59. Klepočių kryžiai. V. Skendelio nuotr..JPG
 
The cross ensemble to commemorate the tragedy of Klepočiai Village was built in 1990; a little later two more ensembles appeared. In 1944, on Christmas Eve, the punitive units of the NKVD troops destroyed almost the entire village in order to intimidate and break the resistance of its residents to the Soviet occupation in Alytus County. They burnt 21 homesteads (out of 32 existing homesteads), shot or burnt alive 12 villagers.
