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. Monument to Fallen Jewish People on March 2, 1942 is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Minsk Edition.

  • Belarus honors the memory of the dead, whether soldiers or civilians. Alas, there are many such mournful places in Belarus. "JAMA" is not some tourist attraction for people who do not interfere with history, and foreigners will not be very interested and understandable.
