Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 6 (N° 1189.1190, 1191, 1192, 1197, 1198). Yevgeniya Yossifovna L. (N°1190): "One could hear the gunfire, because it wasn’t far away. Back then, there were not many houses to deaden the sound. We couldn’t see anything, but the children were running through the streets, shouting that the Jews were being shot."
