The Germans from the commandant's headquarters spoke some Russian, some German. Their cook was from Check Republic, there were the Germans there, and they changed each other; those who have been at war they saw a true war. There was a boy of 14 years old, so a German came up and hugged him, pressed to heart and told, «I have the same son». SS-men were like this. And sometimes our policemen were worse. We didn’t have them, but the people told us.
