Information about the crime

A young Jewish woman from Rajbrot was murdered in the forest. She came from one of the few Jewish families in that village. The body was buried at the site. The location of the grave was possible thanks to the precise indication of the descendant of the man who buried the woman’s body.

“The daughter of a man who buried a murdered Jewish girl remembered this place. This is the second person who told me about this case. This man worked in the field and that’s why he was ordered to bury the murdered girl. She was murdered in this grove and buried here, using the strength of the man who worked in the field. I suppose she was local because there were several Jewish families in Rajbrot before the war. ” (Rajbrot, April 6, 2021)

IDENTIFICATION OF THE GRAVE BASED ON NON INVASIVE RESEARCH

On October 19, 2020, a site inspection was carried out in the place indicated as a burial site for 20-30 victims (GPS: N 51 ° 52.157 ‘E 021 ° 39.178’). The indicated area is close to the dirt road and the radio mast. In addition, the site selected for GPR research is characterized by a very distinct sinkhole. The relief model (LiDAR) clearly shows numerous soil disturbances in this area.

The GPR research is planned for 2022.

The aerial photography query is scheduled for 2022.
