Belarus, Brest Fortress. The main monument is the sculptural image of a warrior and a banner.

In 1949 on the wall of the barracks the inscription was found: «1941. June, 26. We were three in number, it was difficult for us, but we have not lost courage and we die as heroes».
In the barracks of the 455th shooting regiment at three-arched gate the unknown fighter scratched a bayonet on a wall: «We will die, but we will not leave the fortress».


In 1952 in the wall of the casemate in the northwest part of defensive barracks the inscription was found out: «I am dying, but I am not surrendering! Farewell the Motherland. 20/VII-41»;

in the cellar of the White palace in 1958 – «we die without shame».The inscription "I'm dying, but not giving up! Farewell Homeland. 20/VII-41'' was found on the wall of the barracks at the Bialystok gates in 1952.
