The Governor of Golta, one Isopescu, ordered the execution of the
Jews held in the camp at Bogdanovka. The operation began in the morning - 
the last day of Chanukka - when 4,000 Jews - sick, invalids and orphans -
were packed into two cow sheds and then burned alive. ... The remaining 
Jews were lined up in rows [three to four hundred at a time], marched
to the woods, ordered to stand on the edge of a ravine close to the Bug
River and undress, then shot in the back of the neck. Now and then, 
grenades were lobbed into the ravine to finish off those who might
still be alive. The massacre went on until the evening hours of 
December 24, so as to enable Christians to celebrate Christmas.
(Carmelly, 86-7)
