MASS GRAVE:

  • "She saw the guards take Romanian Jews towards the vineyards, she saw them shot and dragged to the big pit dug by those who were "requisitioned". Her eyes, vast and blue, have kept in memory the horror of these few days of shooting. Three quarters of an hour into the testimony, she agrees to take us to the location of the pit. Together, through the dark earth and tall grass, we cross the field on foot. She points to spot on the ground where the mass grave holds nearly 100 murdered Jews. We are in the middle of an open field, no place to hide, no indication of a crime scene. Renata takes down the GPS coordinates of the mass grave.  Excerpt from Travel Log of Yahad-In Unum, May 2016 [May 2016]
