JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Have you visited Belovshchina (Russia) grave site? #general

Dear JGen Researchers,
After the recent day of commemoration I am thinking about my relatives who were
murdered in the Shoah. Some of my mother's family were killed at Pochep, Russia and
others were killed nearby at Belovshchina, which I recently learned is on the
outskirts of Starodub, Russia.

There is a description of the Belovshchina murders, linked to information about a
memorial for the mass grave, on the Yad Vashem website:


Has anyone visited this mass grave site? Does anyone have or know where I could
find a photo of the memorial?

As always, thanks for your help.
