Lutsk locals commemorated the victims of Nazi concentration camps. More than a hundred of people got together to remember their relatives and friends. After the prayer people put flowers to the monument.

Nowadays there are 94 people in the region, who survived Nazi oppression. Antonina Melnychuk is one of them. She says those times were very difficult for her. The date of commemorating the victims of concentration camps is not accidental. On 11 April 1944 the troops of the anti-Hitler coalition liberated the prisoners of the Buchenwald concentration camp. In some time the UN made a decision to define this day as international day of the captives’ release.
