Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 4. (N°208, 217, 219, 221). Andrey R. (N°208): "I didn’t follow the column, but when I arrive next to the scene, 30 meters away, I saw a pit which was already filled in, and a second being dug by the villagers. The Jewish men had to line up at the edge of the pit and were shot in the back. They were taken to the execution site fifty by fifty."
