It was all, when we left the camp at Bankau, the road was just like that with ice. You could hardly walk on it, we were just slipping. Then we started to walk through the snow and we had no overcoats.

We didn't have any more clothes than we had at the camp. We were freezing. At night they'd put us into barns, with cattle and that. Well that wasn't so bad, there was a little bit of heat in there.
