Witness interview

Saveli G. : "This pit was 15m long and 3m wide. The Jews positioned themselves around the pit. I recognized some Jews who worked with me. There were mothers who threw their children in the pit. The Jews arrived at the edge of the pit in groups while the others waited in the trucks. The Germans formed a corridor with dogs. The Jews were clothed when shot." (Witness N°1034, interviewed in August, 2010)
