Military Medical museum with the Committee for external relations of St. Petersburg organize a special online program for the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War of Soviet People with Nazy Germany.
We remember the Defenders of the Soviet Union who gave their lives for its freedom, as well as those who returned from the battlefields. Our focus this week is on the work of doctors at the front and in the rear. During the Great Patriotic war of 1941-1945, their efforts brought back more than 17 million military personnel, soldiers and officers. Totally, more than 22 million military personnel passed through medical institutions of the Soviet Union. Rescue of the wounded began on the front line, when nurses, medical instructors and paramedics performed their task under enemy fire without sparing their own lives. The average life span of a sanitary engineer on the front line in 1941 was 40 seconds.
Every day you will find multimedia projects and stories about people and events that brought the Great Victory closer, amazing stories from the life of doctors, unknown pages of the war. During this period, you will have a unique opportunity to walk through the new exhibition spaces of the Military Medical museum dedicated to the World War II, including museum of memory of the victims of nazism, museum of the military medical service of the Soviet army.
Also everyone will be able to tell us about their close relatives who passed the war, to present materials related to their fate. Up-to-date information is available on the website and social networks of the Military Medical museum.
