The End of Everything by DamaInNero The End of Everything by DamaInNero
In March 1942 approximately 5,000 Jews were killed nearby where "The Pit" memorial to the Minsk ghetto now stands. By August less than 9,000 Jews were left in the ghetto according to German official documents. The ghetto was liquidated on 21 October 1943, with many Minsk Jews perishing in the Sobibor extermination camp. Several thousands were massacred at Maly Trostenets extermination camp (before the war, Maly Trostenets was a village a few miles to the east of Minsk). By the time the Red Army retook the city on 3 July 1944, there were only a few Jewish survivors.

Minsk, Belarus.

This sculpture/monument seems to fit the crime and atrocities, somehow--the splintering of a family, a village. a people.

it's pretty saddening to think of all that carnage, all those lights extinguished out of the evil in hate.
thanks for keeping the hope alive and new life through memories of the past.
