Boris Ivanovich Novikov, born in 1930 in Ust-Labinsk in the former Soviet Union, describes the arrival of German forces in 1942; joining a group of homeless boys who roamed the town searching for food and shelter; seeing a column of about 100 Jews marching to a nearby fortress and hearing reports about other such columns; the sound of gunshots at the fortress area; and seeing a ditch, surrounded by German soldiers and Russian police officers, filled with hundreds of bodies.

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