    ... from infants to old people. Everyone was checked against a list of names. So that simultaneously they might mislead the victims and conceal their devilish plans, and also to ease their way for the confiscation of property afterwards, the devil announced from the largeness of his heart as follows : Each family could appoint one repre-sentative, who would have one hour to pack 10 kg. of belongings from their houses. This was to include all food and clothing etc. When this legal fiction had been carried out, and the dawn began to break, the order was given by the Gestapo for everyone to kneel down on their belongings with their hands

Obersturmbanfuehrer and former German Army major, Heinrich Lindner, his adjutant Bruno Ludwik, Sergeant Knol, and the Ruma-nian Germans Dr. Messner and Kutshinsky.
