Meetings with labour and educational collectives were hosted by Belarus throughout the year, and memory exercises and exhibitions were launched in educational facilities. Numerous commemorative activities were undertaken, including republican-level gatherings, forums for regional youth debate, a film competition, and the creation and implementation of trip routes.

The speeches of the head of the major department summarised the large-scale activity in the Year of Historical Memory at the conclusion event.

Speakers summed up the results of the outgoing year and shared the results of joint patriotic and educational events.

The winners of the video contest, which were created as part of the initiative "Recall everything. Remember Everyone", were announced in a solemn setting. A skilled jury selected the top video clips, which were then shown to the general public.

An award ceremony was given for the contestants in accordance with the findings of a review of exhibits about the extermination of the Belarusian people during the Great Patriotic War that were opened as part of educational institutions.
