For adherents of the anti-human ideology of fascism, human life was worth nothing. In the dark days of the great war over entire nations hung the threat of slavery and total annihilation. Nothing worse in the world has not happened. But having united forces, will and desire to live, the people of the whole world rebelled against the fascist contagion and fought against this terrible evil, not sparing themselves, fought day and night. The heroic Russian soldier, with fraternal help from the allies of various countries at the cost of inhuman efforts and deprivations, succeeded in defeating the army of an arrogant, ruthless and armed to the teeth enemy, on whose conscience there were millions of dead, hundreds of destroyed cities and burned villages.
Today, to the great regret of the living fighters against fascism and to the great shame of their descendants, attempts are being made to rehabilitate the fascist criminals, to revise the history of the Holocaust and to whitewash the accomplices of the anti-human fascist regime. Fascist crimes have no statute of limitations, which means that attempts to glorify fascism can and should be considered to be complicity in its dissemination. There should be no place for these attempts in the modern world. Mankind has paid too high a price to get rid of the brown plague. The nightmare of World War II should never happen again, and the memory of the victims of fascism should live for centuries. It all depends on you and me ...

“I remember how people fainted from the heat in the so-called bath, and then they poured cold water on them. I remember the disinfection of the barracks, after which my nose was bleeding, and the steam room, where with great “diligence” they were treating all our rags, was running nose to nose.
