See Zarudintsy I for town information. The mass grave is located on SE outskirts in the forest, 9 [or 19] km from Nemirov. The Jewish mass grave was dug in Febr. 1942. Romanian and Bessarabian Jews were murdered here. The isolated wooded flat land has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road and crossing public field and forest, access is open to all. No wall, fence, or gate surrounds the mass grave. The approximate size of mass grave is now 0.01 hectares. No gravestones are visible. The municipality owns property used for Jewish cemetery only. Properties adjacent are agricultural and forest. The mass grave boundaries are larger now than 1939. Rarely, private visitors and local residents visit. This mass grave was not vandalized. There is no maintenance. Very serious threat: uncontrolled access (free access, near the mass burial in collective field). Serious threat: vegetation (The mass burial is unmarked, overgrown with the grass and bushes). Moderate threat: weather erosion, pollution and vandalism. Slight threat: existing and proposed nearby development.
