One person died every three days on average.
Usually, the very old.
The door leading to the basement prison was used by those inside to keep track.
On the right, the names of those who perished due to the conditions. On the left, the names of those shot dead by Russians. In the middle, the days they'd been in captivity.
For around 28 days in March this year, 371 Ukrainian civilians were held hostage in a secondary school basement in the village of Yahidne, north of Kyiv. Russian invaders used the school as their command centre, keeping the locals in a cramped space beneath them as a 'living shield.'
Watch: Yahidne residents speak of basement ordeal. Post continues after video.
They ranged in age from five months to 93 years old. At least 60 children were among them.
Seven were killed outside, likely executed. Hostages would be taken upstairs to be interrogated, and they'd never return.
Ten died from inhumane conditions; there was no space to move, limited access to fresh air, food or water, no electricity and nowhere to go to the toilet. They had to take it in turns to sleep, as there wasn't enough room in the 197 square metre area for them all to do so overnight.
Their deaths often went unnoticed until they failed to get up for daily food rations, with one survivor telling Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RBE/RL) they'd, "try to wake a person up when the distribution of food begun, but the person would already be cold [from death]."
"It was dark in there, everyone was sitting, they didn't walk, [so] it was impossible to know that someone had died," she added.
