This project is a civic initiative of a number of individuals and businesses. It was not built as a part of the official memorial events. Our objective is to thank those who won the Great Patriotic War. We believe that our project will help attract attention to the surviving veterans and remind our readers that we still can thank many of them.

We believe that gratitude should not be impersonal, but should be delivered personally to each veteran €" this is why the list of names of veterans still here to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Victory is an important part of this project. We want to remind that these people are living among us, in our cities €" they may need our help and may want to be heard.

Today, the Internet allows us to tell the old story in a new way, to put in plain words what this war represented for our grandfathers. By using a multimedia map of the war, we attempted to combine historic facts with archival materials and personal accounts shared with us in recent times, without any bias or judgment. We strived not only to present a coherent picture of the events, but also to initiate a dialogue between generations €" remember, the personal accounts included in this project are but a tiny part of what the veterans can tell us.

Nice presentation with interesting choice of borders and frontlines http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

For example, the Soviet forces did never reach the 13.3.1940 border between Finland and SU by fighting. Border was reached only after 4.9.1944 when Finnish troops retreated to it.

Not to mention, they forgot to explain how come there was SU/German border at all and WTF it was doing in the middle of Poland on 22 June 1941...

I knew you would notice this, so I didn't dare to mention case Poland separately http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Obviously eastern part of Poland was ceded to Belorussia and the map just reflects this. Unfortunately without hint of what was situation before 1939, like in the case of Finnish border.

Presentation itself seem to be quite good.
