Monument to Fallen Jewish People on March 2, 1942, Minsk

(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
At Monument to Fallen Jewish People on March 2, 1942, see the bronze sculptures representing Jewish prisoners who descended a slope to their deaths in a pit. Artists Leonid Levin and Elsa Polak created the layout for this sculptural group of 27 figures in 2000. Look for the figures of a violinist, children, and a pregnant woman. The inscription on the obelisk commemorates the 5,000 victims of Nazi terror who were shot and burned on the site on March 2, 1942. The reconstruction of the memorial took eight years because all the work was done by hand.

  • Almost imperceptible place of great tragedy in a quiet residential courtyard in Minsk. I do not know whether always here so, but Sunday in the 1st half of the day, I was the one that was very strange for me is, of course, Sunday morning, but all the same day when a large number of tourists to visit Minsk. Sea of emotions when you look at the turn of the death in the hole and waiting for her men, hiding behind their women, crying children, entire families. It is recommended to visit, and of course the obligatory study of history.

Especially those who arrive in Minsk, seeing in this city only "drink-snack". Stand next to it. Listen as noisy city and think for a moment about those who went down into the Pit. What they heard? That thought in the last minutes of his life.
