Minsk International Book Fair

The 21st edition of the Minsk International Book Fair brought together over 600 exhibitors from 26 countries on 5-9 February. This year’s exhibition offers a great number of remarkable publishing projects. Among them is “Encyclopedia of Belarusian Hockey” released in the run-up to the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, the album “Book Culture. Vetka” that features rare publications of Belarusian, Russia and Ukrainian first printers, and a facsimile edition of the rarest 12th-century manuscript “Polotsk Gospel”…. A unique exhibition “Searching for the Lost” opened as part of the exhibition. The major themes of the forum are the First World War (the year 2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WW1) and the 70th anniversary of Belarus’ liberation from the Nazi invaders.
