The 9th of May, marking this year 68 years since the historic victory over the Nazis by the joint forces that ended the Second World War, was widely celebrated last week in hundreds of Jewish communities in the FSU, whose members include many war veterans.

Prayers such as ‘Yizkor’, laying flowers upon memorial sites, special ceremonies, lectures and meetings with veterans and holocaust survivors – were all part of the activities marking the special day that were attended by both young and old members of the reviving communities.
