A mass grave at Zolochev, Ukraine. On July 3, 1941, two days after the German occupation of this former Polish town, Ukrainians carry out a massacre among the 14,000 Jews. 3,500 people are killed. A "ghetto" is set up for the survivors. Over the next months, large groups are sent to work camps, and in 1942 two transports go to the Belzec extermination camp with 5,000 Jews. The ghetto is "liquidated" in April 1943 and the inmates shot.
