Who is Commemorated?

Jews from Hlutsk killed on the spot and six million Jews killed in the Holocaust

Description

The memorial is designed as six concrete columns located in the paved square by the side of the 1958 Holocaust memorial.

Three columns are decorated with images of a Jewish family; the columns as if tear these images apart. The columns are visually held together by a black frame reminding a frame of a photograph. 

According to the artist Galina Levina, "the idea of the monument is based on the image of a burnt and torn photograph of a Jewish family taken before June 1941, a symbol of the destruction of Glusk's Jewish families. Six concrete columns as the fragment of the wall of the house, on which photography was placed. Six concrete columns - in memory of six million Jews killed in Holocaust."

Two columns bear inscriptions in Russian.

Inscriptions

Inscriptions were compiled by the journalist, writer, and poet Naum Sandomirskii, one of a handful of Jews living in Hlutsk today.

On the first column (from the right) there is an inscription n Russian:

2 декабря
1941 года
трагедия
зимнего дня
эхо

Translation December 2nd, 1941 // Tragedy of the winter day is echoing in our hearts

On the third column (from the right) in Russian:

Translation: Myslochanskaya mountain [Myslotino Hill] is a place of grief and pain, a place of mass destruction of 3 thousand Glussk Jews
