In Truth in Ash, we hear Janek's story after the camp. He escapes during the Death Marches and then joins the Polish army. By coincidence, he meets up with Mihael who exhorts him to come with him and wreak vengance on Franz. However, Janek refuses, for he believes that Franz reformed. In the process the men are set upon by lynch mob and janek is stabbed. Though not fatal, he does not seek help and allows himself to bleed to death in a poignant suicide.
