We took the time to stop by this iconic and historical monument. The design is flawless, and really takes you back in time. The artist did a great job, and we felt something there that made you realize how bad these times were.

This site was nondescript at first, istting in a public park. However, the simple, yet as I descended down the steps into the hole, it gave me a powerful impression of what took place here so long ago.

This is a memorial for the 5000 or so Jewish people who were shot by the Nazis from the nearby ghetto in 1942. Yama means Pit. A heartbreaking sculpture representing the varied victims runs parallel to the steps. A couple embracing, a fiddle player, children huddled terrified in their mother's skirts. It's not too easy to find and there are no signposts. It's diagonally behind the Galleria shopping mall. I understand the site was subject to vandalism. Shame on you.

First, if you want to visit this small memorial you'll have problems finding it. It's in a residential area, totally encircled with apartment blocks, near the Yubileni hotel.
Second, there's nothing else to do in that area. Our hotel was close, just across the river so we paid a visit.
The memorial is very moving with a row of faceless Jews descending to the Yama - their final resting place in a pit mass grave.

This is one of the saddest and most poignant places I have ever visited. In a quiet neighbourhood quite near the main Pobeditily highway and central Minsk, this memorial commemorates the death, on 2 March 1942, of near 5000 Jewish people taken from the nearby huge Minsk ghetto. Shot by automatic weapons, on one day, by the Nazi extermination troupe, overseen personally by Nazi General Commissar of Belarus Wilhelm Kube and Obersturmbanführer SS Adolf Eichmann. The place is silent, a deep pit with a roughly hewn statue of a line of poor hapless people on their last journey of life. This place leaves me with such sadness and also questioning. Who were these people who could shoot 5000 people in one day? What went through their minds? How could they live their lives after doing such an act. What did they tell their children? This is a profound memorial that reminds us of the inhumanity of humans.

This is a stirring and poignant memorial to the 5,000 Jews who were killed in Minsk during the Holocaust.

Rather boring and morbid place with a lot of long gone history with the likes of Adolf. I would have liked to have a coffee and not think about Adolf!

I was told by my guide that this the actual place where massacre of the Jews happened during the German occupation. The stature protrayed the grim scene of the occurence.

Although it is small, and weirdly situated among flats in a neighborhood, I think this is a place everyone should visit. This monument is much more powerful and impressive than the whole Museum of the Great Patriotic War. It focuses on people and not heroes. It shows the unimaginable monstrosities of war. The artist who made this is a genius.

Also one of the few places in Belarus dedicated to Jewish victims.

This impactful memorial site about 1/2 a mile from the Double Tree Hotel is hidden as the memorial portrays the Nazi victims walking to their death in a pit. Photos are not as strong as this life size memorial of faceless victims of German Nazis. Bring a memorial candle to light at the site.

Don’t let the noisy street take away from the importance of the location.
