Memorial to Holocaust Victims Opened in Kaliningrad

Monument to Victims of Holocaust in Palmniken of 1945 was unveiled in Yantarny Settlement on the Kaliningrad coast of Baltic Sea yesterday.
      It was here, on ice and in ice-cold water of Baltic Sea, on the outskirts of Settlement Palmniken, where the Nazi shot down several thousand people - Jewish prisoners of concentration camps and ghettos - on the night of February, 1st, 1945.
      This cruel and cynical massacre became the last step of the Holocaust - mass destruction of Jews by Nazis during World War II.
      Focus of the monument created by Frank Meisler is hands lifted up to the sky as a symbol of perishing people trying to grasp life and appealing for help.
