Genocide: I am Witness -"The road of life" for hundreds of refugees was the last (22.08.11)

When the Georgian infantry entered Tskhinval on August 8, shooting everyone and everything in its way, south-western outskirts of the city got the brunt of the attack. Eyewitnesses tell about the tragedy that occurred here, and about the heroism of volunteers embarked on the path of the uninvited guests.

Civilians were the most vulnerable in these circumstances. They had to hide in the basements of houses, where they were caught by an unexpected assault on the town.

Diane Kadzhaeva a teacher of junior school № 5 together with her neighbors was hiding in the basement of house number 118 on the street October, where she lived with her family. Recent years, Diane was working on a special program, called "Harmony." It should be noted that, thanks to her tireless work, her high commitment in her class were no underachieving  and weak children. Above the entrance to the fifth school  there was a placard: "At school number 5, all should be on the "5", and Diana’s work really corresponded this motto.

Her school colleague Hughes Bekoeva recalls: "She always came to school long before the first lesson. If someone of the students did not reach the "Good mark", She remained after classes and explained individually to each child passed material. Both children and parents loved and honored their teacher. "

She had a lot of certificates and prizes from the Ministry of Education of South Ossetia, and Education Department. In addition, Diana Kadzhaeva itself has developed and successfully implemented a new methodology in studying of the multiplication table and writing essays on a given topic. All these developments are used by her colleagues now. Hardly any of them, closing the school door at the end of school year 2008, could suggest that it would be the last school year in the fate of so many people ... 

A terrible confusion that has settled in South Ossetia on 8-9 August, became a tragic historical event, which has divided our life into before and after the August 2008. Thousands of civilians, faced with imminent death, under thundering shells in search of salvation rushed to the Rescue Zar Road. Alas, for hundreds of them it was the last road…

Every day the situation was getting worse and it seemed unpredictable: Georgian military forces seized the 12-th school, which was located directly in front of the house where Diana Kadzhaeva lived. Seeing this picture, she and her neighbors decided to leave. How could they have known this decision would be the road of death for them? Hoping to escape from hell, reigned in those days all over the city, she, along with her neighbor Edward Gagloyev and his wife Zalina bumped right on the Georgian non-humans, who stopped the car and seeing there defenseless refugees, coolly shot them and threw a grenade into the car. The car immediately burst and turned into a fiery torch. Only a pile of metal left from this machine. I myself saw what was left of it, and it is difficult to believe that there were real people in the car. 

The witnesses gathered ashes of the dead in small bags and handed over to their relatives so that they could bury what was left of the dead.

Then Diana's sister, Ina said her father, a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, Sergei Vladimirovich, who a few years ago, completely lost his sight: 

- Dad, how I envy you that you do not see what left of our Diana.
