« I saw from my window how 400 Jews arrived in a yard. There were men, women and children. They were brought in the direction of a grave. This grave sized 7X3X3 meters. With a military precision, the Jews had to go in the grave, had to lay tumble and were shot in the complete calm by two members of the SD who came especially for that”.
