Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 3. (N°204, 214, 215). Lyubov P. (N°214): "Later, the two mass graves were burnt. The ashes were sieved to verify if there was some gold. Nobody was able to come near the scene: the Germans made a diversion (or detour). But I lived near it and I was able to see the stakes and an excavator (mechanical digger) digging."
