The exhibition entitled "Not To Be Forgotten" has kicked off in the Slovak capital, TASS reports. The historical and documentary exposition tells the story of the crimes of the fascists directed against the civilians of the Soviet Union in the occupied territories during the Great Patriotic War.
According to Russian Ambassador Igor Bratchikov, the exhibition once again reminds of how important it is to preserve historical memory. Bratchikov noted that it was particularly important to prevent the falsification of history, stop the development of radical and nationalist sentiments, and resist the strengthening of xenophobia and anti-Semitism in the world.
The ambassador sincerely thanked the inhabitants of Slovakia for taking care of the burial sites of Soviet soldiers who died during the liberation of the country. There are the graves of almost 64,000 soldiers and officers who gave their lives for the freedom of nations during the Second World War in Slovakia.
The exhibition was organized with the participation of the Russian Historical Society, the History of the Fatherland Foundation and Rosarkhiv.
The exposition, consisting of 30 stands, presents documentary evidence of the crimes of the Nazi regime and materials telling about the trials of Nazi criminals. It is planned that the exhibition will be brought to 22 European countries.
