We offer a book exhibition timed to the 75th anniversary of the beginning of the Belorussian Strategic Offensive Operation of the Red Army (Bogration) in summer 1944. The display runs in the Belarusian literature reading room (205), from May 17 to August 8.
Three long years Europe had waited for the liberation, and the successful Soviet army’s Operation Bogration (June 23–August 29,1944) brought people hope for a long-awaited liberation from Nazi invaders and better life. The Wehrmacht suffered heavy losses in manpower and equipment in Belarus, and Germany was not able to recover from that until the end of the war. Operation Bagration completely cleaned our country from German invasion.
The exhibition presents encyclopedias, monographs, collective collections, conference proceedings and periodicals, which will tell about the preparation of the offensive, the beginning, the course of the liberation operation and its results, as well as the campaign participants. About 90 publications are on display.
The opening hours of the exhibition correspond to the library’s opening hours.
Admission is by library card or by ticket of the library's social and cultural center. Information and tickets may be obtained at the registration desk.
