Berlin seen from Brest

Students and schoolchildren, in their best outfits, bearing bouquets of flowers, come to say: ‘We remember you, fortress defenders!’
Two exhibitions have opened at the exhibition hall near the Kholmsk Gates. One is dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the Memory Post at the Eternal Flame while the second — Roads to Victory — explores the celebrations surrounding this date at the legendary citadel over past years.
“Everything we do in the Brest Region — in cities and villages — honours veterans. We endeavour to improve ourselves so that we aren’t shamed in front of these honoured people. We’ll always be in debt to them,” notes Konstantin Sumar, the Chairman of the Brest Regional Executive Committee.
