Collection of articles about veterans of Great Patriotic War published in Slovenia


Articles about more than 100 veterans of the Great Patriotic War and home front workers were included in the new collection "Immortal Regiment in Slovenia". The publication includes stories of the heroes' descendants living in Slovenia. The collection was published with the support of the Russian Embassy in Slovenia.

In the year of the 75th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War in Slovenia, large-scale processions of the Immortal Regiment were planned in the country's capital Ljubljana, a solemn event at the monument to Russian and Soviet soldiers, a flower-laying ceremony in the Eternal Flame. However, due to the pandemic, mass events had to be replaced.

The proposal of the organizers of the Immortal Regiment in Slovenia to tell about their ancestors and relatives who fought met with a positive reaction from Russian compatriots. The organizing committee received many interesting stories, adults and children wrote about front-line soldiers.

All authors will receive collections free of charge. An online presentation of the publication is scheduled for early December. Compatriots, whose stories have been published in the book, will share their impressions and in the project will talk about the work on memories.
