Opening of the cross in memory of the Russian prisoners of the First World War near Vienna


“A cemetery is a symbol of how people treat their history. We must preserve this monument for future generations as a sign of joint respect for the fallen, ”said Christian Gepp, the burgomaster of Korneuburg, who was present at the ceremony.

The initiators of the improvement of the site and the installation of the monument were made by volunteers from the local organization "Military Partnership", consisting of former military personnel, police officers and firefighters. The project also helped the military and civilian authorities.

During the ceremony, an guard of honor of members of the “Military Partnership” lined up near the eight-pointed Orthodox cross, and the Russian diplomats present, deputies of the Federation Council and the State Duma, soldiers of the Austrian armed forces and the Russian military attache, and city representatives laid red carnations and wreaths at the monument.

After the ceremony, the guests went to the Russian embassy in Vienna for the presentation of the “Book of Memory”, containing information about all the known graves of Russian prisoners of war of the First World War in Austria. This is the first project of cataloging the burials of the First World War period, carried out by the Russian embassy and the Black Cross public organization with the support of the Austrian Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation.

    In Russia there are only 2 World War I museums and I don’t know more than one monument or memorial. This is our memory and our history. Already, at least something is being done in this direction. All of Europe has a memorial day for the victims of World War I. I think we should have such a day

      By the way, "Ukrainian" originated on the territory of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. And in every possible way it was encouraged. We are now reaping the "fruits" of this phenomenon. It is quite possible to present the bill to the Austrians. Yes

        Ukraine is the Austrian project for the collapse of the Russian world. Ukraine is an artificially created state with an artificial language in which is full of polonisms.

          Ukraine is a place where from ancient times Russians, Cossacks, Tatars and other peoples lived, and Galicians, being a minority, are trying to shove their language and culture into the national flag of Bandera, as now Islamists in Iraq are trying to cram all their views and cut Shiites, they also lived there since ancient times, what is genocide ?! can not coexist peacefully?

          I think genocide is usually a lazy people who are easier to take away someone else’s than to build it themselves.

      What surprises you? Everything was destroyed in the post-revolutionary period as a legacy of the tsarist regime.

      "Knowledge of history is priceless. A person who ignores history, does not bother studying the past, will never take a step forward, into the future, his lot is to mark time, because history is, first of all, the sum of accumulated knowledge, experience, an invaluable storehouse of information about the world , based on which you can determine that the fire is hot, without trying to stick your own hand into it ...

    A nation that does not know its history has no future. The memory of those who died on the fronts of the First World War and in captivity of our soldiers must always be present in the minds of our people.

      The first is a harbinger of the Second. It is better to know the history from the premises of the War of 1812.

        The first - precursor Second. It is better to know the history from the premises of the War of 1812.

        More likely a consequence.
        If you mean PMV-like the Second Patriotic then yes.

    If I remember correctly, more than 20000 Russian prisoners of war of the Russian-Polish war of 1920 were destroyed by the atrocious wearing of the Poles. When will a respectful attitude be shown to their memory, their torment? Who would answer this question?

      The command and political administration of the Northern Group of Forces, stationed in Poland for 45 years, during all this time did not bother to do at least something in order to put these military graves in order ... Probably all the steam from the political workers went off to loud whistles. words on the theme "no one is forgotten and nothing is forgotten" at solemn meetings and party conferences and subsequent banquets ...
      If then the bureaucrats in uniform, having all the possibilities, but not having the desire and conscience, did not give a damn about the memory of the dead, now, unfortunately, anyone is unlikely to have the strength and resources to solve this problem ...

      Kaliningrad-Koenigsberg, the former capital of Prussia, was taken by the Russian troops even under Elizaveta Petrovna, daughter of Peter the Great. Comrade Stalin restored historical justice, I believe that Mr. Putin will not shame the memory of his ancestors.

    Only welcome. Always ignored the memory of the soldiers of that war. Maybe because of his grandfather, he was also a prisoner then. Failed a silver spoon and without it did not sit down to eat. By the end of his life, he ate almost half a spoon. Well, thank God, he has come (otherwise I would not have written here). Not come eternal memory.

    I am glad that the Austrians do not forget about the dead Russian soldiers. It is sad that we forgot about these soldiers. The political system is changing, the name of the country is changing, but the glory of Russian weapons has always been, is and will be!
