By car.

On the eve of Victory Day, various patriotic actions have started in our country, which you can also join. Let’s talk about some of them.

Windows of Victory.

As part of the action, which has been held for several years, it is proposed to decorate the windows of apartments and houses with photographs of front-line soldiers, thematic stencils, flags, and congratulations.

Wall of Memory.

Any enterprise, organization and educational institution can join the All-Russian action. To do this, it is necessary to create a “Wall of Memory” at the facilities, on which employees will place portraits of their front-line soldiers.

Concerts for veterans.

Concerts and parades under the windows of veterans have been held in our country for several years. 2023 is no exception. Thus, the members of the Yunarmiya launched the traditional campaign «Parade at the Veteran’s House». Its participants will sing war songs, read poems, and march at the windows of the hero. The first such parades took place on 3 May. In total, Yunarmiya plans to hold over 2,000 such events, in which more than 50,000 children will take part.

The “Sing in the Yard” campaign has also become traditional, as part of which concerts for veterans are also held. Residents of the Tavrida art cluster also joined the project. In different parts of Russia, they will perform military songs in the yards where veterans live.

In some cities, representatives of authorities and creative teams take an active part in such events.

Red clove.

As part of the campaign, volunteers are distributing Red Carnation badges on city streets for donations. It is easy to recognize the guys — they are dressed in branded clothes with the symbol of the action and the logo of the volunteer organization. In gratitude for your charity, you will receive a Red Carnation badge — a symbol of unity and assistance to veterans. The promotion will last until June 22. All funds raised will be used to help veterans.

Where to look for information about your hero.

To help those who want to find information about their relative who fought, died or disappeared during the war years, special resources have been created. The most basic of them:

Generalized data bank (GDB) «Memorial». Data and scans of documents that are stored in Russian archives, including the Central Archive of the Russian Ministry of Defense, are posted here. The information concerns those who died during the war years, the missing prisoners of concentration camps, prisoners of war.

Electronic archive «Feat of the people». On the site you can find out if your relative was awarded awards and for what feat. There are award files, documents on the operational management of hostilities, decrees and orders for awards, etc.

Website «Memory of the People». This resource combines the functionality of the previous two. Here you can find information about a participant in the Great Patriotic War, learn about his awards, military path, place of death and burial.

It is worth considering that at the moment only part of the information available in the archives is posted on these resources. If you did not find the information you need on them, then you can ask for help from search engines in your region or where your hero fought or allegedly disappeared.
