Chukhrai is a village in the Bryansk region. Today you can hardly find any information about it on the Internet and it is hard to believe that during World War II this place used to be a populous partisan center.
These photos are not only another proof of devastation, they are an echo of a once lively community with the people, whose life was much harder than today’s one.
The villagers were doing subsistence farming here.
Some of the houses are still in a relatively good condition but with locks on the doors.
Time spares nothing, no matter how strong it is.
Each village has its own peculiarities. Here people, for example, would build roofed gates.
The logs are numbered. Probably, the owner of the house wanted to move it to some place but he couldn’t make it.
These are two roofsÂ – wooden and slated – which seem to be reflecting the two eras.
