Memorial complex "Khatyn"

Step 9

The unique "Cemetery of villages" which you will not find anywhere in the world has been built on the ground of the Belorussian village of "Khatyn". 185 other Belorussian villages which shared the fate of Khatyn are also symbolically buried here. (the 186th unrestored village is Khatyn itself). The grave of the village is a symbolic site of fire. There is a pedestal in the form of a flame tip in the center. It symbolises the fact that the vilage was burnt down. There is the soil of each village in the mourning urn. The soil of each village which suffered like Khatyn and which was never restored. The name of the village and the region to which it belonged is also written by the grave.
