Witness interview

Witness interviewed: 1 (N°1482). Ivan Pavlovych V. (N°1482): "When I came, I saw the children and the women forced to undress. The women were ashamed and did not want to remove their clothes. They were hit with rifle butts. Then they told them to go to the edge of the pit and they shot them. In the melee some fell into the pit alive. They tried to get out but were shot in the head."
