A ceremony was held Friday at Yama, a Holocaust memorial in Minsk, in commemoration of the 77th anniversary of the execution of around 5,000 prisoners of the Minsk Jewish ghetto by Nazi troops.

The Jews were killed in mass shooting actions when Adolf Eichmann, who is viewed as the architect of the Holocaust, visited Minsk.

Yama was unveiled in 1947, becoming the first Holocaust memorial in the Soviet Union.
