Heinz Wehmeier expresses his love for Belarus

ZHODINO, 18 November (BelTA) - Belarus has become my home country, and I love this country very much, Deputy Chairman of the Federal Union of Friendship Societies of Germany Heinz Wehmeier, a participant of the 11th meeting of representatives of the twin cities of Belarus and Germany on 18-20 November, told BelTA.

Heinz Wehmeier visited Belarus for the first time in 1992 and since then the multilateral relations with the country have become a part of his life. He is from the city of Wittenberg, which in 2018 hosted the 10th addition of the meeting of twin cities of Belarus and Germany. Wittenberg is traditionally a partner of Belarusian Mogilev.

Heinz Wehmeier sees as important that 2022 has been declared the Year of Historical Memory in Belarus. “Today historical memory is more important than ever. Given the current international realities, it is as relevant as ever,” he said.

The German guest said that just a month ago a ceremony took place to reinter the remains of four Soviet soldiers, accidentally discovered in the vicinity of Wittenberg. “The ceremony showed that the city's residents cherish the memory of Soviet soldiers,” he said.

The program of the 11th meeting of representatives of the twin cities of Belarus and Germany includes a visit to the Belarusian city of Zhodino to get familiar with its development.
