Witnesses interviewed: 4. (N°96, 97, 98, 99). Including two eyewitnesses. (N°96, 98). Guennadi Vassilievich O. (N°98): "Later, we saw… I personally saw the trucks bringing the Jews here. They were lined up on the edge of this pit. I saw the machine gun in action, the gun itself was to the side, so I couldn’t really see it. It was probably sitting on the cemetery wall itself, because all of this happened between the cemetery and the river. And afterwards, we saw army officers armed with guns killing the people. This, we saw."
