This memorial was erected in Tel Aviv in the southern section of the Holon Cemetery, the Old Gate, Block 11, across from the Hagana, number 95, thanks to the donors and financial help of the Jews of Shkud in and outside Israel.

  1. Into the left-hand column of the memorial were placed the names of the murdered people, written on parchment.
  2. Into the right-hand column were placed soil and dried plants from the top of Alka Hill in Lithuania, from the grave of the mothers and babies. Placed in by Shlomo Taits and Eliahu Reif, the soil and plants were brought from the mass murder site by Maya Ingbor from Fogelman's house in the summer of 1992.
