Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 1. (N°100). Anatoli S. (N°100): "The children of the ghetto went for a walk on the streets. But you know, children are always children; they didn’t understand they were in a ghetto, that it was the war. The Germans called them: “Kinder, kommt her!”. The children faithfully got into the truck; the gates shut, the truck started, the exhaust fumes went to (or made for?) the bodywork. When the doors opened again, all the children were killed."

German archives

B162-1468. "On March 19th 1943, under the order of the SD, 1400 Jews and their children were shot in Krasne. The chief of the SD was called Grabe."
