Erected in 1992
Designed by: David Reznik

In a location on the outskirts of Stolin, known as Stasino (or Dolin or Zatisha), lay buried the remains of the Jewish population of Stolin killed by the Nazis during WWII.

To reach the site, drive northeast from Stolin, through the adjacent village of Mankovichi, in the direction of the collective farm. Once you reach the sign which reads “Стасина,” walk towards the collective farm where you will find a path that leads into the forest. After 50-100 meters you will arrive at the mass grave.
