The staff of the Embassy of the Republic of Belarus in the Turkish Republic met with the Belarusian diaspora at the "Portakal Çiçeği" Art Gallery in Ankara on July 23 as part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
The audience was presented with the "Forest Song", an informational and illustrative project prepared by the National Library of Belarus on the occasion of the memorable date. The documents for the project were taken from the National Library of Belarus and the National Archives of the Republic of Belarus collections.
The guests of the event had an opportunity to touch the history of the Belarusian partisan movement through documents of that time: handwritten notes, leaflets, propaganda posters, newspapers, photographs, sketches, excerpts from short stories, poems and songs.
Mr Viktor Rybak, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Belarus to the Republic of Turkey, greeted the guests with a welcoming speech.
