Entrevista del testigo

Nikolay M.: “The Jews were killed in a grave on the outskirts of the village, near the linen factory. I saw the shooting from about 300 meters away. I saw how the Jews went up to the grave and heard gunfire. I couldn’t see very well. I left at the beginning of the shooting. I remember how cold it was.” (Witness N°645, interviewed in Gory, on June 19, 2013).

During the Soviet period in the 1930s, the majority of the Jews were worked as artisans, in agriculture or in the flax factory. There was a kolkhoz and a Yiddish school. At the end of the 1920s, there were 355 Jews in the village. The German occupation began on July 12, 1941.
