Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 6. (N°278, 279, 280, 281, 282, 283). Lilya Mikhaylovna S. (N°282): "This woman then came to Kherson, to the ghetto. She went to see a boy she knew named ‘Schutzmann’ and asked him if she could take me with her, telling him that I had been brought to the ghetto by mistake. She gave him something in exchange. My grandmother had just enough time to give her my birth certificate. This woman took me with her and I never saw my grandmother again."
