In 2005, the Russian people are celebrating 60 years of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. Victory Day, traditionally celebrated on 9 May. Joy and sorrow, grief and euphoria infused in the soul of people during this holiday. Great victory came at great cost. More than 14 million Soviet citizens did not return to their families, left on the battlefield. About 11 thousand people died a horrible death in the German camps. Another 4,500 thousand were captured by the Nazis where not only many managed to save their lives. Among the civilians were millions dead. Only one survived the Leningrad blockade is not more than 800 thousand citizens.
Heavy were the times and the people who remained in the rear of the battles. Their heroic work on the edge of its capabilities, to the front of ammunition and military equipment, uniforms and food. Their contribution to the victory over fascism is on a par with the courage and heroism of the partisans and soldiers of the glorious Red Army.
Thanks to the courage and dedication, labor and military feats of our grandparents, our parents and children live under the peaceful skies of their homeland.
