Lesniczowska Forest

Two weeks after the Germans occupied Buczacz, in mid-July 1941, Ukrainian policemen collected 40 Jews and non-Jews in the city's prison. The assembled people were then taken by the Ukrainians and two German Gestapo officials to the Lezniczowska Forest, some three kilometers from Buczacz. They ordered the Jews to undress, robbed them of all their possesions, abused them, and then killed them with handgrenades and machine-guns.
