Khatyn Memorial, Lahojsk District
(4.9/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Be sure to visit people emotionally solid and balanced, because the watch and report what happened there without tears is impossible. About the history of the village of Khatyn, you can read in Wikipedia, there is a description of each Monument and symbol. The entrance to the Memorial itself is free of charge. In a building with a photo exhibition of preserved archives events anniversaries of the incident and the creation of the Memorial entrance worth 1 Bel. Ruble, there is a guide. Traveled by taxi to the r 35, conspired with a man! Seized from the hotel, then brought to mound of glory and the airport!

  • Pain and tears. It's simple and creepy. And tears themselves, without waiting for the Guide's story ... Thoughts in my head about that war should never happen again, that fascism is not the Germans, it is a condition of reciprocity. Thank you, brothers of Belarusians, for the memory of those events, for the opportunity to bring the younger generation the pain and fear of war.

  • Be sure to visit! This is a terrible page of history that has moved from the current generation of 70 years. Unfortunately, many have forgotten that experienced people during the occupation, perevirajut and rewrite history for his own benefit. Here, on the ashes of the former Belarusian village cannot hold back the tears! This is useful for understanding what war!
