The names  submitted by relatives and friends of those murdered during the Holocaust  are now available online  on   The Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names  at http://www.yadvashem.org/lwp/workplace/IY_HON_Welcome


One Hundred and fifty five men, women and children were murdered.  A list of their names will appear here soon.


"The "Jager report" was written by a commander of one of the "Einsatzgruppen" (special task forces) which were in charge of liquidating Jews, communist leaders, partisans and others in the Soviet Union.

To understand the magnitude of the massacres, note the total number of victims - 137,346. This is for one Einsatzgruppe, in a five month period, in one area. This report reflects very clearly on the plan to kill all the Jews, except those which were needed for working purposes; those were, as the report notes, "only" to be sterilized; Jager goes on to state that "if despite sterilization a Jewess becomes pregnant she will be liquidated."

There are many documents about the Einsatzgruppen massacres in the Soviet Union, but the "Jager report" is one of the most chillingly detailed of them. "
