     The subject of the <i>Great Patriotic War</i> responds with pain in soul of each citizen in Belarus. Our country was the first to attack by the enemy and became an arena for large combat activities. A victory over the enemy was achieved by the value of a large number of victims. Cruelty and mass scale of the occupants’ crimes had no example in the history of new Belarus. The invaders burnt, destroyed and plundered <b>209</b> out of <b>270 </b>towns and district centers, <b>9,200</b> villages. Around three million people died.
