The Gestapo men come in cars and stop in front of Jewish houses. They take out the
males and order them to bring along a towel and soap. These people are
ostensibly taken to work for several days, but they never return. Groups
of Lithuanian and Polish youths wearing white armbands appear in the
streets and snatch the Jews, whom they lead off to the police stations
or prison. Some of them break into the houses and haul out the Jewish
males. People call them hapunes [abductors] ... It was said that the
price paid to the abductor for a kidnapped Jew was 10 rubles.
