Rivne honours the memory of Jews murdered by the Nazis
A ceremony has been held in Rivne in memory of the Jews shot on the outskirts of the regional centre by the Nazis. 68 years ago, during the space of two days 17.5 thousand Jews brought from the Rivne Ghetto were executed in the Sosonki Clearing. At that time this was in numerical terms almost half the population of Rivne
A memorial complex has been built at the place of the tragedy, and the local regional history museum holds material and the accounts of those who survived.
According to Daria Yefymenko from the Khesed-Osher Fund, on 5 November 1943 children, adults, the aged were all taken by convoy with dogs to the Sosonki Clearing. The killing was carried out by day and night.
