Myroslav R. recalls: “In 1941, from my house, I saw a column passing through the big street. It came from Skole 14km away. There were perhaps 150 people in this column. There were women with babies in their arms. The column was escorted by Germans. There was a truck at the beginning and at the end of this column. It stopped past the shed where the Jews used to live, then passed another house where others Jews were living and the inhabitants were thrown into this column.” (Witness N°1826, interviewed in Nyzhnye Synyovydne, on September 1, 2013).
Nyzhnye Synyovydne is situated about 23km southwest of Stryi. After the Soviet occupation in September 1939, the village was first occupied by the Hungarian army in July 1941. In August 1941, the Germans took over and managed the town till July 1944. According to Myroslav R., witness N°1826, there were three Jewish families living in the village.
According to Myroslav R., witness N°1826, interviewed by Yahad-In Unum, a column of 150 Jews was shot near the village behind present-day location of the restaurant, Kolyba, in 1941. The witness saw the column coming from Skole, about 14km away, from his house.
