Eugenija S. reminisces: "Lithuanian partisans registered all the Jews and arrested them. They should have visited them at home. Everybody knew each other, they knew how many children Jews had had, they couldn’t hide.
Y.U.: What happened with Jewish furniture and other belongings?
Eugenija: They just left it behind. Other people moved in their houses. Some valuables were sold in the barn. In one of the houses they established the office of local administration. There was a barn in the village and they brought Jewish valuables and sold them there. It took about a month to sell it. Local administration officers might have taken some belongings."
