  • A place that is not accessible, visit the Smolensk, located near the city, convenient to transport accessibility. In addition to the Memorial Museum is worth visiting, you get it at a terrible time, when on the one hand on the ordinary person was propaganda posters and photos of "the beautiful country" with sports festivals and stahanavcami, and on the other hand, repression and telegrams of the NKVD on "overfulfillment of plan". This memory is needed, not to forget and not to repeat. By the way for the main complex, there is a small gate, however already territory, she goes to the forest, but there is continued examination, there is the "Valley of death", where next to the summer staff NKVD executions, went the entire forest in paints, still no data on the exact number of repressed, only common mass graves and crosses, so you better bring flowers of the city and leave in memory of innocent victims.

  • Visited the memorial complex on the Vitebsk road. In a pine forest, far from the city of silence is a mass grave of people finally killed.

  • It seems to me that such seats should be required to visit. First of all, in terms of understanding the history of their country, taking place at the present time and the difference in the mentalities of different peoples. With the last paragraph: started with the Polish part of the complex. Perfect geometry, hundreds of plaques with the names of those killed, closed stoves silhouettes of mass graves. Very solemnly, simply and sincerely. On the Russian part of the Memorial (namely to places of shootings) came almost by accident-it is behind a fence with neatly covered with a wicket. If you go deep into the forest, on the right side you can see the path along which the chaotically scattered wooden crosses hammered together with wreaths. Everything. The contrast is just staggering. And staggering illiteracy (or, unfortunately, do not even know how to say) some "visitors". Near Orthodox cross (monument to the Russian part of the Memorial) stand stands for candles, at which children's handwriting is written "Thanks for peace!", "war has passed, yay!". The feeling that children are not explained the appointment or Memorial is no need. Alas. Thanks to everyone who organized this complex and supports him in this condition every day!

  • The place is eerie, but for those interested in history will be useful. There are info-stands with excerpts from the works of historians, figures, photographs. Now construction is a large museum complex.

  • In my opinion, an attempt to tell "what happened" and "why.". How lucky, I don't know. Everyone decides for themselves what arguments for it are in this not an easy situation. I think all that should be there, you can learn.

  • Best to take a guide. Though costs 800 rubles, but it's worth it. This cost includes a tour of the memorial complex and visiting the two museums.

  • All very concisely, without much pomp. There are several booths at which tells the story of this place. Everything is done in order to come to remember the fallen and leave. Place leaves heavy residue on your soul.
