  • Title: Testimony of Wiesław Kielar: Edek and Mala
  • Date: 1944
  • Location: Auschwitz, Poland
  • Transcript: Edkek and Mala’s meetings inside the Women’s Camp (...) at the F.K.L. [Women’s Camp] there worked a maintenance crew from the Main Camp, that consisted of, among others: Z. Baranowski, M. Kula, Z. Łachecki, Plaskura, and others, as well as, of course, Edek. Edek had some Jewish girl as his girlfriend. They would meet in the x-ray room, where Stasio from Prague worked. Dr Szuman did not perform his experiments every day, so Stasio he rented a safe room to your friends to colleagues, while he stood on watch. In the x-ray room, where they sterilized prisoners, there bloomed an underground love. (...) Edek ran to meet with Mala in the building where the x-ray was located. Mala was already waiting for him there. I was standing on the other side of the building already for some time.
