 Olga Mauleová (1925)
One time we entered a village with horses and sleighs, recon hadn’t found anything, and when we entered the village, they started shooting at us

Shooting at partisans

“So we set out across the fields to the village at midnight, the snow up to our knees. When we entered the village, we suddenly came under fire from the Germans. The horses turned on the road and started [running - ed.] back to the forest. They kept shooting at us - it was probably just a patrol because they only had incendiary bullets. We only saw little lights. And we rode into the forest, so no one was hurt, there were no injuries, nothing. I don’t know, I didn’t [pay attention - ed.] to where we went afterwards. Brest-Litovsk was surrounded by swamps, that was terrible.”
