The Union of Russian Societies in Sweden will hold a memorial day for Soviet sailors kept at the Bühringe camp. The event will take place on September 25 near the former camp, the program includes a flower-laying ceremony and an introductory tour of memorial sites, the website of the Union of Russian Societies in Sweden reports.

Every year the Union organizes events in these places in memory of the Soviet sailors who were kept in the Swedish camp in September 1941. This year marks 80 years since those sad events.

The descendants of the sailors come to the place where the camp was located, walk through the places connected with the destinies of their ancestors, and share memories and stories.

Several years ago, a film was made about Soviet sailors who ended up in the Swedish camp shortly after the start of the Great Patriotic War. It tells about the camp and the circumstances, which led to the imprisoment of the Soviet soldiers.
