Monument to the Jewish Ghetto in Turov
According to the 1939 census, there were 1,528 Jews out of 5,455 inhabitants in the village of Turov. The ghetto in Turov was of an "open type", Jews were left to live in their homes and a Jewish headman was appointed for them to transmit Nazi orders, monitor their implementation and organize forced labor. Jewish men were sent to forced labor every day, mainly to rebuild roads and a bridge across the river. Jews were constantly bullied, beaten and humiliated. Old people were forced to carry unbearable weights.

By the spring of 1942, almost all the Jews of Turov were killed, and the Germans and Ukrainian policemen (the 103rd battalion of the Schutzmannschaft) carried out the executions. Then the Nazis began to look for descendants of Jews from mixed marriages].

On April 7, 1942, the gendarmerie of Turov obliged several Belarusian residents of the town to dig a hole 4x8 meters and 2.5 meters deep in the Jewish cemetery in the Kazargat tract about three kilometers from Turov on the road to the village of Khilchitsy. Then 15 Jewish women and children were brought there on carts, and the policemen shot them. The next day, on April 8, three more Jewish women with young children were killed there — a total of nine people. In the autumn of 1942, Alexander Bondar's family with three children from a Jewish wife and about ten other Jews were killed at this place.

According to incomplete data, only in July-August 1941, the Nazis, in the course of several "actions" (this was the euphemism the Nazis called the mass killings organized by them), killed about 700 people in Turov, 500 of whom were Jews. Incomplete lists of victims of the genocide of Jews in Turov have been published.

In 1946, Jews who returned to Turov from evacuation and demobilized from the army, reburied the remains of their murdered relatives from different places in the village in one mass grave at the Kazargat cemetery. Russian graves In the early 1950s, at the initiative of Leia Zaretskaya, a makeshift monument was erected on this grave with an inscription in Yiddish and Russian: "Victims of fascism, 1941-1945."
