On August 19, 1942, the inhabitants of the first ghetto were taken from their homes and brought to the local stadium, where the Germans selected those unable to work – the elderly, the infirm, young children, and women with children – altogether between 1,742 and 3,000 people (according to German and Jewish sources respectively). They were shot in the field of the Frunze kolkhoz, two kilometers from Bar in the direction of the village of Garmaki, in a hollow on the right side of the road. The massacre was carried out by the Kamenets Podolsky SD office, Gendarmerie and local auxiliary police. The rest of the ghetto’s residents were brought back to the ghetto, which shrank in size.
