Interviewer “Did you witness any attacks or retaliation against the Germans?” Barrish “Yes. They (concentration camp prisoners) got a hold of a couple of guards themselves and they beat them to death. And I’m sure that if they had gotten all of them they would have done the same.” “What were your orders regarding the guards?” Our orders were to take no SS prisoners. That speaks for itself because they were all SS.” Interviewer “And you followed them?” “Our orders? To the letter.”
