Belarus, Minsk, and Babruisk Maps

As this (U.S.) Library of Congress chronology of Belarus illustrates, the town of Shchedrin has passed from one country to another as armies surged through the countryside. In 1918, it was part of Germany; by 1919, it had once again become part of Russia (Belorussian Soviet Socialist Republic [SSR]). Two years later, part of Belorussia belonged to Poland, the rest to Russia.
