  Formula of Sorrow Holocaust Memorial in Pushkin, Russia

© Vladimir Levin, Photographer: Levin, Vladimir, 7.2016

The monument was unveiled on 13 October 1991. It is based on the model by Vadim Sidur made in 1972

The Hebrew and Russian inscriptions read: «.שפכו דמם כמים… ואין קובר // …пролили кровь их как воду, / и некому было похоронить их» (“They have shed their blood like water …and there was none to bury them,” Ps. 79:3).
A further inscription in Russian reads: Евреям г. Пушкина, / павшим жертвами / фашистского / геноцида / 1941 г. (To the Jews of Pushkin, fallen victims of the Fascist genocide of 1941).
