Usually the search for one’s roots starts with an anecdote, a blurred photo, a letter from days gone by, memories.
Over the centuries, Belarus belonged to different nations, was the setting for wars, displacements, the holocaust. No other country in Europe had to endure so much suffering and destruction as this little country in which countless human tragedies and destinies occurred, at the crossroads between cultures, between east and west, between the Slavonic and the European world. Architectural remains, archives, cemeteries (including numerous Jewish cemeteries and war cemeteries from both World Wars) and ultimately the inhabitants all bear witness to this today.
