Witness interview

Ivan Tykhonovich P. interviewed by Yahad: "YIU: You said that the Jewish police first gathered men to be shot? How did this happen?
W: The Jews were told that there was a meeting for them in the center. The rabbi was there also. Nearly one hundred men went and the rabbi gave a speech. As soon as all of the men were there, the police surrounded them. Immediately cars arrived. These men were told that they were going to work in Kovel and Holoby. But in reality, they were taken to the slaughterhouse behind the cemetery and were shot there." (Witness N°1456, interviewed in Melnytsya, on April 28, 2012).
