Witnesses interviewed: 4. (N°174, 175, 176, 177). Grigoriy Semyonovich Sh. (N°175): "In September, the Jews were all gathered, house by house, and taken towards Golubaya Dacha in a column. They remained calm and took all they were able to carry with them. The Germans had taken them all from their homes. The elderly and the sick were not many, and followed on wagons, they were rolling at the end of the column... there were over 2000 people in the column."

B162-2400. "During the first hours of the day, the members of the SS arrived in the ghetto with their trucks and randomly loaded prisoners, men, women and children, onto the truck and drove them away from the place. They were directly driven to the execution pits that had already been dug by Russian prisoners of war. The shootings started in the morning and drew to an end in the afternoon of the same day. On this day, the ghetto was completely liquidated."
