In the course of the spring of 1942 the inmates of the so-called "field ghetto" of Slutsk were taken to the forest near the village of Bezverkhovichi about 10 kilometers west of Slutsk. According to survivors, on Mondays and Saturdays 2 to 4 trucks took the victims to the execution site, where they were shot or murdered in gas vans. The last Jews of the "field ghetto were murdered on Passover (April 2/3) 1942. The total number of Jews murdered at Bezverkhovichi is estimated to have been between 3,000 and 4,000.
