forever. The tragedy of the Belarusian village of Khatyn is related to one of such history moments. The example of this village served as an occasion for the creation of a memorial complex that collected all the human grief of the Great Patriotic War.
The Memorial produces an incredibly strong psychological impression on everyone who steps on its ground. Walking along the concrete paths of the deceased village, hearing the bells of mourning, seeing the silhouettes of the burnt houses, you will learn a lot more about occupation than books can teach.
You will hear about the number of villages destroyed and about the size of the concentration camps, feel the unprecedented energy of this mournful place and the size of the tragedy that fell on ordinary Belarusian people. The name of Khatyn became a symbol of the human cruelty and insanity that should never be repeated.
