At Khatyn Memorial, see the sculpture of the only survivor of Khatyn--a village burned by the Nazi punishment battalion in World War II. The 6 m (19.7 ft) tall bronze sculpture represents a grieving father holding the lifeless body of his son. The sculpture stands amid 26 bare chimneys with bells--creating an image of a burned village. The bells of Khatyn ring every hour to remind people about this horrible crime against humanity. The memorial was built on the site of the former village in 1969. A handful of soil from each of the 185 burned Belarusian villages was brought to Khatyn to create a symbolic graveyard.

Khatyn Memorial Reviews
Очень печально, но такие места обязательно стоит посещать, особенно молодому поколению.Обязательно возьмите экскурсовода, без него Вы не поймете или даже не узнаете много того , что таит в себе этот м... more »Very sad, but such places are definitely worth visiting, especially the younger generation. Be sure to take a tour guide, without it you will not understand or even learn a lot of what hides this memorial and how it was almost removed, and why the Territory Memorial Walk with a drooping head, and of course all the horror of the concentration camps and dead people.
Сюда обязательно нужно привозить подростков, проводить уроки мужества и памяти. Скорбное место. Сильное эмоциональное воздействие. more »It is necessary to bring teenagers, to hold lessons of courage and memory. A sorrowful place. Strong emotional impact.
Amazing, must see!
An unusual place. It is difficult to describe the atmosphere and all the feelings when you are among these monuments of human cruelty. A special sensation is causing by the bells ringing for the deads. At the same time there is some kind of harmony here. This place is definitely worth a visit. The entrance is free.
