Gravestones on the graves of brothers from among the martyrs at the cemetery in
The gravestone on the right was the first to be erected; 85 people are buried under it – they were killed [Yiddish adds "shot"] on the 13th of Tammuz [Yiddish adds 1941]. They were thrown into a ditch prepared by the murderers in advance.
[Yiddish adds:] The epitaph is in Hebrew, and was composed by R. Yeshayahu Elkis. It says: Here are buried the dead who were killed in the sanctification of the Holy Name by the fascist murderers on Friday, 13 Tammuz, 5701 . [The calendar shows, however, that the 13th of Tammuz was July 8, 1941 and was a Tuesday].
Left: The gravestone erected later over the graves of dead whose bones were retrieved from various locations. As R. Yeshayahu Elkis, a ritual slaughterer, explains (he moved to Israel in February, 1972 [sic], the two stones disintegrated over time, underwent repair, and the inscriptions were redone. See the heading, "Yedinitz Today". Below: the last gravestone, which has an inscription in Russian.
