Holocaust Memorial Service – Odessa 27 January

January 27, 2013

Taking a break from current issues, and returning to some haunting issues of the past, today is the official Holocaust Memorial Day in Odessa, with wreath laying and accompanying ceremony taking place at 11am at the Holocaust Memorial situated in Prokhorovskiy Square.

For those who may find it interesting, the monument is situated in a place that was known as the “Road to Death” during WWII/Great Patriotic War – for it was the departure point for many from Odessa who would soon find themselves in concentration camps.
