The Sudak landing operation took place on January 6-27, 1942. Soldiers from the 226th and 554th mountain rifle regiments took part in it. They were supposed to provide support to the main forces of the Kerch-Feodosia operation. The Soviet paratroopers located behind enemy lines held the defense for 12 days. When the enemy went on the offensive, many soldiers died, and more than 800 people were captured. The surviving soldiers joined the partisans and continued the fight against the Nazis.
The program includes a visit to the memorial exhibition “Glory to the Landing!”, consisting of several thematic blocks: the pre-war era in Sudak, the period of fascist occupation, the history of the Sudak partisan detachment, the chronology of the military operations of the Sudak landing of 1942, the liberation of Sudak on April 14, 1944— said the museum.
