Witness interview

Anonymous tells us: "They waited not far away [from the pit]. One approached the pit, then another one, then another one. There was one who escaped, I remember very well, I still see him, I’ll remember this all my life. (…) [They shot him] His body rolled like a ball." (Witness n°164, Anonymous, met in Holovchyntsi on August 08,2005)
