A memorial site outside of town is where Jews were murdered. There is a memorial stone at the site that states in Ukrainian or Russian and in Hebrew: "Stand and pay attention to this place. Here on August 28, 1942 Nazis occupiers martyred more than 3,000 Soviet citizens. History will not forget or forgive them and their barbaric actions. May the victims rest in peace." The cemetery is now where the center of town is. After the war, the Communists built a government building on the site. All that remains is a grassy yard. There is no marker.
