ZHEZHELEV:
Located at 49º48' 28º39', 93.5 miles WSW of Kiev. "...there is a place of mass execution of Jews from the village of Komsomolskoye. It was difficult to persuade the Village Council secretary (an official person!) to show me the place, situated in the depth of a forest near the old mine. We got there with difficulty, walking half of the way in water up to our knees. There was no other way to get there. Later the secretary asked me to pay for her services because it was not her duty to walk over marshes." Source: Jewish Heritage Report: http://www.isjm.org/jhr/nos3-4/ukrcem.htm [March 2002]
