In Autumn 1943

In Autumn 1943

These are the photos from the big military and historical reconstruction devoted to the 69th anniversary of Kiev liberation from the fascist conquerers.
800 people from more than ten countries took part in the event. They all travelled back to early November, 1943.

In the field conditions, under the rain, appeared a camp of the Red Army, some miles away, in trenches and dugouts, the Wehrmacht occupied its defensive positions.

On the last day of the festival they made a reconstuction of the battle that took place on the third of November, 1943 right here. More than thirty units of military equipment were used.

  1. No. Do the Americans recreate how they killed the Indians by influenza infection, or do Germans recreate concentration camps, or do Christians recreate witch burning? Or do you just say that the liberation of Kiev was in the same league of crimes?

  2. Nice tribute.
    But did the ukrainians really wanted to be occupieduh sorry I mean “liberated” by Satan Stalin ?
    anyway the tribute is nice.
    Now a tribute to the Ukrainian holodomor that happened earlier, before fashist occupation

  3. RIP to all the brave people I can never forget what they did to Stalingrad I watch the movie many times so I dot forget. Its so sad that so many had to die and for what?

    • If you want the complete picture, have some Poles turn down Soviet offers for an alliance against Germany, prior to the non-aggression pact and Katyn.
