  • This museum worth a visit! Very atmospheric. If at the beginning of the examination of the exposition we went with a girlfriend along, something discussed, then at some point conversations stopped, each experienced seen silently, did not want any comments. Tears of a barely restrained. Yes, Belarus went through terrible years, God forbid, to go through this. Kowtow to people bearing this memory and through her to us.
