In the 1950s the Svetlogorsk Hotel was constructed on the murder site and the bodies of the Holocaust victims were reburied in a cemetery in Svetlogorsk (the new name of Shatilki) or, according to other sources, in Parichi. Today the murder site is in the center of Svetlogorsk on the corner of Lenin and the 50th Anniversary of October Streets. A memorial to the Jewish victims is located at the civil cemetery in Lazo Street. The Russain inscription on the monument says: "Here are buried Soviet civilians who were killed by the Hitlerites in 1942. May people remember what brutal Fascism brings upon humanity."
