The exposition dedicated to the Victory Day, presents hundreds of photos and letters from the frontline, as well as personal diaries of the wartime. Visitors will be able to read interviews from different countries, where Soviet Jews lived before the war and where there live today.

The Museum presents a unique exhibit - the original of the world-known photo Victory Banner over Reichstag.

This photo together with its original negative was donated to the museum by the businessman Roman Trotsenko.
