  Holocaust memorial in the Jewish Sector in the Mar’ina Roshcha Cemetery in Nizhnii Novgorod, Russia

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Levin, Vladimir, 2021

 The upright stele of unpolished marble of uneven form has a black marble plaque with inscription in its center.

The inscription in Russian reads:

Обелиск установлен / нижегородской сина- / гогой 9 мая 1995 г. / в память о 6000000 / евреев погибших / в годы второй миро- /вой войны 1939-1945 гг. (The obelisk is erected by the synagogue of Nizhnii Movgorod on 9 May 1995 in memory of 6,000000 Jews perished in the years of the Second World War 1939-1945).

 Below the Russian inscription there are two rows in Hebrew:

ה' ינקום דמם / ת.נ.צ.ב.ה.

 (God will revenge their blood. Their souls will be bound in the bundle of life).

The upper part of the stele bears a carved Magen David, while under the plaque two memorial candles are carved.

In the lower right, appears acknowlegement for donations:

Благодарность / за пожертвования / Л. Раснецову / М. Звину / Л. Грузману / Д. Лев (Gratitude for donations to L. Rasnetsov, M. Zvin, K. Gruzman, D. Lev).
