By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of May 8, 1945, May 9 was declared a Victory Day. The most terrible chapter of world history was over. At the cost of millions of lives, the Soviet people not only defended the independence and existence of their homeland, but also saved humanity from fascism. This memory is passed down from one generation to another as reflected in art, cinema, etc.
The online exhibition presents the works of Soviet artists who participated in the Great Patriotic War and of the post-war genepation. A number of the works are on display for the first time. It was most important for the artists to pay tribute to the memory, show gratitude and respect for those who, with their great struggle and unparalleled courage, liberated their native land.
