After the Red Army liberated Bar, Jews originating from the area planted trees and fenced off the mass graves, creating the two memorials at the Garmaki and Ivanovetskoye murder sites. They also collected money for two identical stellas, erected in 1964. Each stella bears the following inscription in Russian: “In memory of those who perished at the hands of the German-Fascist occupiers during the Great Patriotic War in August-October 1942”. There are also several mass graves and monuments to those killed in the smaller murder operations at the Old and New Jewish Cemeteries in Bar. They are inscribed with the victims’ family names.
