“When I think about this rampart of burnt bodies in Wola, it seems to me that it was my worst experience. When I think about how a woman with two children came out from under those heads that flew, fell, and this tankette jumped out, and the rest is indescribable, it seems to me that it was the worst experience, so when I think about how I see Baczyński with this hole in his head, and only then did I see him, that he was sitting, and this Koperski was screaming and me to [odszedł] from this window, because there is a sniper there, and here he is already falling and immediately lies on this carpet, and this hole, and I look at the brain, ma’am, of a human, I don’t know if that was the most unpleasant thing. Well, yesterday I spoke to a man,” she recalled.
