Ivan U. explains: "When I came there the following day I could see the last trace of burned bodies. It was very terrifying. After, the pit was covered. However, during the rain the bones drifted into the estuary. Someone told me that the Jews were shot by the German settlers. There were 17. Two Jews had to throw the bodies into the ravine and were promised not to be killed. Nevertheless, they were also shot." (Witness N°1576, interviewed in Odradna Balka, on August 13, 2012)
"The execution took place west of the hamlet, about a hundred meters from Ivan Berkuts’s house, in the hollow. It was done by the Germans settlers from Tartakai, led by a German officer, who shot them with automatic guns. In all, more than 200 people were shot including little children, women and the elderly. A pile of victims’ bodies (some who were only injured) was covered with straw and burnt." [Act drawn up by Soviet extraordinary commission in 1944; RG-22.002M/7021-69/75]
