National Library of Belarus: Zvyazda 100-Year Digital Archive Is Being Created. “In 2018 – the Year of Native Land in Belarus – the National Library of Belarus looks forward to gathering digital copies of the newspaper Zvyazda for 100 years…. The newspaper is unique as it was one of the first periodicals to cover the most significant historical events of our Motherland: the proclamation of the BSSR, the annexation of Western Belarus to the BSSR, the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, the liberation of Belarus from fascism, etc. During the Great Patriotic War, the newspaper was published underground.”
