Soviet archives

RG-22.002M/7021-44/622. "The German executioners turned a half-built, one-story stone building, owned by the local school into the Gestapo prison in which Soviet citizens were executed. In January 1942, the Germans gathered all the Jews that were in the territory of the district in this building, and shot them. The victims included the family of Pavlin, the barber, his wife Bassia Naoumovna, her 14-year old daughter Zina, his 11 year old son Naoum, and an infant that the executioners killed in the arms of his mother with the butts of their rifles."
