Young soldiers clean up the fertility of thousands of years on every precaution and slow human skeletons. Bones are clothing pants and shoes slippers. These soldiers are trying to disperse the layers of history of massacre in the construction site of western Belarus, which has very little information . Since then, specially trained soldiers have removed the bones of 1,000 Jews, who were killed in Brest City during the occupation of Nazi Germany.
“The holes in the head are clearly visible i,” says Dmitry Kaminsky, a soldier in Belarus. Their team usually works to find the skeleton of Soviet soldiers. Here they also got the heads of small children and women also got skeletons who had children in their lap. According to Dmitry, “the people were shot from behind in the head and the face of all the bodies was down in the grave. The Nazis dug the trenches and people were shot, they fell into it, then they were shot. ”
Before World War II, the total population of Breast City was 50,000, of which half were Jews. In June 1941, a few days after Germany captured it, 5,000 people were killed. Those who escaped were limited to closed habitations (Ghetto). In October 1942 it was ordered that they should be destroyed too. They were taken to the forest 100 kilometers away from the goods train. Thousands of people were shot at Bronnaya Gora at the mouth of a big pit and shot.
The museum in Brest is in a room in a basement. Which the Jewish community has created and they take care of it. In it there are live stories of the survivors of Jews who have saved their lives for months after staying in the roofs of their home and behind the walls. There is also a City Register which was kept by the Germans. It records a record of 15 October 1942 in which 17,893 Jews have been mentioned in the city. This number has been cut in the second day’s record. “We know that the people of Ghetto were also killed,” says the leader of the community, Ephim Basin.
He suspected that some corpses would be found at the construction site, but they would never meet, they never thought. He says that “It shows how little we know about our history.” The future of the Jews of Belarus has always been associated with the great disaster that took place there during the occupation. According to Ephim, It was very sad that Jews were not killed because they were opposing the Nazis, they were killed because they were Jews.”
The Jewish graveyard had demolished the Nazis, which the Soviet Union had repaired. The tombs were covered with clay and a sports stadium was built on it. According to Alla Kondak associated with the city’s cultural department, “some people say that they are building a house on the corpses. But we will stop the work only when the skeleton will stop.” The German soldiers used to bury people wherever they used to be killed. But it seems that very few people are aware of this incident with the Jews.
