Taisa T. recalls: "The Jews were being locked up in the club. Then the policemen from the others villages (with their dogs) marched them to the edge of the village. We saw with my mother a Jewish friend who screamed in our direction "Help us! Help us!" Her name was Rosa. A policeman saw her screaming and he tied her to the cart by her hair." (Witness N°941, met in Ingulets, on June 02, 2010)
"In the area of the Soviet village Ingulets, about 1,800 Russian, especially Jews, were shot on June 10 and 11, 1942." [B162-7173]
Ingulets is located 150 kilometers (93 miles) southwest of Dnipropetrovsk. It was occupied by Germans on August 06, 1941. Around 1,000 Jews remained in Ingulets at the start of the occupation, some of them fled meanwhile.
After the occupation of the village, Ukrainian anti-Semites began to persecute the Jews. Several dozen Jews, accused of being Communists and Soviet activists, were shot. Shortly after, a ghetto was established. In December 1941, the Germans organized a mass execution of elderly Jews. On May 20, 1942, around 300 young Jews were transported to a labor camp in the village of Novoselivka, in order to build the road Kryvyi Rih-Dnipropetrovsk. On June 10– 11, 1942, the Germans executed the remaining Jews of the ghetto. In all, around 1,150 Jews were shot.
