Leningrad Siege Story

Good morning all,

Per ...

Just think of current miserable weather and then couple this to hunger - and then imagine this miserable situation for nearly another two and a half years.

Plus, while still cold and hungry, think if - your - perimeter is broken.

Today is the 75th anniversary of the blockade's end.

Thank you for remembering this date.
Those horrors, deprivations, which people experienced in conditions of famine, diseases, severe frosts, constant bombardments and heavy artillery shelling. Many thousands of ruined lives of children, women, old people.
It should never be forgotten.

Good morning Taurus,

Well received.

That's why AHF is valuable.

I'm a pragmatic realist. Here in the States, I believe WWII's major events will be forgotten.

Again, that's why AHF is a polished gemstone.

Hello, South.
Unfortunately, they are forgotten here too. As time goes by, war veterans are leaving. Now the youngest of them are 92 years old.
It helps not to forget these forgotten and these people only books. And forums like Axis.
