Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 1. (N°1224). Maria C. (N°1224): "Sara, a friend of mine, went to Berchad to hide. It was on Romanian territory. Sara’s two sisters were hidden in a chicken coop. The owner found them and made them go to Berchad. The family was together in the Jewish ghetto. The Jews were forced to work but they weren’t killed."
