On 6 November, the heads of diplomatic missions of EU Member States, Switzerland, the Chargé d'affaires of the United States of America in Belarus, as well as ambassadors and colleagues from embassies of Eastern Partnership countries working in Belarus, visited Kurapaty.

It has become a tradition for diplomats serving in Minsk to gather on or around Dzyady (Forefather’s Eve), the time of year when Belarusians honour the memory of their ancestors. During this time they visit sites such as Kurapaty and Trastyanets to commemorate the tragic fate of the victims of mass deportations and exterminations perpetrated by the 20th century totalitarian regimes.
