State Memorial Complex "Khatyn"
Today you will not find this small Belorussian village on any of the most detailed geographic map... It was destroyed by fascists in spring 1943.
Khatyn, a former village in Logoisk region of Minsk area in Belarus, has become a symbol of the tragedy of the Belorussian people, a mournful page in the history of the Great Patriotic War.
A great memorial complex was built where the village stood, and now this memorial is famous around the world. It reminds us of the sacrifice that the Belarusian people have given in the years of war. Khatyn reveres the memory of nearly three million Belarusians who died during the Great Patriotic War (World War 2).
During the excursion you will see the sculpture of the "Unbowed man". The sculpture depicts Yuzif Kaminsky, the only person to survive the massacre, holding his dead son Adam. Also you will have a look at the place where the shed stood in which the villagers were burnt. The complex has 26 chimneys with bells - one for each of the houses in the village - which ring out every minute. Each chimney has a nameplate where listed family members who died...
There is also the cemetery of villages (the only in the whole world), and memory wall with figures about victims of Nazi in every region of Belarus. Also there is a small museum with photo gallery on the territory of memorial complex.
Another place you will visit during this excursion is the Mount of Glory with the Eternal flame. It is a memorial complex dedicated to Soviet soldiers who fought during World War II, which is situated on the 19th kilometer of Moscow road.
