                        In the morning of August 30, 1942 all of the Jews of Minkovtsy were assembled in the town square and then taken to a
                        pit that had been dug 1.5 kilometers east of the town on the road to Glubochek village.

                        There 1,840 (max. 2,200) Jews were shot to death by Germans with the assistance of Ukrainian policemen.
