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

(4.5/5 based on 130 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.

  • Recently, strolling on the outskirts of the city centre, among the houses saw a sort of moat unintelligible. Descending the stairs down, I was Spellbound: the spot shot hundreds of Jews during the 2 world war. The monument itself is very touching and impressive, even despite the proximity of roads and homes around some silence hangs over this place. I think that people and visitors to appreciate the monument and a place just to remember what a monstrous victims led the Nazi ideology.
