Ion B. remembers: "There were four mills in the village and each of them had a wooden wheel. They took down the wheels and afterward attached ropes to them and threw them in the river. Each wheel was attached by a rope and pulled by a tractor on the other bank of Dniester River. The Jews crossed the river using the wheels over the course of two days. There were more crossings during the night because they were afraid of being bombed during the day. The tractors pulled a sortie of ferries without turning on their headlights. Those who died near the river were buried by the villagers, as we were afraid of different diseases. Those bodies that fell down into the river were abandoned."

Vadul Raşcov was a little shtetl in Bessarabia. It is approximately 130 km northeast of the capital, Chişinău. In 1930, about 2,000 Jews lived in the village.
