Special guard-squads prevented these

boarding the trains.

Many died right by the railways

leading to Kharkov, Kiev...

They entered a house and asked:

"where are your dead?"

There was only a half-dead

woman laying in the bed.

They said:

"Let's take her! She will die anyway. "

"Why come after her tomorrow?"

She begged them:

You must all know half

a dozen of people at least,

who are of no use in this world.

Who are more trouble

"Now will you be kind enough

to justify your existence?"

"If you can't justify your existence,

if you are not producing as much as

for the purpose of keeping you alive.

Because your life does not benefit us

and it can't be of very

much use to yourself.

Then we can denounce even more

of them, the ones who are left.

Don't be afraid to do it.

Every administrative region

had a designated area

where corpses were to be buried.

A person was taken down

a corridor to the, Red corner"

There was the final ID check.

The victim had to identify himself.

Then he was led to that room.

When he entered, he was shot.
