This is a very moving monument dedicated to the 5000 Jewish prisoners, men, women and children, who on March 2, 1942 were brought here, shot and buried, some still alive.

The monument is a short walk from the doubletree. Very somber rememberance of the 2000 murdered by the nazis on this spot during WWII.

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
