How did it all begin?
“The Arctic Allied Convoys” organized an action “Immortal Arctic Convoy” in Saint Petersburg on 9th May 2018. Cadets of naval colleges brought 200 portraits of the Arctic allied convoys’ participants. All the portraits were provided by descendants of the Great heroes from USSR, the USA, Great Britain, Canada, France and other countries of the anti-Hitler coalition. This action made a big impression on the public.
Youth subdivision of Saint Petersburg’s regional social organization “The Arctic Allied Convoys” plans to celebrate the Victory day larger and to invite the guests from all over the world. The descendants of the participants of the Arctic convoys and those, who are interested in the history of the WWII will unite in the idea of saving historical memory and remember their grandfathers and their grandfathers’ exploits together!
