 Exhibition “Destinies during the Great Patriotic War: Letters and Memoirs of Jewish Red Army Soldiers” has been opened in the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow.

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.

During the exhibition - till June 9 – experts will continue collecting the materials on participation of Jews in the Great Patriotic War. There will also take place meetings with veterans and members of their families.
