The anniversary of the Battle of Berezina is remembered today in Borisov

The battle between Russian and French troops, which began on November 26, 1812, lasted three days and ended with the collapse of Napoleon's army and the flight of the French emperor. This event, which was included in the history textbooks of many countries, became the theme of the international military history festival, which was held in Borisov for many years.


The forum was canceled this year due to the pandemic. The date was celebrated in a chamber: a thematic excursion and an exhibition of military history miniatures were organized in the Borisov Library.

The memorial hall of the Borisov Central Library is dedicated to the theme of the Patriotic War of 1812. The exposition includes a collection of documents and books, samples of the uniform of Russian and French soldiers, copies of weapons of those times.
