German archives

“In a forest near Chepetivka, an action against the Jews was perpetrated. There were lots of shell holes in the forest. The Jews were driven there by covered trucks. They were very tight. Then, the Jews (men, women, children and elderly people) were put to the shell holes in order that their faces were in the direction of the holes. They were killed there by a bullet in to the neck”.
