How can we orget?Meanwhile, partisans vowed to avenge the invasion and rid theircountry o their enemies, working day and night, as never beore seenin history.Over 1.5m Belarus-born people ought on the various ronts o theGreat Patriotic War, standing to the bitter end near Moscow, Leningrad,Stalingrad and Kiev. They helped liberate villages and towns across theirHomeland, as well as those in Eastern and Central Europe. Around 400Belarus-born residents became generals and admirals, commandingarmy and naval units during the war years. Meanwhile, 448 Belarusianswere awarded the high title o Hero o the Soviet Union, or theirheroism and dignity in deending their Fatherland. Four people wereawarded this title twice. Those sad years saw a third o Belarusians perish; it was the priceo reedom. While we remember, others also need to be aware o whatoccurred. Ater WWII, Belarus helped ound the Organisation o theUnited Nations — an honour held by ew states. Belarus was chosenamong the republics o the Soviet Union or its great contribution indeeating Fascism.May is a special month, marking victory over Fascism in WWII.Belarus reverently honours soldiers’ heroic deeds. Even today,around 50,000 ex-servicemen and partisans o the Great PatrioticWar reside here, although they are ewer in number each year.Our veterans continue to receive state attention and support andVictory Day remains sacred. The Great Patriotic War has let itslegacy, yet remembered in Belarus, although other countries maychoose to orget. Today’s teenagers sometimes have the opportunity to meet thosewar heroes. Without doubt, the experience is signiicant, leadingsome to seek out soldiers who died in the war, restoring the named o unknown soldiers. Some ‘adopt’ veterans, paying regular visits. Theyremember and are aware o the war and honour the victors. Time passes and the world is changing, but the truth cannot beuntold. Belarus is building relations with other countries, based on goodneighbourly relations, ollowing our contemporary political credo. The best contests worthily reveal the strongest, as in sport, wherecompetition remains peaceul, despite the sharpest struggle. The essence o international co-operation is partnership, asBelarus knows, orienting its oreign policy towards mutual relationswith other countries. The nation’s political priorities were recentlydisclosed in the President’s annual State o the Nation Address tothe Belarusian People and the National Assembly. Our magazineincludes a summary o the text, allowing readers to better under-stand the position o the country in its quest to be a ully-edgedpartner, open to the widest contacts.Many partners o Belarus have already elt the benet o economicinteraction, including neighbouring Lithuania Mvng Fwd detailsthe recent Belarusian-Lithuanian Forum, as well as new initiatives byour two countries’ governments. MeMory d S ome deeds are untouched by the passing o time.Undoubtedly, Victory Day — celebrated on May9th — is a date which never loses its signiicance.Contemporary events do not overshadow its impor-tance, as we continue to remember the unprecedentedand enduring heroism o Soviet soldiers. The Great Patriotic War subdued Belarusian lands like a steam roller,leaving around 3 million people dead and 209 cities, towns and districtcentres destroyed, alongside over 9,000 villages; 380,000 Belarusianswere taken as slaves to Germany and, in the years o occupation, theNazi ran over 260 death camps on Belarusian territory.
