Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 2. (N°43, 44). Stanislawa R. (N°43): "I remember Polish people helped the Germans to catch Jews. I saw the column in the city full of men, women, and elderly people. When a Jews was tired, they killed him with a shotgun. Germans and Ukrainians gendarmes were watching the column. I know that Jews were burned in Sobibor later. There were people who were throwing Jews in the pits.. I saw 3 bodies. I didn’t follow the column. I had a neighbor who collaborated with the Germans. she gave them a jewish woman and their children. a German killed them. One month later, my neighbor was killed too."
