A unique interactive museum of forgotten front-line items is being created in St. Petersburg. The organizers are still expecting Russians to send the photos of things that belonged to their family members who participated in the Great Patriotic War.
“The memory of the war is not only and not so much historical research, holiday demonstrations, or St. George ribbons. Living memory is stored in the family and passes from generation to generation, including in the form of front-line things: flasks, commander’s clocks, bowlers,” the authors of the project note.
The project organizers have already received the feedback. The best stories based on the results of a readers’ choice will be included in the fund of the Interactive Museum of Forgotten Frontline Things, which can be visited from anywhere in the world.
