Witness interview

Leonid T. : “In October 1941, there was already some snow. The Jews were gathered in order to be sent to the shooting, which took place at the military city . Some graves had been dig outside of the city-state , I personally saw a column of one hundred people among them -- men, women and children. I remember it was the first shooting.”

“One time, I had to drive a truck with a group of seven women and three men in a forest 5km from Osipovichi. There was a grave of four meters long, three meters wide and 2.5 meters deep. The grave was freshly dug because it was not covered by snow yet. The victims had to get undressed and threw their clothes in the truck. Each member of the GFP took one person by the arm to the grave. The victims had to kneel and received a bullet in the neck. The shooters used revolvers.”
