On March 22, 1943, the Belarusian village of Khatyn was completely burned together with all its inhabitants. 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.
