Panas P. remembered: "There was an order to shoot all the Jews. As I told you before while grazing the cows I saw them being brought in line having their hands tied with rope on the other bank of the river. They brought them to the pit, made them undress completely, get down into the pit and lie down. Then, a German shot them one by one inside the pit. After, he went to take some rum or vodka, who knows. And that is all. " (Eyewitness N°1473, interviewed in Chetvertnya, on May 03, 2012)
From the field researches Yahad-In Unum found out that a closed ghetto was created straight away after Germans’ arrival. The Jews fit to work were subjected to forced labor in the fields. During the aktion carried out by Germans and helped by local police 120 Jews native to Chetvertnya and nearby villages were slaughtered in the pit dug on purpose.
