Witness interview

Volodymyr V. told: “What was the difference between the “anti-Jews” and “pro-Jews”?
V.: There were several reasons for that. Some thought that Jews lived better because they were traders. Others said that the Jews were of another religion that killed Jesus Christ, and that’s why it was not a sin to kill a Jew.” (Witness N°179, interviewed in Kosiv, on August 11, 2005)
