Here in what had been a popular holiday resort for Vilna Jewry, they were ordered to undress and to hand over whatever money or valuables they had with them. They were then marched naked, in single file, in groups of ten or twenty at a time, holding hands to the edge of the pits dug by the Soviet Army to store fuel.
They were then shot down by rifle fire, after they had fallen into the pit, no attempt was made to see if they were all dead.
If anyone moved another shot was fired. The bodies were then covered from above, with a thin layer of sand and the next group of naked prisoners led from the waiting area to the edge of the pit. From where they had waited, the people had heard the sound of rifle fire but had seen nothing.
German soldiers described massacres in July I cannot whether we arrived in Ponary on 5 or 10 July While we were repairing our vehicles — I can no longer tell whether it was on the first or second day of our stay there — I suddenly saw a column of about four hundred men walking along the road into the pine wood.
They were coming from the direction of Vilna. The column which consisted exclusively of men aged between twenty-five and sixty, were led into the wood by a guard of Lithuanian civilians.
The Lithuanians were armed with carbines, the people were fully dressed and carried only the barest essentials on them. As I remember, the guards wore armbands, the colour of which I can no longer recall. I do remember that Hamann and, I think Hechinger went off after the column.
About an hour later Hamann returned to our quarters. He was pale and told me in an agitated manner what he had witnessed in the wood. The very next day — I think it was around lunchtime — once again I saw a group of four hundred Jews coming from the direction of Vilna going into the same wood.
These too were accompanied by armed civilians. The delinquents were very quiet. I saw no women or children in either of the two groups. Together with some of my colleagues from my motorised column I followed this second group. After we had followed the group for about eight hundred to a thousand metres we came upon two fairly large sandpits.
The path we had taken ran between them both. The pits were not joined but were separated by the path and a strip of land.
We overtook the column just before we reached the pits and then stopped close to the entry to one of them — the one on the right. I myself stood about six to eight meters from the entry. To the left and right of the entry stood an armed civilian — the people were led into the gravel pit in small groups to the right by the guards.
Running around the edge of the pit there was a circular ditch which the Jews had to climb down into. This ditch was about 1. Since the ground was pure sand the ditch was braced with planks. I am only a poor composer. After a short time the Jews had all been herded into the circular trench.Displaced persons' camps in Europe and migration around the world.
