No tīmeklī pieejamās informācijas:
Vācu karaspēks ieņēma Limbažus 1941.gada 10.jūlijā, taču jau vairākas dienas pirms tam, 5.jūlijā, pilsētā bija organizējusies vietējā pašaizsardzībnieku grupa, kas uzsāka ebreju arestus un pazemošanu, kā arī padomju aktīvistu nošaušanu, to starpā netālu no Lielezera nogalināti arī trīs ebreji. Ebreju masveida slepkavības sākās jūlija otrajā pusē un norisa pēc vācu iestāžu rīkojumiem, saņemtiem no Valmieras. Pirmā akcija notika Nabes pagasta mežā (ap 10 km no Limbažiem), tās laikā nošauti ap 60 – 70 pilsētas ebreji. Ap 20.jūliju šeit, tā saucamajās Vilbaku priedēs, noslepkavoti vēl 30 Limbažu ebreji, bet ap 12.septembri, lauku darbiem beidzoties, pie Aģes upes grantsbedrēm nošāva palikušos 10 – 20 Limbažu ebrejus, kuri pirms tam bija aizvesti uz luterāņu mācītāja lauku mājām Vidrižu pagastā. Atsevišķi arestētie Limbažu ebreji, iespējams, kopā ar padomju aktīvistiem jūlija otrajā pusē tika aizvesti uz Valmieru. 1982.gadā netālu no slepkavību vietas šeit tika uzstādīts laukakmens ar granīta plāksni, kuras uzraksts latviešu un krievu valodā vēsta "Šajā mežā 1941.gada vasarā fašisti nošāva padomju pilsoņus".

ENG: From information, which is available on web:
German army conquered town Limbaži on 10th July, 1941, but already several days before at 5th July local self–defense group organized themselves in town. They started arrests and humiliation of Jews and shooting dead soviet activists, they killed three Jews near lake "Lielezers" too. Mass killings of Jews started at second half of July, based of German demands, received from town Valmiera. First mass killings happened in wood in parish of Nabe (about 10 km from Limbaži), in it 60 – 70 town Jews were shoot dead. Around 20th July, there, in so called Vilbaku pines, 30 more Jews from Limbaži were killed. And around 12th September, when rural works ended, next to gravel pits of river Aģe last 10 – 20 Jews from Limbaži were killed. In 1982 next to the killing place boulder with granite plate had been set up. In granite plate is inscription in Latvian and Russian languages "In this wood at summer of 1941 fascists shoot dead soviet citizens".
