Hello, I was just reading some eyewitnesses accounts given by Soviet citizens and fighters in the Red Army who fought against German soldiers until the latter's capitulation on February 2, 1943. I came across the following statement, and it really threw me for a loop: Try as I may, I cannot understand what this portion of the statement means. I've searched in various mono- and bilingual dictionaries, but I have yet to come across a similar expression or construction. I believe it's the um jeden part that is really confusing me. What does this mean? "One felt sorry for everyone who was detailed/assigned to it." Is this right? Thanks in advance for your help.
