The Dogs are Evil

Gorodets Labour Camp: July 20th - 29th

We stayed at the “main” building. However, our duties required us to venture beyond the house walls. There was only one entrance - and that was also the exit. At that exit, there were two dogs. One was a large black and especially angry dog. The other, tan in colour, was smaller but barked just as loud. The dogs petrified us throughout the camp - even after repeatedly being told that dogs were completely harmless.

The distance to the spring was a hundred meters down slope. Even if you managed to sneak past the dogs with an empty bucket going to the spring, there was no chance in hell you could get by them when you returned. One time I was carrying two buckets. The dog stole one of them and drank half the contents. Bummer - quarter of the hard work had went to waste.

The “washrooms” - two nice wooden hole-in-the-ground toilet boxes - had locks on both the inside and the outside. The outer locks just kept the door in place - as a method to lock somebody in, they were useless. At night, Janos “preferred” to create his waterfall off the 2nd floor balcony (he never actually did it, did he?).
