This book is about people and their destinies. About destines that were changed by World War II forever. These people have given the best years of their lives to the War. They have gone trough the War, lost their friends and relatives and came back to empty houses to start their lives from the very beginning. And they are definitely worth to be remembered as heroes.
These veterans are short-lived as a Polaroid film. And I have a great pleasure when I see how their eyes sparkle when they tell me their life stories, look at their photos, and sign them, leaving a trace not only on the cover of the photo but also in the history. And I realize that all of them are still that young men and women that they were, because the soul has no age.
 “New wars rock the world. War is nigh even now. It seems that the old war is less important in the face of a new one. No need to remember it. But the truth is that new wars start only when old ones are erased from mankind’s memory. People born under peaceful skies with no knowledge of war are not afraid of it and do not do all they can to avoid it.” Marina Akhmedova
Concerning the latest events between Russia and Ukraine this project becomes even more important than before. People who remember the war will never start it again. Veterans hardly imagine the war between Ukrainians and Russians. A veteran from Moscow said “We fought for the same country and in the same army during the World War II and now we kill each other, brother kills brother. It is the greatest tragedy.”
