Andrey Yermolenko, born in 1930 in Ukraine, describes working near a pit from which lime was extracted; seeing groups of Jews taken to the pit, made to undress, and then shot from behind by German guards; the bodies being set on fire when the pit was full; the smell of burned flesh; hearing screams during the execution; how none of the prisoners could escape because of the presence of the guards; and the removal of the clothing in wagons after the execution.

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.
