It's only a little statue with a man and a child but it represents the great pediatrist living and caring children during the war, when there was the ghetto. Important jump into the Vilnius ghetto history. Always in people's memory.

A pointed reminder of what happened to the Jewish population near the ghetto memorial. You must check out the Hill of Crosses near Siaulai!
