Naokoło nas roi się wprost od SS-manów i różnych innych hitlerowskich bandytów, od ściągniętych z całej okolicy policjantów ukraińskich, od stacjonujących od pewnego czasu w naszym miasteczku oddziałów Wehrmachtu, od SD i uzbrojonych miejscowych V01ksdcutschów.

On its right was the stately school-house with well kept grounds and picket fence. Somewhat diagonally across was the magnificent church with its tall steeples towering over an extra-vagant wind-swept park.

Beyond it were concentrated non-Jewish residents and only the rugged and venturesome would risk a leisurely walk in the area. VI
