In Zhodino, employees of the prosecutor’s office meet with labor collectives and talk about the investigation into the genocide case

The President enshrined the inevitability of responsibility for the genocide by law. The Prosecutor General’s Office is doing a great deal of historically important work – investigating crimes without a statute of limitations.

More than 100 thousand people died in the Minsk ghetto. The whole world knows about this, but places of extermination of people continue to be found on the map of our country. And no matter how sad it may sound, but even after 80 years we are still opening new pages of our history. Excavations are constantly being carried out at the places of executions and tortures. The found remains are reburied. During the investigation, 90 previously unknown death camps have already been identified. The map of burned villages is also being supplemented.

The investigation of the criminal case on the genocide of our people during the Great Patriotic War is “overgrown” with new shocking details. And they are not silent. Employees of the prosecutor’s office meet with labor collectives, students and schoolchildren – everyone should know the terrible truth about the war, how the Nazis and their accomplices exterminated innocent people.

Thus, on August 23, an open dialogue was held at the Forging Plant of Heavy Forgings with the deputy prosecutor of the city of Zhodino, Yevgenia Tentevitskaya, on the topic “Investigation of the criminal case on the genocide of the Belarusian people: restoration of historical justice.”

Yevgenia Tentevitskaya shared information about the progress of the investigation of the criminal case and stressed: “The criminal process initiated by the General Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Belarus to investigate the facts of the genocide is aimed at identifying specific individuals from among the German invaders and their accomplices, who managed to avoid responsibility for the killings of civilians, bullying and torture in concentration camps and ghettos, the mass deportation of the civilian population into German slavery.

Information from the criminal case will allow international organizations to raise the issue of recognizing Belarus as a victim of the genocide, to stop attempts to devalue the historical truth.”

Questions of historical truth and justice have acquired the status of national importance. And because crimes are also carefully investigated.
