There is also a 'cemetery for hundreds of Belarussian villages destroyed by
the Wehrmacht' named CHATYN. Some of these villages were never re-built or re-
settled.
There is a LONG side at Chatyn, about two city blocks long, with names of such
ghettos and concentration camps and each has a central marker, listing
thousands (as many as 800,000) dead.
I have pictures of this that I could post on the web if
there's interest.

I also have a picture of the monument in Minsk that was erected
in memory of the Jews killed in WW2. It's a very small monument
that's extremely difficult to find. But, someone puts fresh
flowers in front of it each day.
