And one of the most horrific pages in the history of the war is the tragedy of Khatyn, which occurred 75 years ago. And in order to honor the memory of the Khatyn martyrs and residents of all villages burned by the aggressors during the war, with the support of the Oktyabrskaya district organization of the Grodno branch of the “Belarusian Peace Foundation”, a regional quiz “Among the schoolchildren of Oktyabrsky district of Grodno” “They shared the fate of Khatyn”.
