15: August 17, 1980. Left: Moshe Shneider’s wife (Raya?), Kalman Shneider. Right: Ben-Tsiyon Birger, Moshe Shneider, Moshe’s son. Note the inscription stating that “2076 people are buried here.” The number was likely taken from the so-called Jaeger report. Chaim Ronder, the main witness to the event, puts the number at 3,700. The inscription dating the memorial to 1957 appeared between 1975 and 1980, after most Jewish Keidaners had left Lithuania.
