Study mission in Belarus

The first period of our European study mission was undertaken in Belarus in April 2013: the sites of destruction and most of the commemorative locations can indeed be observed only in Spring and Summer due to climatic conditions. This region is of particular interest because it contains sites linked to the experience of various mass violence of 20th century and especially gives access to one of the most important sites of the Holocaust, the Malyj Trotsnets extermination camp (that includes a secondary mass grave and a crematorium), which is still a relatively little documented site.
