Salman Edelman was a Polish Jew living in the Białystok Ghetto. He claimed that some German authorities selected him in mid-May 1944 to participate in the exhumation of mass graves, and the cremation of the bodies contained in it. Edelman testified about this after the war together with another member of this unit, Szymon Amiel. It was published, probably in an edited version, in the infamous Soviet propaganda book The Black Book. For a more-detailed discussion, see the entry on Szymon Amiel.
