One page of sheet music of a piece entitled "Le crucifié" (The crucified) by Alex Alicouli, a pseudonym for Aleksander Kulisiewicz, and dated II.XI.44, KLS [Sachsenhausen].

The music and lyrics were written by Kulisiewicz during his imprisonment in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. The lyrics were originally composed in Polish, and the piece was titled "Ukrzyzowany 1944." Subsequently, it was translated into French. The piece was inspired by a report Kulisiewicz received from members of the French resistance upon their arrival in Sachsenhausen, about an incident that took place in Presles, France (near Nice) in the summer of 1944. According to their account, Germans stormed a resistance safe house in the town, where they found and tortured to death a three-year-old boy.
