About Leibel Malevantshik

Leibel Malevantshik was shot in a mass shooting, however was only wounded. As his brother Shlomo began to shovel earth on the bodies in the pit, he hears his brother Leibel's voice crying " Shlomo what are you doing, I am still alive".

The Gestapo ordered the shovelling to continue. This, noted the historian of Szrensk, 'was the most dreadful tragedy of those most dreadful times'.
