    ... the Jews of Chrzanow were deported. THE JUDENRAT AND THE GERMAN AUTHORITIES Contacts between the Judenrat and the local German officials were carried out on more than the official level. The Judenrat had close relations with some of the Ger-man officials, thanks to various gifts and bribes. However, the Judenrat's closest contacts were with the police, headed by Oberleutenant Schindler. An intelligent German, he understood thoroughly how to profit from the situation and received a steady income from the Judenrat, along with numerous gifts from dozens of Jewish families in exchange for taking care of the most trivial matters. He was false through and through, although he pretended to be a friend of the Jews. At the last, however, he showed his true colors. The liaison ...

Finally an incident should be mentioned which the survivors from Chrzanow may not know of. There are Jews from Chrzanow who still believe that Schindler was a friend of the Jews. After the police, led by their commander Schindler, had com-pleted the final annihilation of Chrzanow Jews, they had themselves photographed at the Chrzanow market place, their faces beaming with pleasure.

    ... Jewish homes, searching for ter-rified Jewish girls, dragging them out of their hiding places, and taking them to Sosnowiec and thence to the local transit camp. Afterward the young women, along with similar victims from other towns, were transported to various labor camps. At the same time the discriminatory regulations against Jews were increased. The German police, headed by Schindler, began checking for the most trivial "sins," such as buying an egg or a chicken from a peasant woman, or selling something for-bidden to a Gentile. The police filled out reports and punished the "guilty" with a small fine.
