On August 29, 1941, the remaining Jews of Ziezmariai, mainly women and children, were expelled from their houses. They were driven to pits in the Triliskiu Hills, about 1.5 kilometers from the east end of the town, via Zasliai, and shot.
Karl Jaeger commanded the operation, and reported afterward on the number of Jews murdered in Ziezmariai and Rumsiskis: 784 people (20 men, 567 women, 197 children).
