Entrevista del testigo

Nina A. evokes: “I hid behind a tree to watch the execution which had begun before I came. The Jewish victims waited a few kilometers from the grave before being shot. There were 2 or 3 German shooters who fired in bursts at small groups of dressed victims who were positioned at the edge of the grave, in front of it. There were around 100 victims. Men, women and children. The perpetrators were in civilian clothes but spoke a language that I didn’t understand.” (Witness N°632, interviewed in Konokhovka, on June 13, 2013).

According to some sources, the killing of the Jews took place in November 1941. The Jews were gathered in the kolkhoz garden next to the Sosnovka River. The Jews were forced to dig a pit before being shot into it. According to Yahad’s witness Nina A (Witness N°632), the Jews were killed in a circle grave. The Jews were dressed and were placed at the edge of the grave facing the shooters. According to her, there were around 100 victims.  In September 1943, the Germans came back in order to burn the village.
