On August 29, 1941, the remaining Jews of Žiežmariai, mainly women and children, were expelled from their houses. They were driven to pits in the Triliskiu Hills, about 1.5 kilometers from the east end of the town, via Žasliai, and shot.
Karl Jaeger commanded the operation, and reported afterward on the number of Jews murdered in Žiežmariai and Rumsiskis: 784 people (20 men, 567 women, 197 children).
