Striking moments of Bagration operation
Land of Courage and Glory exhibition of archive documents and photos marking 70th anniversary of liberation of Belarus from Nazis opened in foyer of convention hall of Council of the Republic
The focus of the exhibition was the biggest offensive operation by the Red Army, which liberated all Belarus, as well as part of Lithuania, Latvia and Poland. The photos turn our attention on Red Army men, partisans and civilians — including the role of women, who received their own section. Their works included helping the air force, some became snipers and many were medical workers. The exhibition featured documents showing how the economy of Belarus recovered in the post-war years.
