Monument to Fallen Jewish People on March 2, 1942, Minsk
(4.4/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • Visits to this site, you get the urge to immerse themselves in what happened in Minsk during World War II. An easy way to depict this sculpture the horror and humiliation these people endured before they met death. A powerful experience, but worth a visit. It is close to the new war Museum.

  • In a quiet corner of Minsk, there's one place which may not leave indifferent. It is a monument to Jews of Minsk, who was killed during the Nazi occupation. Monument to the piercing. Misty silhouettes of people descending toward the pit in tandem of imminent death. Persons are indistinguishable. Shapes are barely. Not always even understand a man or woman. That's only children, clinging to the legs of the parents. Would the person clearly shows, the impression would be weaker. Bright bar man with a violin. A terrible monument. And very strong. And is located in the quiet-in the side of the road. Place in Minsk that it is impossible not to visit.

  • the Monument to Fallen Jewish People on March 2, 1942 is a place to visit. Unfortunately it is almost hidden, little noticed, is the Jews that go to the slaughter. A place to remember and never forget.
