Ivan V., born in 1929: "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.

I think that at the end of 1942 the annihilation of the Jews from the city started. During the night they were taken outside the city and shot. I think I am the only survivor of the Horodyshche camp. I stayed in the camp for a couple of months. The Sonderführer was a German […]. " [Deposition of a Jewish survivor Ben Zion P., given during the trial; B162-3879]
