Today, on 6 November, heads of the diplomatic missions of European Union Member States, Switzerland, the Chargé d'Affaires of the United States of America in Belarus, as well as ambassadors and other colleagues from embassies of Eastern Partnership countries working in Belarus, made a visit to Kurapaty.  It has become a tradition for diplomats serving in Minsk to gather on or around Dzyady, the time of year when Belarusians honour the memory of their forefathers, and visit sites such as Kurapaty and Trastyanets to commemorate the tragic fate of the victims of mass deportations and exterminations perpetrated by the 20th century totalitarian regimes.
