Address to participants of commemorative events timed to 75th anniversary of Minsk Ghetto destruction

    Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko sent an address to Belarusians and foreign delegations who take part in commemorative events timed to the 75thanniversary of the Minsk Ghetto destruction.

    The abhorrent crimes against humanity committed during the Second World War seared into people’s memory. It was 75 years ago when the Minsk Ghetto was liquidated; however people still feel the agonizing pain inflicted by this tragedy. “This pain is for old people, children, women and men who were ruthlessly murdered just because of their ethnic background. Over 100,000 Jews went through a real hell here – starvation, cold, humiliation and tortures,” the head of state said.
