Victims of Rainis Park Masacre

First grave2.jpg

Gravestone for 37 Jews (including 3 unknown ones) executed in Rainis Park
 on 3.7.1941 and reburied in the Jewish Cemetery several days later.
The Soviet inscription says: "Eternal Glory to the Heroes Who Fell in
the Battles for our Soviet Fatherland". True, many were members of the
paramilitary Workers' Guard, but they were arrested and shot, not killed in combat.
