Via Dolorosa


The Nazis started to kill civilians in Odessa very soon after they had taken the city in October, 1941. Lantern posts and trees were used as gallows. While they targeted Jews, they would not discriminate, and Odessa had the biggest Jewish community in the USSR, so a person in the street was likelier to be a Jew than in another Soviet town then.

They also forced tens of thousands Jews to walk from Prohorovskiy Garden in Odessa to Domanevka, where a death camp had been set up, 120 km away, in a freezing weather, without any food or warm clothes. So this is where their sad way, Via Dolorosa started. Few survived it.

The memorial sign was opened in 1994 and funded privately. The architect was Ye.Olenin.
