Ivan B. recalls: "My school friends and I saw a column of Jews who were coming out of the ghetto by the gate near the river. The Jews were not wearing much, walking by foot or in sleighs and were guarded by drunk Germans as well as Vlassov soldiers. They were killed during the winter next to the municipal cemetery."
