2. I first knew Helena Koper at Birkenau, having met her there in October, 1944. Koper left Birkenau shortly afterwards. On arrival at Belsen I saw Koper, who was then an assistant Blockälteste in Block 27. She later became Blockälteste in Blocks 205 and 224, and for a short period was a camp policewoman. I was in Block 3.

3. Some time in March, 1945, whilst at Belsen Camp, I saw Koper beat a girl prisoner with a whip, because the girl asked for some more soup. When the girl ran away Koper chased after her, hitting her all the time. I do not how the name of the girl prisoner.

4. I have since seen this woman Koper in No. 3 Camp, Belsen. I would describe her as about 38 years of age, 5 ft. 6 ins in height, broad built, stout and black frizzy hair. I do not know what block she is in at the moment.
