History

The History of Khatyn

On the eve of the guerrillas shelled German column. A German officer, Hans Völke, was killed during the shelling. Captain Hans Völke was the 1936 Olympic champion

As the partisans disappeared in the direction of the village, German soldiers soon appeared in this village.

People were driven into the barn and waited. Men, women and children who tried to escape were shot at close range. Only three children and one adult managed to escape. This man was 56-year-old blacksmith Joseph Kaminsky. Having regained consciousness, burned and wounded, he found among the corpses of fellow villagers the body of his son. This tragic event is the basis of the main sculpture of the memorial complex Khatyn.
