Witness interview

Mykola T. explains: "I went to Lukiv to bring my brother to the hospital. I was on the way back when the policemen stopped me. They brought one Jew, then Chayka and another policeman got on my wagon and told me to take them into the forest. When we stopped in the forest, the Jew began running. One of the policemen took his rifle and shot him. Later he went over to the body and he took out his knife to remove Jew’s shoes by cutting the laces. He shot him once more and left the body in the woods. They went down to another policeman’s house and I left." ( Witness N°1438, interviewed in Lukiv, on April 23, 2012).
