In September 1944, a 10,000-strong unit of Polish partisans stayed for three days in State Forests in the village of Lewki, Ruda Maleniecka commune. After the units had left, two Polish partisans came and announced that a Polish partisan, whose name they didn’t give me, was buried in my walk of the forest. In 1945, the [dead partisan’s] family arrived; they recognized their son and buried him in the cemetery in Lipa, Ruda Maleniecka commune. I don’t know the reason why he was killed because I didn’t see [it happen], nor did I know what his name was. When his family recognized him, [it turned out that] his name was Adam Jaskólski.
