The memorial is dedicated to the victims of the Răzeni Massacre. The massacre took place on June 22, 1941, in Răzeni, when 10 people were killed by the Soviet authorities and buried in a mass grave. The memorial was opened on February 21, 2009; Moldovian politician Alexandru Tănase was present.
In 1941 after Operation Barbarossa, when the area came under the control of the pro-Nazi Antonescu regime, a commemorative plaque was installed in Răzeni: "Aici odihnesc robii lui Dumnezeu Diomid, Niculai, Dănila, Nichita, Alexandru, Jurian, Alexandru, Ilie, doi necunoscuţi. Omorâţi mișelește de bolșevici comuniști. 12.VII.1941".
