BREST, 3 December (BelTA) – The exhibition Our Common Victory timed to the 75th anniversary of the Soviet people’s Victory in the Great Patriotic War has opened in the Museum of the Defense of the Brest Fortress, BelTA learned from Yelena Mityukova, the head of the science and exhibition department of the Brest Fortress Memorial Complex.

The temporary exhibition was arranged on the initiative of the CIS Council of Permanent Plenipotentiary Representatives at the CIS charter and other bodies with the support of the Belarusian Culture Ministry and the State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War. It mirrors the exposition of the State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War telling about the war history from the first battles of 1941 to the Victory in May 1945.

Sixteen mobile stands of the exhibition tell about the contribution of the eleven Soviet republics to the Great Victory. The exhibition demonstrates portraits of the Great Patriotic War heroes, copies of documents, and materials about the key events of the war, the partisan movement, and the life of Soviet homefront workers during the war. The majority of the sections are dedicated to the most important historic battles of the war: the battles of Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk, the Dnieper, the Jassy-Kishinev Operation, the Berlin Strategic Offensive Operation, and other operations. Every section features materials about natives of the CIS countries who took part in those events. A part of the exhibition tells about the defense of the Brest Fortress, the battles in the Belarusian territory in the summer of 1941, Belarus’ partisan movement and its liberation.

A separate stand covers the topic of the wartime press. It shows leaflets printed during the war in Azerbaijani, Armenian, Turkmen, Moldovan, Ukrainian, Kazakh, Belarusian, Russian, and other languages spoken in the CIS.
