11 April: International Day to Remember the Liberation of the Prisoners of the Nazi Concentration Camps
On Saturday, Belarus marked Holocaust Victims Memorial Day. On 2 March 1942, the Nazis killed more than 5,000 Jews from the Minsk Ghetto (which had 80,000 to 100,000 residents) at the “Pit”. Later, in 1947, the USSR erected a monument to Holocaust victims at the place of this tragedy. This Saturday, Belarusian Jewish groups came to the memorial to commemorate the victims of that massacre.
