Victory Day on May 9th 2006
On the 9th of May, 2006, we celebrate the 61st anniversary of World War II. The fighting of WWII in Europe ended on May 2nd, 1945. The surrender of German troops was signed on May 4th and 5th but officially the war ended at midnight on May 8th 1945. To remember this important event, it was created a national holiday called the Victory Day which is celebrated on May 9th in Russia and other countries. We paid for this Victory an enormous cost - 27 million human lives. This is a poem for you to help you to understand why we became winners, the poem in which Russian soldier is asking his beloved to wait for him in spite of all the hardships:
The Poem "Wait For Me" by Konstantin Simonov
