Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 3. (N°23, 24, 25). Yekaterina L. (N°23): "The women and the children were cooped up until the winter in a house which was opposite my home. That’s the reason I saw the Jews leaving the camp. They were killed dressed, really close to here, not far from a vegetable garden. The bodies stayed there all the night and the following day they were transported on waggons to an antitank trench which was near a hill."
