“The shooting took place in February 1942. The Jews were first locked up in a little barn. Hemp was burned in a ravine. Then, whole families were taken to the ravine and they were shot with an automatic gun. Some were burned dead and some were just hurt. In most cases, the children were thrown in alive in the ravine in front of their parents. The little children were poisoned. After their deaths, they were immediately burned in the ravine.”
