Manevtsy forest

In July 1942 the Jews of Baziliya were driven by Ukrainian auxiliary police out of their homes in the ghetto, loaded onto trucks, and taken to the forest near Manevtsy village, located east of the town. They were shot to death there by a German unit. Gebietskommissar (regional commissar) Gerald Shefer was in charge of this murder operation.
