This year we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Great Victory under special unfortunate circumstances! But that shouldn't overshadow our celebration. In spite of the fact that the traditional visit to the Mamayev Kurgan and other memorable historical places cannot take place this year, no one will cancel our memory and the opportunity to congratulate our relatives and friends, because we have modern technologies at our disposal. To honour the memory of the participants of the Great Patriotic War, this time we will be in the family circle. The events planned for May 9 in the city we will be able to see on TV. And visiting graves and monuments, laying flowers and wreaths will be possible only after the removal of restrictive measures. The year 2020 has been declared the Year of Memory and Glory in our country, so we will pay tribute to our ancestors when it becomes possible.

Our University was preparing to celebrate the Great Victory Day. This remarkable date is dedicated to a number of events prepared by different VolgSMU departments, many of them will continue after May 9. We are paying our homage to the memory as much as we can in the current circumstances. We are involved in social networks in promotions and flash mobs, which are now a lot. Some of the events are organized by our student activists, some by the Department of History and Cultural Studies, by the VolgSMU Museum of History and the university library. Students recall their family historical wartime chronicles, write essays about their grandparents, grandmothers and great grandmothers who fought and brought victory to the rear. These digitized memories are posted on our website, as well as in the university groups in social networks, and on the personal pages of the participants of the events, and some of them will be published in the university newspaper "Za meditsinskiye kadry".
