                        Special Cases
                        a) Partisan movements

1) In the course of identification work in the municipal hospital in
Nikolayev, the Jew Hershko Salomon, who had reported there for
treatment of an injured jaw, was identified. The thorough
interrogation of Salomon revealed that he had been a member of a
parachute, counter-intelligence and assault battalion that had to
destroy German parachutists. Prior to the occupation of Nikolayev by
German troops, the battalion was dissolved and broken up into
seperate partisan groups according to the instructions for partisan
was from the commander of the Russian northwestern front. One of the
groups to which Salomon belonged retreated in the direction of
Kherson and fought German troops, in the course of which 43 German
soldiers were killed. Salomon was injured in the Jaw in that battle.


3) During the examination of so-called prisoners-of-war, it became
clear that the Jews Pinchovsky, Shoichert, and Shoshelevsky had been
members of a partisan company numbering 120 men who had operated
between the Red Army and the German lines near Novy-Bug and had been
scattered. The members of the partisan company did not wear uniforms
but were equipped with one gun and 45 rounds of ammunition. They had
been hiding together, apparently with the intention of establishing
contact with other scattered partisans. (Arad, pp. 189-190)
