Guardian’s Oath!


“No, but a guardian is believed with an oath only if the event is not a well-known one,” answered Rabbi Dayan. “If the guardian claims the item was stolen in broad daylight in a public place, though, we do not suffice with an oath; he must bring witnesses. Similarly, if he claims there was a large fire, he would have to bring proof, since this is easily ascertainable by witnesses.” (C.M. 294:2-3)
