Radin cemetery is at 54.0400° N  24.9681° E

Grodno cemetery is at 53°40'42"N   23°48'7"E -- but from your schedule, you wouldn't have time to go there or anywhere else other than Valozhyn which would be on the way from Minsk to Radun.

In Novardok there is a Jewish cemetery that's in bad condition. Majority of the stones were removed by the soviets to build nearby garages and pavements.  There is some stones from the alter of Novardok's family.

Only thing to see in Novardok is the museum about the ghetto prisoners who escaped from their barracks by digging a 250-metre tunnel, joining the Bielski brothers/partisans in the forests). I went there with a friend, bringing sefer Medregas Ha'adam along, taking pictures by the Novardok town sign. Interesting to read is that Jared Kushner's grandparents are from the survivors, as he wrote in http://observer.com/2016/07/jared-kushner-the-donald-trump-i-know

Maybe I should organize a week tour of Belarus and Lithuania myself :)
Thanks for the info!

Also "Surviving History" - 30 minute film should be an interest to watch on Portraits from Vilna presents the life stories of ten individuals who survived the Holocaust in Lithuania where ninety-five percent of the 240,000-strong pre-war Jewish population was annihilated.  If you would like to visit the Paneriai Memorial showcased in this film, the address is:  Agrastu 17, Vilnius

Yup, great app.

Although heard feedback from a few people went to Lizensk that the location points aren't accurate, would recommend using Google maps direct.

Visited Belarus last summer.  Hired a driver.  Drove via Lithuania.  Overnighted in Lida (near Radun), visited Volozhyn, Mir, Slonim and several other sites.  Jewish Community Center in Pinsk catered food for us... PM for more info...
