Entrevista del testigo

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