Belarus post issued a postage stamp to mark 70 years of United Nations, reminding us the end of World War II and the founding of the United Nations (1945-2015).
The largest conflict in human history embroiled most nations around the world and caused destruction and massacres which led to over sixty million victims.
The memory of these events must not only be kept alive, but continually renewed, as a commemoration and a warning to future generations.
