"THE GHETTO FIELD"-HOLDS THE GRAVES OF 43,527 GHETTO VICTIMS DURING
THE YEARS 1940 TO 1944. MANY VICTIMS WERE EXECUTED OR BRUTALLY SLAIN;
OTHERS DIED FROM DISEASE OR STARVATION.
More than 1000 other graves are scattered among the main cemetery

after the Ghetto was cleared.
Amid the confusion of the Russian advance they escaped.
Their graves remain unfilled.
