Holocausto por balas en cifras

On September 5, 1941, 50 male Jews were shot for failing to comply with German orders. On November, 1941, the German authorities established an enclosed ghetto in Ivenets. The ghetto was located on two very narrow streets, Mill and Shulhof. The ghetto received Jews from the surrounding villages, and during 1942, the Jews were selected and sent to other ghettos, as that of Novogrudok. The Germans liquidated the remaining ones from the Ivenets ghetto on June 9, 1942. About 800 victims were shot in a pit in a forest.
