Although I had seen pictures of it before our trip, when our guide took us to the site, it suddenly came into view and nearly took my breath away. You can walk down into the grassy area below the monument where there is a more...More

As others reviewers have noted, this is a sombre memorial to Minsk's Jewish population, many of whom perished in WWII. The sculptor conveys with numbing effectiveness the hopeless descent into the abyss of the men, women and children who fell victim to Nazi terror. Although...More

The monument is a place that is laid out with great thought and for those that take the time to find out why the monument is laid out in the way it is, it will touch your hearts. One of the most poignant monuments in...More

You can just feel the desperation and hopeless despair of the Jewish population walking to their death in the pit. The line of statues is perfect for this monument. I had never known about this history this until I saw and read about the massacre.

A must see in Minsk. Very small and not real easy to find but so worth searching. It will bring tears to your eyes.

You can imagine how horrible happened to Jewish people when seeing the sculpture. Should not let this happen again.

Every European city visit, I seek out where the Jewish peoples were slaughtered, pay my respects, and keep them in mind. It's the least we can do.

A sad and yet beautiful place the bronze sculpture The Final Path gives one the feeling of dispair but nevertheless is stunning. The Obelisk at the end again simple. Definitely worth a visit. The previous reviews say it all.

Imagine... On 1 day, 5,000 innocent men, women, and children, shot and buried at this spot. 100,000 people in total. This is a hard-to-find and disturbing memorial. Certainly worth your time.

Beyond the importance of this memorial from historical and memory point of view, this site is unbelievably touching. From first look it seems to be simple and consist of stairs wit statue memorial obelisk and not large area in the "pit". But when you coming...More
