Entrevista del testigo

Stanislav R. evokes: "I was in the field the day of the mass shooting and I was arrested by the Germans. I tried to run away but I was caught for the shootings. So I was taken to dig the pit. At that time, the Jews had already been shot. Other conscripted villagers and I put the bodies in it." (Witness N°318, interviewed in May, 2011)
