Witness interview

Myroslav R. recalls: “In 1941, from my house, I saw a column passing through the big street. It came from Skole 14km away. There were perhaps 150 people in this column. There were women with babies in their arms. The column was escorted by Germans. There was a truck at the beginning and at the end of this column. It stopped past the shed where the Jews used to live, then passed another house where others Jews were living and the inhabitants were thrown into this column.” (Witness N°1826, interviewed in Nyzhnye Synyovydne, on September 1, 2013).
