Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 3. (N°1186, 1187, 1188).Anatoli A (N°1188): « The Jews of this camp were brought in columns to the shooting’s place. It was in majority women, some of them carried their children and were escorted by guards and dogs. We were children and we went to see what happened, we heard some shootings and screams. When they brought these people of this camp, the children were put on a trolley and we heard a lot of screams too. We couldn’t approach but we know that the Jews dag their own grave and were shot on the board which was thrown on the middle of the grave and were killed by burst fires of machine guns”.
