Entrevista del testigo

Vera O. evokes: "After the Germans settled down in the village, all the Jews were gathered in the ghetto surrounded by barbed wire. At that time there were no houses. It was a field fenced in with barbed wire and the Jews lived there. I think they gave them something to eat. After they were closed in the ghetto they were forced to wear distinguishing, yellow marks. The policemen took them in the center of the village to do various work, cleaning the streets for example." (Witness N°163, interviewed in Usvyaty, on May 31, 2011).
