Sergey P. recalls: “Closed metal trucks arrived and stopped next to these big graves. The doors were opened, blue smog came out of the truck. There were a lot of dead, naked corpses inside. The Germans wore green uniforms. There were some local policemen and some foreign policemen. They wore a white armband." (Eyewitness N°613, interviewed in Polykovichi, on April 30, 2012)

Here is what a witness says: in the spring of 1943, I was ordered by Germans to dig a pit. As it was ready, two trucks full of children aged from 3 to 12 arrived.
