    Looking at such photos you understand that the war was not so long ago. In today's school, history classes would have to take apart such photos as a class.

    It’s a very interesting idea, and rightly so, it will be more clear for children what war is, especially for those who live in those parts.
    We worked as a locksmith, a war veteran, unfortunately, had already forgotten his name. So he was in besieged Leningrad, still a kid of 18 years old. He was lucky, he didn’t even get wounded in battles. So he told me how, on some river, it seems near the city of Oranienbaum (you tell me), like spring, the Germans seized the western bank like winter, ours knocked the Germans out on the ice. The West Bank was covered with an impossible number of corpses, our corpses. In winter, there was nowhere to hide from bullets, they were hiding behind mountains of corpses, they recognized someone by sight, who was still there yesterday, and now defended their comrades-in-arms with their bodies ... The hunger was no less terrible than the bullets. There was simply nothing to eat. Several of his guys agreed, and in the 40-degree frost, having managed to ask the commander for time off, they found grub on the "road of life" and this is how: the Germans bombed, and, of course, some cars went under the ice. At the polynya, the driver sat, if he survived. His fate was clear - a penal battalion. The boys found this and agreed - we take the flour to the surface - and one bag is ours. Obviously, he gladly agreed. The boys took turns undressing and natling. They pulled it out, somehow warmed up, I don't understand myself, and dragged the flour to the front line, to the unit. The flour did not soak all of it, only a little that touched the bag. This is how the famine was saved. Here's a blockade story.
