Khatyn Memorial, Lahojsk District

#1 of 17 in Sightseeing in Minsk Region
Monument Educational Site
At Khatyn Memorial, see the sculpture of the only survivor of Khatyn--a village burned by the Nazi punishment battalion in World War II. The 6 m (19.7 ft) tall bronze sculpture represents a grieving father holding the lifeless body of his son. The sculpture stands amid 26 bare chimneys with bells--creating an image of a burned village. The bells of Khatyn ring every hour to remind people about this horrible crime against humanity. The memorial was built on the site of the former village in 1969. A handful of soil from each of the 185 burned Belarusian villages was brought to Khatyn to create a symbolic graveyard.

  • Drove in Khatyn family with a friend on the machine. Large parking lot, big and clean the toilet under the ground. Many buses, tours, well-groomed territory. Simultaneous ringing bells at any time of day or year. Here it is necessary to watch, read and listen to the tour guide. Walked slowly, read information, looked at the numbers. Depressing, but it's got to see and know.

  • Khatyn. What words? One of the 186 villages Belarus burnt together with people. Just go and look. Chimneys and Bell times in 30 seconds. Everything is done so that shake begins even in the entrance to this place. It is absolutely impossible to calmly and leave.

  • Memorial and important place for Belarusians...
  • An important place to visit in Belarus !
  • Impressive
  • Very moving. A must see.
  • Mixed feelings. It is difficult to judge about the complex as a place "where to go". Here a special atmosphere, a place of mourning and memory. Walking along the paths of former streets of the village of Khatyn, entirely differently perceived notion of life ....
