  1. A German field kitchen operated out of the town of Ciechanow, south of Jedwabne. A Polish woman worked there – for July 10, 1941 she prepared 256 meals for the German personnel heading for Jedwabne, 87 of whom were coming from Ciechanow itself, the rest from various locations.
    The crime scene was littered with spent German ammunition including in one particular location that determined the ammunition was discharged on the day of the massacre by the German military personnel. A number of Jews were forced to dig a hole to bury a statue of Lenin – spent ammunition from a limited edition prototype of the MG42 machine gun was found in that hole, which was open to the elements only on that day.
    80 affadavits made postwar by Jews seeking repossession of family property refer to the massacre by the Germans.
