At least 500 Jews were shot in a field about 1 km from the centre of Samhorodok on June 4, 1942. With that, an entire Jewish community was eradicated. 15 soviet prisoners of war were also murdered here. Not long after the war, an obelisk was erected at the site of the mass shooting. A concrete slab and a rectangular metal frame were added later. The concrete slab was crumbling. The metal fencing was buckling.

In 2019, a new memorial was erected and inaugurated at the site of the mass shooting of the Jews of Samhorodok.
