Topical exhibition


The exhibition "Memory of Generations: The 80th Anniversary of the Relief of the Nazi Siege of Leningrad", which runs from May 27th to August 17th, 2024, is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the complete liberation of Leningrad from the Nazi Siege. This event played a decisive role in the longest battle of the Great Patriotic War - the Battle of Leningrad, which lasted from July 10th, 1941, to August 9th, 1944. The main goal of the exhibition is to showcase, based on reliable historical materials, how people immediately after the relief of the blockade perpetuated the memory of the city's feat and its heroic defenders, and how our contemporaries perceive the events surrounding the liberation of besieged Leningrad. The exhibition tells the story of the first major exhibitions that were held back in 1944, such as the "Heroic Defence of Leningrad," which was dedicated to the defense and siege of Leningrad. The "Svirskaya Pobeda" museum which was opened in the Leningrad Oblast in the city of Lodeynoye Pole was dedicated to the feat of the defenders of Svir’ City. Modernity is represented through the research and collections of the Russian Military Historical Society and the Presidential Library. The Society regularly holds memorial events and engages in scholarly work, organizing conferences, launching historical publications, and erecting monuments to the heroes of World War II. The materials of the exhibition are dedicated to the monument to the victims of the Nazi genocide, which was erected on the initiative of the Russian Military Historical Society near Gatchina and was opened on January 27, 2024. The preservation of the memory of the heroism of the Siege survivors and defenders of Leningrad is a priority for the Presidential Library. Read more...
