Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 4. (N°101, 102, 103, 104). Including one eyewitness. (N°102). Ulyana Kh. (N°103): "I worked in the Gestapo! We were sent to work there, they forced us! If we hadn’t gone, all our family would have been killed. There was a prison over there, where people were beaten extensively. Afterwards, they were forced to go out into the yard where they had to cut wood with saws. But, how were they supposed to do this with broken hands? The dogs tore people apart alive."
