    ... man, that he was too conscientious, too responsible. That was why he stopped confiding in Cuker. In light of these facts it is clear that all of the subsequent labor recruitment actions and resettlements were organized and carried out by the central office in Sosnowiec and its delegates, with the assistance of trusted officials, who cooperated with the police in Bendzin and Sosnowiec. Cuker's end was tragic. Together with Nussbaum and Teichler, he was sent to Auschwitz by the Chrzanow police. A short time later came the news that all three had died of heart failure. After Cuker's arrest, the books were checked by the Gestapo men Kranuy and Freitag. This audit was undertaken because of several anonymous letters, in which thejudenrat was accused of taking money in return for apartments ...

     The Year 1942 afraid of Cuker, who was more intelligent than he was, and painful though it may be to acknowledge, he brought about Cuker's downfall. Without any investigation or discussion, Cuker, Nussbaum, and Teichler were taken to the police station, murderously beaten, and sent to Auschwitz. Several days later telegrams were sent by the Auschwitz camp administration to their families, an-nouncing the death of their husbands and fathers, even listing a "disease" from which they had died. This serious blow, which had in fact been carefully calculated, was felt by the en-tire population of Chrzanbw. The police later related that ...
