Clay pit

On September 2 or 4, 1942 about 200 Jews of Balin were collected on the village square. Ukrainian policemen surrounded the area. After a selection was carried out by the Germans, the young and those capable of work were put into one group and the old and sick people and women with little children - into another. The first group was taken on foot to Kamenets-Podolsk. The second one was taken along the road to the clay pit outside the village that had been prepared as a murder site, on German orders, by local Ukrainian residents. The Jews in that group were shot to death there by a German unit.
