Entrevista del testigo

Vera N.: "There was a clay mine in the field. In 1942, we were told that the Germans shot the Jews there. We found some bones. The bodies were probably dug up after the event. Four people were killed in all, but the main mass shooting took place at the Jewish cemetery." (Witness N°336, interviewed in May, 2010)

Nota histórica

Novoyelnya is a small village situated 60km northwest of Baranovichi. Before the war, it seems that the majority of the inhabitants were Jewish. The city was under German occupation from 1941 to 1944.
