“On September 22th, 1942, the execution of the Jewish population took place in camps called “ghettos”. 980 people were killed 1km from the village of Mlyniv in a ravine near the dike of Muravitsa: women, men and the elderly. On that day, the chief of the Gestapo from Dubno – Amerstein – came to Mlyniv to join Schneider with four trucks full of policemen from Mlyniv. They went to the camps in these trucks. They loaded 30 people in each truck and beat them. They took them 1km from Mlyniv in a ravine near the dike of Muravitsa where a grave had been dug. They took them in groups of 10 people 10 meters from the grave, facing the ground, and shot them in the neck with four submachine guns while the Gestapo took pictures.”
