At peace, prof. Leonidas Donskis:” I would be happy, if while I am still alive something similar would happen in Butrimonys… I feel a moral obligation to say Kaddish there with Jews…” (2016.08.31 Delfi TV telecast, in the context of the Moletai march). On October 23rd, 3 p.m. at the main Jewish mass grave in Butrimonys, we shall pay tribute to the memory of Leonidas Donskis. The Kaddish – by Rafailas Karpis.
Everyone is welcome.
HOW TO FIND (http://holocaustatlas.lt/EN)
Driving from Butrimonys to Klydžionys village (4 km down road no. 1122), look for a way on the right side in a pasture field. In the distance you can see the tops of the fir trees that are surrounding the monument site. There are no signs leading to the mass execution site from the road. Following this small way through the fields you will reach a small river with a bridge over it. That’s the main murder site.
