Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 1. n(°1266).Piotr F (N°1266): “The Jews were brought here to the kolkhoze, the ones who couldn’t walk were taken to the execution site on carts. It was during winter and there was a lot of snow. We had to help them walk. If they fell, they were shot. After that, the Germans decided from the day of the shooting to prepare all the executions. The Jews stayed three or four days in the kolkhoze. The ones who were too sick were taken to the execution site on carts. The Jews had to get undressed and to arrange themselves in a column of five people because one bullet killed five people at the same time. The mothers had to hold the little children in order that the five heads could be aligned at the same height.”
