Arrest and interrogation

“They were interrogating us, but each one individually. As I found out, they detained at the same time more than a thousand people in the whole Poland. That´s how it was organized. My brothers were there, too. So we ended up in the prison and they interrogated us day and night. Nonstop. Practically said, one became so dull after such a time that he felt half-dumb. During the first nights they didn´t even let us sleep. However, I knew I didn´t have any official function there. I only gave those people opportunity to live there, perform, gather, etc.”
