The remains of 1,214 Holocaust victims were laid to rest in a mass burial at a cemetery just outside the town of Brest in Belarus at the border with Poland on Wednesday.
Details: The bodies were found by construction workers in February on the site of what was a Jewish ghetto during World War II. It's believed the Nazis slaughtered them, per NPR. Their remains were placed into 120 coffins decorated with the Star of David, AP reports.
