Witnesses interviewed: 6 (N°562, 563, 564, 565, 566, 567). Including two eyewitnesses (N°562, 563). Mikhail B. (N° 566): "On the 17th of March, the Germans gathered all the Jews and Russian men from the age of 15. The Russian women stayed home. The Germans went from one house to another in order to take them all. They set the Jewish houses on fire. After everyone was gathered, they separated the Russians from the Jews, who were taken first to the schoolyard and then to Lyozno in order to be shot. Half of the Jews were shot in Lyozno and the other in Kolyshki."
