Reconciliation Monument

Reconciliation Monument (May 2013)

In 2006 a monument was unveiled on the road leading up to the Raifsky Bogoroditsky Monastery in a ceremony attended by the President of Tatarstan, the director of the FSB and other officials, including those from the monastery and Muslim representatives. The monument is entitled the Reconciliation Monument and is dedicated to bringing people together after the tragic 20th century history of the region and country. At the foot of the monument is a sculpture of a book listing the names of the three Cheka officers and mentioning the four soldiers and the priests who were killed in the protest which took place as the officers attempted to close the monastery.
