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.

  • In Minsk, have been purposefully searched for this monument to lay flowers. Surprised that the locals did not know where he is, but trying to help struggling (even sent us to the Park on the other side, where was also a memorial to Jews). When we finally found this monument, the body shivers ran: it is practically in the backyard of the House, as if emphasizing what horror took place in front of many people.

  • I live in Minsk, but learned about this place quite by accident. We walked around the city with friends and just accidentally wandered there. What was my astonishment, seeing this sculptural group. The place is very sad and how many atmospheric wrote. Don't know how true specially to go there. I would say that it is worth there kept someone if you have broached on genocide, if this is necessary for the purpose of correction, etc. in common place with a specific context is not via Trinity neighbors just so walk.

  • This sculptural complex is located almost in the heart of Minsk. Around goes noisy life near the monument, and it freezes. It is a reminder to the world that millions of innocent people it tragically cut short. Recommend guests of the city of Minsk.
