The memorial complex “The Mount of Glory” was created in memory of the heroism of Soviet soldiers and in honor of the victory in the Great Patriotic War. Its construction became a nationwide affair and thousands of Belarusians brought handfuls of land.
In July 1944 during the largest offensive operation “Bagration” the German Army Group Centre was surrounded in these places. This event was named “Minsk Kettle”. The defeat of this group ended on July 11 and became one of the crucial steps on the way to the exemption of Belarus.
