Mrs. Slepčíková, born about 1912, Košice; her first name is not given
Mrs. Slepčíková lived in Košice before the war, where she had a house in what was called the brickworks. She bought small items of haberdashery in the shops, and sold them door-to-door.
Slepčíková was interned with her parents and her four children in the labour camp in Komárno. Women and children were accommodated separately from the men. Slepčíková described how one woman in the camp was shot without reason, and how they tore the earrings from her ears. She also described the circumstances of her release from the camp, when they were recognised by a supposed “high-up from Košice” who had bought goods from them before the war, and who arranged for them to return home to Košice in an over-crowded wagon. Mrs. Slepčíková’s father and her small son died after their return from the camp. She mentioned that after the war they hanged traitors in Košice.
