Nahalat Yitzhak Cemetery in Givatayin contains a memorial dedicated in 1981 by the Association of Lithuanian Jews in Israel in memory of Lithuanian Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust. In the photo on the left, the names of all the Jewish shtetls in Lithuania are inscribed on the plaques at the base of the large memorial.
