The exposition also tells about places of mass destruction and about those who committed atrocities.

Some sections are devoted to the Blagovshchina land, where mass executions took place, "Special Action 1005", murders in the Shashkovka land, where an oven to destroy people was built. The main attention is given to the biographical portraits of the Trostenets victims.
