Soviet Army soldiers – behind the Shaul Hall, behind the threshing place,
across the river. Picture was taken in 1958

with their mothers. The memorial was unveiled in 1966



At the foot of Alka Hill there is a grey stone memorial

It's written that in this place, between 1941 and 19944, the murderers killed 510 people. It doesn't say that these people were all Jews: the women, children, and babies of Shkud. On August 15-16 1941, 289 of these people were buried alive. Standing from right: Leib Yelovich, Hana Shaf-Brener, Berl Yelovich, and Moshe Elkind.
