This year, the action in memory of the victims of Stalinist repression, “The Night of the Executed Poets”, took place in at least 38 cities around the world.

The mourning event “The Night of the Executed Poets”, which has been held since 2017 in Kourapaty near Minsk, had to change format for the first time. This year Belarusians all over the world read the poems of performed poets online or posted recorded videos. The reasons for the departure of traditional readings at the site of mass execution of Belarusians by the Stalinists are obvious – the difficult situation due to the coronavirus and the threat of detention of the participants.
