Life is Beautiful when you are alive.
Located on a small #island on the #svislach #river making its way through the historic Trinity district of #minsk, this place is accessible via a footbridge and is known as the 'Isle Of Tears'. It is a #war #monument dedicated to the soldiers who perished in the nine-year conflict involving Soviet forces in Afghanistan (1979 - 1988). Built at the end of the war in 1988, the island's focal point is a small chapel surrounded by statues of mothers, sisters, widows and daughters who were left to mourn the dead. Inside the #chapel , +700 names of #belarus soldiers who died in the war can be found but the crying does not stop it seems as another #statue of a young angel continues to literally shed tears for the victims of violent conflict worldwide.
