A brick monument to the Jews of Rudkovshchina was erected at the end of the 1950s or the beginning of the 1960s by a Holocaust survivor from the village. Over time this monument fell into disrepair. Today only fragments remain. Several years ago a new, marble monument was erected, with a Star of David and a Russian inscription that says: "Here are buried the victims of the German-fascist occupiers who were shot on February 11, 1942."
