This 'square', formerly Demokratų Square, is in the Kaunas suburb of Vilijampolė, also known as Slobodka – the location of the Kaunas Ghetto from 1941 until its complete destruction in 1944.
On 28 October 1941 a mass selection of its inhabitants took place here, that became known as The Big Action and resulted in extermination of 9200 Jews in a single day. 

There is no memorial or any sign here to mark this event.

Every day at noon a singer comes and sings in Yiddish to the emptiness of Democrats Square.
