Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 5. (N°185, 186, 187, 188, 189). Anna K (N°189): "I saw the execution with others curious children, on a little hill. Very near the pit, there was a pill of soil; the Jews went up and the Germans fired. The bodies fell down into the pit. So another group of 20 people had to go up to be shot."
