(N°661): "They were taken away in a column. The shootings took place close to the railway station. My father ran along the column, looking for my mother. But he didn’t find her. At once, he raised his head and he saw trucks that were transporting the elderly, and those who had babies. My mother saw my father and their looks crossed each other. They were deaf-mute, so they said goodbye to each other in sign language."
