    Interview Summary
    The interviewee, a Ukrainian woman born in 1929, discusses events surrounding the Holocaust in Gorokhov (Horokhiv), Volyns'ka oblast', Ukraine; an incident that occurred in 1942 when German troops, in reaction to the killing of a German soldier by partisans, seized her and other worshippers during a service at a Russian Orthodox church, and later released them; how there were many Jews and a synagogue in Gorokhov before the war; how when the Germans came, the town's Jews were confined to a ghetto, which was surrounded by wooden walls topped by barbed wire; how during the day, Jews were taken out in groups to work and at night Ukrainians threw food over the walls; her memories of seeing trucks moving through the center of the city taking Jews to be shot; and how she heard about the shooting site, where a rabbi told the Jews that it was their fate to die.
