A brief excerpt from the chronicle “Military Minsk”

In this article we will briefly introduce you to the upcoming excursion – “Military Minsk”. Since 1974, the city of Minsk is a hero city. This title our town received for the activities of the underground organizations during the occupation of Minsk by Germany fascist troops during the Great Patriotic War. The war was a great challenge for the city. More than 80% of the housing stock was destroyed, bridges were demolished, whole buildings were mined. But the most devastating were human losses – the population of the city decreased by more than 5 times.

The occupation of the city lasted from June 28, 1941 to July 3, 1944. The invaders established the so-called “New order”. But in fact it was a real bloodthirsty regime. To implement the monstrous Generalplan “Ost” in Minsk and its district, concentration camps were created, among which the camp “Trostinets” — the fourth camp in terms of the number of victims in Europe, were according to official data 206.5 thousand people were killed.
