The 70 veterans of the Great Patriotic War are to visit former battlegrounds in Berlin
A memory train left Moscow for Berlin, carrying 70 war veterans. The train is to arrive in the German capital April 15. The 70 veterans of the Great Patriotic War, who are accompanied by 140 members of a youth public movement, are to visit former battlegrounds in Berlin. They will also visit Soviet war memorials that were constructed after the war. The Russian Embassy in Berlin will organize an official reception during the day. Soviet war veterans are to meet their former enemies, i.e. German veterans, during that reception. Veterans and their young companions are to visit former SS, Gestapo and SD headquarters, as well as bunkers and air-raid shelters in Berlin's Schoneberg, Gumboldthain and Mitte districts, during their "Wartime Berlin" guided tour. They will also visit the Reichstag, as well as the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe buildings. It is also intended to visit the German Resistance museum, Moabit prison and the act-of-surrender museum in Karlshorst. The memory train is to return to Moscow April 17.
