The interviewee, a Ukrainian woman born in 1932, discusses events in Skalat, Ternopil's'ka Oblast, Ukraine; the prewar presence of many Jews, who constituted about half the town's population; an initial "aktsia" soon after the arrival of German forces, during which some Jews were killed and others fled; seeing bodies of two women at a Jewish doctor’s house, where she used to deliver milk from her family cow; the subsequent confining of the remaining Jews in a building, which had been used as a Polish army barracks; and a nighttime attack at a building site by partisans from the Kovpak unit, which freed many Jews who then fled to the forest.
