    Oral history interview with Yahad-In Unum interviewee 78U


    Interview Summary
    The interviewee, a Ukrainian man born in 1935, describes the arrival of German troops in Ostrozhets (Ostrozec), Rivnens'ka oblast', Ukraine; how Jews were initially herded into a ghetto but soon thereafter were shot; how the one week-long shooting was carried out chiefly by Ukrainian police with machine guns; how he knew some of the victims because he had performed chores for them during the Sabbath; how, while he was watching Jews being led to the shooting area, he was seized by a guard who mistook him for a Jew, only to be saved when his grandmother intervened; how there were many Jews in the surrounding area prior to the war.
