MASS GRAVE: "a grave believed to contain the remains of dozens of Jews killed by the Nazis was found in western Ukraine. Along with the remains of at least 60 people, workers digging on the site of a future office complex near Netishin, a town in the Khmelnitzky Region, also found what resembled fragments of Torah scrolls. 'Torah fragments suggest that probably this was a massacre of Jews killed in 1942,' said Valeriy Malkin, deputy head of the Khmelnitzky regional state administration. Local authorities assigned a special commission to investigate the case." Source. [September 2009]
