Dominica Rakovich

While resetting large heavy headstones in Section “Y” this area overgrown with weed tree brush was found. When cleared, a headstone and base were uncovered along with a statue which was completely buried in the dirt. The statue was gently exposed by hand digging, then hand lifting and supported with wood. Next using the excavator, the heavy statue was gently lifted back onto the base and cemented into place. This monument is located in Section Y Plot 1223, and this is a catch-up post.

The inscription written in Belarus was translated by Mary Lish as follows:

If he believes in me, he dies. Gospel of John
