Scarf that Belonged to Ethel Stolyar, who was Murdered in a Killing Pit in Zhitomir

Scarf that Etel Stoliar took with her when she was marched to the murder pit near the town of Vcherayshe in the Zhitomir area.

Before being murdered, she was forced to undress. A Ukrainian policeman who was present took the scarf and later gave it to an acquaintance of the Stoliar family who recognized it. When Etel’s daughter, Maria, returned to her home after the liberation, she was given the scarf.

Ethel Stolyar from the village of Vcherayshe, Ukraine in the Zhitomir region. Ethel was murdered in a killing pit outside the village in May 1942

Yekaterina Lysiuk, “Righteous Among the Nations”, sheltered Mariya and Sonia Stolyar in her home after they escaped from the mass murder of the Jews of their village
