two to every group, every block. Can we get something, some water? No. Somehow it came that we could send other prisoners. Other prisoners came and said if you want me to get you something, some coffee or something, I’ll get it for you. That stopped within a short while because some of the prisoners did not come back. They had no money of their own and this was the first time they had a chance to go in and buy some coffee for themselves. Alright so it went on, by the time it got dark, before it got completely dark, they marched us away, they simply said they’re done, to certain areas where there were empty barracks. (Interviewer: Were these army barracks?) These were one story barracks, if you have seen pictures of a concentration camp be it Auschwitz or, one story barracks.”
