Majdanek and Citadel were not only places for torture,
Where the stench of fiery furnaces poisoned the air.
The “Stalags” brought in a huge profit
For the disgusting German butchers.
The murderers, shaking with their greed,
Have stolen everything from the tormented prisoners –
Rings, trinkets, golden teeth, earrings, and watches.
The world has never seen such pillage!
We will call the Fascist monsters to answer for their crimes.
There is no mercy for the bandits.
