An immense amount of graves, the dates on the headstones give you an idea of the ages of people who were killed, so many young people. The big granite stones cover the mass graves where thousands of remains are buried.

There are 2 cemeteries in the area. One big with both Jewish and Christian graves and Mass graves and one smaller located close to the crematorium that was build by forced Jewish Labour during the war.

The cemetery is next to a small crematorium which leaves one without the vocabulary to express all the emotions of viewing the landscape of waste, truly innocent lives. A must see and feel experience.
