    Oral history interview with Yahad-In Unum interviewee 184R


    Interview Summary
    A Russian man, born in 1928, discusses his experiences in Kagalnitskaia (Rostov Oblast), Russia before and during WWII; the German attacks in July 1942 and the subsequent occupation of Rostov Oblast; Jewish evacuees from Moldavia and Ukraine; the actions of Russian police and their German commanders; the killings which took place at the end of July 1942 and were conducted by the local police, not the Germans (the interviewee only heard about the killings); a man by the name of Astakhov who witnessed the killings; how some Jewish evacuees lived on farms and moved about freely; his uncertainty about whether Jews were the victims of the killings, as he was too young to differentiate who was who by ethnicity; a school teacher by the name of Korochkin who, after the war, self-identified as a Jew; the German commandant who visited the school where the local children were learning German; the theft of rifles and ammunition from the Germans by local children; the liberation of the region in February 1943; and how after liberation the police collaborators either retreated with the Germans or were captured and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for being traitors.
