Other famous locations of Nazi genocides are well documented, like the well-known forest of Babi Yar. The Rostov massacre was somehow overlooked while piecing together the tragedies that befell our people in that dark time, and we don’t want the names of those innocent victims to be forgotten.
The Jewish community of Rostov is launching a holocaust memorial project that will include an extensive website to collect the names and stories of the victims. We hope to build a more detailed remembrance of the Rostov Jewish community and the terrible occurrence that happened there, in August, 1942.
If you have any information about the event or the community at that time, or you know of anyone else who may have information, please send it to us. We hope to begin compiling lists of actual names of these forgotten victims.
Thank you for your interest in our project, to remember the Jewish community of Rostov-on-Don.
