This memorial is a very beautiful one, sitting on a small hill overlooking the valley. It was here the prisoners buried their comrades who died in the camp located below the hill. In the forest floor one can still see where the graves had been. The camp itself there is no signs of today as it is farmland. Some locals keep the memorial nice and tidy and there is signs showing the way up to it following a small tractor road and then a small path into the forest.
In 1945 when the camp was liberated it housed 506 Red Army soldiers, 17 was sick, 80 of them very weak and 7 had died during the camps existence. There is no known photos of the camp but on the museum there is a model of it, built by people who lived next to it.
