EDJC 2023 > Commemorative event dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the liquidation of the Minsk Ghetto
The event will be held to honour the memory of the victims who were killed in the Minsk Ghetto during the Second World War. A press conference has been organised and will take place in the main synagogue of Belarus, where everyone will be able to ask questions to two former prisoners of the Minsk Ghetto – Frida Reizman and Vladimir Trakhtenberg. Then together with the survivors there will be a procession to the memorial “Pit” (Yama), where on 2 March 1942 the Nazis shot around 5000 prisoners of the Minsk Ghetto. It is there that the Jewish memorial prayer Kaddish will be recited and according to the Jewish tradition we will leave small stones at the memorial in an act of remembrance and respect for the deceased. The memorial procession will continue on to the memorial “Broken Hearth”, which is dedicated to the victims of Nazism in the ghetto. The final part of the event will take place there – where the Kaddish will be read again and flowers will be laid at that monument.
