    Interview Summary
    The interviewee, a Ukrainian man born in 1930, discusses how in 1942 or 1943, Jews were taken in freight cars from Rava-Rus'ka, Ukraine, and possibly from Hungary and Romania, to Belz, Ukraine where they were shot; how he observed many such trains, the so-called Judenzugs, when he tended cows in fields bordering the tracks; how for a time there were three or four trains per week; witnessing people jumping from the trains, some of whom were able to run across the fields and reach the woods while others were shot by guards on the trains; and how on one occasion he saw a young child jump from a train, remain motionless on the ground, and how later a German guard shot the child, who was then buried by four Jewish prisoners. Note: this interview was recorded on a section of the railroad track between Rava-Rus'ka and Belz in L'vivs'ka oblast', Ukraine.
