The school building, where the NKVD tortured Ukrainians
The locals recall that on the slope buried tortured people. These words were confirmed by the discovery of 150 meters from the school building. In the first minutes of the excavation, the archaeologists came across the bones of 6-year-old child and an adult.

“The children were judged. Probably, they and their parents had been prepared for deportation. But, unable to withstand all the conditions in prison, the children were killed. This could be due to infectious or respiratory diseases. And could’ve hit Nkvdshnik. Unfortunately, this terrible practice was in those days, ” explains Tymkiv.
