Photographic Exhibition: Brest Fortress in Belarus

15th February 2010, 09:00, St Aidan's College, Durham University

From Monday 15 February to Saturday 20 February 2010 St Aidan's College Durham will play host to a temporary exhibition of photographs of Brest Fortress in Belarus. Today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fortress, originally built as a defensive measure after Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 had by 1914 become the largest military complex in the Russian Empire. Today it is a Memorial Complex to the Fallen.

The photographs range in date from 1886 to 2008 and tell the fortress's story. As the Russians would say Иди и смотри - Eedee ee Smotry 'Come See !
