MINSK, 22 June (BelTA) – The book “Operation Bagration. Partisans of the Belarusian Land...” was presented in Brest on 22 June, BelTA has learned. 

A round table dedicated to the defense of the historical truth about the Great Patriotic War was held at the Brest Fortress Defense Museum. During the event, the book “Operation Bagration. Partisans of the Belarusian Land...”  was presented. The book was published as part of the “The Union State Library” project. The illustrated edition is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of Belarus' liberation from the Nazi invaders. The authors tried to make the book interesting to schoolchildren, adults and historians.

“On the day the Great Patriotic War began, we invited credentialed experts to share their thoughts on what needs to be done today to preserve the historical truth, to education people, primarily the youth from Russia, Belarus, the CIS countries and friendly nations, about the feat of the Soviet military and the Soviet people who defeated fascism,” said State Secretary of the Union State Dmitry Mezentsev. “Today we are presenting the third book of “The Union State Library” project, which is “Operation Bagration. Partisans of the Belarusian Land...”

This unique book was created in collaboration with the archival community of Belarus and Russia, the defense and justice ministries. Ordinary people contributed documents from family archives. The first copies of the book were sent to Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The publication contains exclusive photographs, drawings, combat leaflets, which have not been published before. “We want both the book and the flash card to be available in educational institutions of Belarus and Russia in the coming weeks and months. This book should not be just another new arrival on a library shelve, but provoke a meaningful discussion,” Dmitry Mezentsev emphasized.

The round table was attended by Belarusian and Russian government officials, journalists, historians, museum and archive staff. Some speakers joined the event online.
