Malyi Trostenets (Belarus) – 4th largest extermination camp in Europe during WWII

On June 8, 2014, a ceremony was held on the site of the Maly Trostenets death camp, located in a Minsk, Belarus suburb, marking the commencement of construction of a memorial dedicated to the camp’s casualties. It was the fourth largest World War II death camp in Europe.

According to official statistics 206, 500 civilians from Belarus, and Western and Eastern Europe (including German, Austrian and Polish Jews) were killed there. However, based upon research findings, historians claim that this number could be as high as 500,000 people.

    Please be advised!!!!! The link about Maly Trostenets which you are sharing on your page, is a Holocaust Revisionist web site. It is highly inappropriate and offensive and detracts from the serious and excellent work you are doing on your blog .I would urge you to consider removing it.
