Hatyn

Hatyn is a memorial in Belarus, created in memory of the 186 Belarussian villages that were destroyed in World War II. nearly a fourth of the Belarussian population was exterminated by the Nazis on their march to Moscow. the statue that greets you on the way in was one of the most moving images for me. it depicts an old man carrying a young boy - the only two survivors from the village of Hatyn.
