Entrevista del testigo

Vasyl B., born in 1930, recalls: “The mass shootings lasted three or four days in a row. Once, I passed by and I saw it. After, I didn’t go there because the Germans could have killed me.
YIU: Where did the mass shooting that you saw take place?
W: Here, in the forest behind the railroad.
YIU: What is the name of that forest?
W: The forest is called “Savky.” (Witness N°1856, interviewed in Lanchyn, on September 9, 2013).

In October-December 1941, some Jews from Lanchyn were transferred to Nadvirna, where they were later shot. Between 200 to 400 Jews living in Lanchyn were shot to death in the forest, called Sadky, in the spring of 1942. According to eyewitness N°1856, Vasyl B., the execution lasted for 3-4 days. After being brought in trucks to the forest, the Jews were forced to undress and walk along the plank, one by one. According to the witness, there were three mass graves at the site.
