Jewish Victims of the Holocaust from Kolomyia and nearby villages

Description

This monument is located in a forest in Sheparivtsi Village, where mass executions of Jews took place. Concrete pavement and two black slabs with slanted tops lead to the memorial stele, a large unfinished stone with uneven surfaces and an irregular shape. The right side of the stone has a curve and leans upward to the right. The top side of the monument is unevenly beveled. To the right of this large stone, there is a smaller one. In the upper right corner of the front side of the monument there is a square black polished plaque with a Magen David carved on it. In the middle of the front side of the monument there is a rectangular black polished stone plaque with inscriptions in Ukrainian, Hebrew, and Yiddish.
