According to Maria V. (Witness N°1841), born in 1925, interviewed by the Yahad-In Unum team, who witnessed the shootings from her house, situated near the cemetery, the Bogorodchany Jews were shot at the Jewish cemetery. It appears that they were brought to the shooting site in groups of 10-20 people. As it was rather common throughout the entire district, the Jews were shot into the pit while walking on a plank.
