Photo of a pin found in
November 1982 at the site of the
mass grave where the last Jews
of Butrimantz were killed on
October 1, 1941.
Engraved in the pin are the Hebrew words:
If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget her cunning.
If I do not remember thee,
Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth.
|Psalm cxxxvii, 5-6|
