Oral history interview with Gelena Stashkevich

Oral History | Accession Number: 2011.437.53 | RG Number: RG-50.674.0053

Gelena Stashkevich, born in 1933 in the village of Galiny, Belarus, discusses the absence of Jews in the village; her familiarity with Jews who worked in shops in Oshmyany (Ashmiany, Belarus) prior to the German occupation; the forced relocation of Jews to a ghetto in Oshmyany; seeing the burial pit at the Lyugovshchina execution site; guards who spoke in Russian forcing Jews to “graze” on grass around the pit; and hearing a long period of shooting after guards ordered her and other onlookers to leave the area.

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