Near Kupel. 30,000 Jews were murdered. One day, all the Jews from Vollchisk and the area were forced to go to the Jewish cemetery, dig a big grave, and take off their clothes. Then, they were shot at the same time. A long time after this event, the grave kept moving. The earth moved. Since some of the people were still alive and injured, they were trying to get out. After the War, the cemetery and the two graves were neglected until a wealthy American Jew (a former resident of Vollchisk) built a fence and a memorial tombstone.
