Stanislav R.: "I was in the field the day of the mass shooting and was arrested by the Germans. I tried to run away but I was caught in time for the shootings. I was taken to dig the pit. The Jews had already been shot. Other conscripted villagers and I put the bodies in the pit." (Witness N°318, interviewed in May, 2011)
