Witness interview

Anna D. (N°33): "The Aktion area was at the end of my street. All middle-aged Jews were gathered to work. Then, they were taken to the execution site which was there, behind the house, while others dug the pits."

Soviet archives

RG-22.002M/7021-67/82. "2,000 people were shot and buried in the pits situated next to the Jewish cemetery and in the cemetery. I was employed as a cleaning lady for the Ukrainian police and for the German gendarmery. I know who shot the Jews, because after the shooting they bragged and told each other how many Jew they had killed."

German archives

B162-6359 to B162-6363. B162-6360. "As far as I remember there might have been a big action taken against the Jews on March 20 or 21 in 1943. Busk should have been made "judenfrei" or "judenrein" like we used to call it in those times."
