About 500 Jews were killed by the Nazis at Motykaly (Polish: Motykały, Russian: Мотыкалы).

The location is a group of small villages spread over an area about 3km x 3km (1.8mi x 1.8mi) about 12.5km (7.7mi) along the rail line northwest of the central Brest station.

Currently available information is no more specific than at Motykaly.

The recently-erected regional monument at Chernavchitsy, not far to the east, may be intended to memorialize these victims, among others.
