Witness interview

Soviet archives

RG-22.002M/7021-58/23: "Before the creation of the ghetto, the Jews were being shot in the streets. Later, the Germans burst into the Jews’ residences and took all their goods, their clothes, their furniture. Then, after a certain interval, it must have been in the August of 1941, it was announced that all Jews had to move into the ghetto."

German archives

B162/2107: "Somewhere in the forest, outside of Drogobych, a pit had been dug on site. Although I didn’t approach it very closely, I saw how the Jews were killed by the security police [Sicherheitspolizei], being helped by the Ukrainian police – but they didn’t do any of the shooting, they were just watching over it."
