"After the Jews had entered the gas chambers, the Ukrainians closed the doors, the motor was switched on by the Ukrainian Emil Kostenko and by the German driver Erich Bauer from Berlin," said SS Officer Kurt Bolender. "After the gassing, the doors were opened and the corpses were removed by a group of Jewish slave workers.”
