Victory Day May 9th 1945

Over the years this blog covered the Victory Day (or VE Day as it’s known here) more than once. This year I will just publish a compilation of links to my previous posts.

Last year I translated several chapters of the revealing war memoirs by Nikolai Nikulin, if you didn’t get a chance to read the last time, you may find them bluntly truthful.

    Этот День ПобедыПорохом пропах,Это праздникС сединою на висках.Это радостьСо слезами на глазах.
    День Победы!
    День Победы!
    День Победы!Happy Victory Day, Meesha!

    I don’t have any relatives who participated in the war – my grandfather tried to join the air force but he was underage – but WWII was very terrible, and I hope that your grandfather’s body will be found.
