Witnesses interviewed: 6 (N°562, 563, 564, 565, 566, 567). Including two eyewitnesses (N°562, 563). Mikhail B. (N° 566): "On March 17, the Germans gathered all the Jews and Russian men aged 15 and above. The Russian women stayed home. The Germans went from house to house to get everyone out. They then set the Jewish houses on fire. After everyone was assembled, they separated the Russians from the Jews, who were taken to the schoolyard and then on to Lyozno to be shot. Half of the Jews were shot in Lyozno and the other in Kolyshki."
