Anna Y., born in 1932, remembered: “Y.U: Where the Jews were brought from?
Witness:: They were brought from this direction. There was a Jewish town there. My house was located just by the road and we could see the Jews passing by through a window. I don’t know if they were policemen or Germans who brought them. After, when the column was quite far, my bother went outside because he wanted to follow the column to take a look at what would happen to them, and I followed him. We hid in the stable and we watched trough a crack.
Y. U.: Did you see the Jews undressed, get closer to the pit and lie down on the ground into the pit?
Witness: I saw how they undressed and walked naked toward the pit. However I didn’t see how they lay down at the bottom of the pit, because I was quite far away. Those who dug the pit told us after that the Jews had to lie down one close to another; there was no space between, them.
Y. U.: How long did the shooting last?
Witness: I don’t know exactly, a little more than an hour. After, people took Jewish clothes but I didn’t take anything. I didn’t want to take the clothes of others. (Testimony N°1467, interviewed in Toykut, on May 2, 2012)
