The Museum of Fighting Glory was opened on August 9, 2000 in Trypillya (in Trypillian secondary school), based on materials from the Museum of Komsomol’s Glory and the villagers.
Every city, village and every person, has its own unique face, its own biography, its own destiny. Years and centuries will pass, but the exploits of our compatriots will never be forgotten. Our museum is dedicated to all the people of Trypillia who went to immortality, who survived the hardships of the war and won. The fate of every Trypillian family was scorched by war. In almost every family:
died of wounds.
Trypillia paid a high price for its will:
484 Trypillia did not return from the battlefield;
49 were shot in the Rozkopan Tract;
43 were shot by the Nazis at home;
12 tortured in the Gestapo;
14 burned in the crematoria of the concentration camps;
More than 600 young boys and girls were deported to Germany for forced labor, half of whom did not return to their homes.
The materials of the museum tell about the events that took place during the Second World War in Trypillia and its environs. About the villagers who defended their native land from fascist invaders, about the Rozkopan tract, which is in daily use called Obukhiv “Babyn Yar”, where fascists shot more than 700 civilians on the night of July 1, 1943.
