Three Belarusian partisans (one woman and two men) were hanged from a gate of Minsk Yeast Generator Plant by Nazi in Minsk (Belarus, U.S.S.R.) on 10/26/1941. The man was identified as Kiril Trus. The boy at the age of 16 years was identified as Volodia Shcherbatsevich (his mother was hanged from a crossbar in front of the building of National Academy of Science of Belarus on the same day; please see Hanging Belarusian Partisans in Minsk (Belarus, U.S.S.R.) on 10/26/1941 (Set Three). The hanged girl was officially identified as "unknown." They were members of the resistance in Minsk during Nazi occupation. They were hanged by soldiers of the Lithuanian auxiliary troops under the command of Major Impulyavichus.
Lately the hanged girl was identified as Masha Bruskina who was a Jewess. This girl was also identified as Shura Linevich as well. One woman also identified this girl as Natasha who worked at the Minsk Military Hospital as a nurse assistance. Unfortunately no one could provide good quality photo images for her identifictaion. And this hanged girl is still identified as "unknown." We found one episode from an unknown movie (apparently it was made in Israel) about execution of Masha Bruskina and put it on the website. Belarus government is still denying the fact that the hanged girl was Masha Bruskina.
Wiki Article: Masha Bruskina
|This is Masha Bruskina - the antiSemitism in Belarus accounts for the reluctance to officially recognize her heroism.|
|It is Masha Bruskina, according to all other websites/books. I also read that she kept refusing to face the crowd; finally she involuntarily faced the crowd as she was kicking and struggling to her death.|
