On June 22, 2022, a monument To the Victims of the Holocaust was opened on the Alley of Monuments of the municipality of Orhei.
The Monument to the Victims of the Holocaust, opened in Orhei, was created by the famous sculptor Naum Epelbaum about 30 years ago. The Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova managed to buy this monument and turn it into metal. For Orhei, this is not the only monument associated with the terrible tragedy. During the Soviet era, the Jews of the town succeeded in erecting commemorative signs for the perished compatriots. This was practically impossible in the USSR, where the monuments in the places of extermination of Jews had to be accompanied by the inscription like: To the dead or brutally murdered Soviet citizens. They could not mention the Jewish ethnicity of the victims. The Jews of Orhei found a solution to this issue by erecting monuments at the Jewish cemetery. There are inscriptions in Yiddish and Russian on the monuments. The largest monument is called: Mass Grave. The ashes of the Jews who were brutally murdered by the Nazis in 1941 lie here. The monument contains many names, three photographs, inscriptions of names in Russian, Yiddish and Hebrew. In some cases, the names of the children are given, but sometimes only their number.
