Geocache Description:


Pieminekli Balvu pilsētas centrā atklāja 2006.gada 23.augustā. 
Tēlnieka Matiasa Jansona Latvijas kontūru formā veidotais akmens simbolizē sāpju ceļa sašķelto zemi. Otrais simboliskais šķēlums simbolizē no Latvijas atšķelto Abreni un sešus pagastus. Uz pieminekļa plāksnes rakstīts "Vienīgais svētums uz zemes - dzīvība". 
Piemineklis veltīts Abrenes apriņķa izsūtītajiem, kas deportēti gan lielajās deportācijās, gan arestēti, iznīcināti, cietuši citos padomju režīma laikos. 1941.gada 14.jūnijā no Abrenes apriņķa izsūtīti 444 iedzīvotāji, 1949.gada 25.-29.martā no Viļakas apriņķa uz Sibīriju izvestas 342 ģimenes - kopā 1709 cilvēki. Nozīmīgi, ka piemineklis nes Abrenes apriņķa vārdu, jo Balvu rajons ir kādreizējā Abrenes apriņķa lielākā daļa.
