Taniava Forest Mass Grave Site Preservation

A marked area in The Taniava Forest is the final resting place for nearly 1000 Jews who were murdered by the Nazis. For many years, it was harder and harder to find as the forest overgrowth obscured the concrete boundaries that had been put in place in the late 1940s. Prior to our arrival last August, the overgrowth was removed making the site clear and clean for our arrival. The challenge now is to preserve the site for others who will visit, enhance the road and pathway leading to the site, and to find an appropriate means of marking the site.
