Russian Jewish Youth Congress presents

Today young people more and more move away from the distant heroic age of the Great Patriotic War. And if the history of the country has preserved memories, the history of the Jewish people during these years is remembered by a few. Meanwhile, during the Great War, Jews became a nation, accepting the most terrible blow of Nazi brutality. In those years Jews were heroes, who fought for a united homeland for their families. It was then, during the war years, heroes of our people gained the right of all Jews to return to Eretz Yisrael.

It is essential that Jewish youth of the twenty first century will understand the scale of the disaster and the courage their people in those terrible years. Boys and girls will be able to pass the knowledge to their children only in the case if they feel that the breath of war is not only in the pages of books and photo albums, But also in the stories of veterans of the fighting parties and prisoners of concentration camps.

For the first time a project to restore the historical memory of the young people will be realized in the form of a flash mob: in one day in 50 cities of Russia Jewish communities will recall their heroes: dead or alive today. We will show young people that Jews in the World War II were heroic people, who defended their families, their people, who had won the right to live in the Holy land. Jewish youth of the country knows about the huge number of Jewish Heroes of the Soviet Union who have won the title in spite of persecution and repression. Together we will learn history, not only written in the scriptures, but the one that was written by the blood of our people.
