Oral History | Accession Number: 2009.24.159 | RG Number: RG-50.589.0159

The interviewee, a Ukrainian woman born in 1928, discusses events in Berezove, Rivnens'ka oblast, Ukraine; the lenient treatment of Ukrainians by German forces; Ukrainian police and their uniforms; the ditch where Jews were shot; partially observing the shooting of Jews; seeing a ditch partially filled with bodies; witnessing the motions of the victims not yet dead and their gasping sounds ("dykhaniya"); how only the Jews with good clothing were required to undress; the subsequent separate shooting by Ukrainian police of a Jewish woman named Etka; and her father's refusal, because of fear, to give refuge to a Jew who came to their house, although he provided food.
