  • Klusa, bet traģiska vieta. Apkārt menoras svečturim atrodasakmeņi, kuros ir iekalti šeit nogalināto vārdi. Atsevišķos akmeņos, ir iegravēti Rīgas geto teritorijas ielu nosaukumi. Masu kapu vietas iezīmētas ar taisnstūra betona apmalēm. The memorial, unveiled in 2002, is a moving sight. The small stones around the menorah carry the name of many of the Latvian Jews - Riga Ghetto residents, that were killed here. Even more, they have been placed there corresponding to the street on which they were settled. There's also a list there with the names of them. The mass graves are marked with concrete barriers.
