Pyotr Krivonogov. Victory! 1948

Pyotr Krivonogov. Victory! 1948


Pyotr Krivonogov



Today is VICTORY DAY! Glory to all our veterans of World War II, of all nationalities, who rid the world of the Nazi menace. If they hadn’t done this, the world would be a sadder place.

NEVER FORGET their sacrifice!

NEVER FORGET the innocent victims!

NEVER FORGET the cost that they paid!

If we forget, we’ll be doomed to repeat it, under a new face, assuredly, but it’d be the same old horror. That’s why you should never listen to those who tell you to “move on”. Be it in one’s private life, or in the larger life of society, this advice is always destructive and malicious. We must always be mindful of the past, so that we can draw the proper lessons from it. A person or society lacking a past is a soulless golem, never forget that. To all our veterans, wherever they may be, whatever nationality they may be, or whatever was the form of their service:


We can’t say that often enough or loudly enough. We honour you.
