The photographic album features about 400 unique shots from BelTA archives, including those by war correspondents Vladimir Lupeiko, Vasily Arkashev, and Mikhail Savin. Dmitry Zhuk, the Director General of BelTA News Agency, whose idea the album was, tells us that the National Library and the Belarusian State Archive of Film, Photography and Sound Recording have been extremely helpful in fulfilling the project. He notes that the Victory plays a special role for everyone living in Belarus, and is greatly inspiring.
One Victory for All highlights not only the war years but those from before the conflict began, and afterwards, during the restoration of Belarus. Unique materials include photo-stories of those who played their part: linked by the patriotic themes of Motherland, freedom, independence and peace.
