The memorial in the village of Krasny Bereg is the only memorial in the world dedicated to children – victims of the Great Patriotic War. In 1943, the Nazis created a camp here, where they pumped blood from local children for hospitals of Hitler’s army. Children also were sent to hard labor in the provinces of Germany. After these violent events and death of 1990 children, a memorial appeared at this place.
The project was under the guidance of author of Khatyn complex. The memorial is opened by a sculpture of a girl, she personifies all lost children of this land. Then you can see the «Area of the Sun» and the apple garden, from which the alleys diverge in different directions representing the rays of this sun.
Particular attention is attracted by children drawings and a letter of deceased girl to her father, which definitely will make anyone cry.
