A memorial candle-lighting ceremony will take place against the background and exposition titled “Victory Has Salty Taste”.
The exposition, which opening on Sunday, features thematic posters that tell about the ideology of Nazism and plans to “solve the Jewish question once and for all”; a unique story of a Soviet Jewish soldier, his desire to fight Nazism and win and also about the need to restore justice and perpetuate the Holocaust victims, the press service of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia said.
