On June 22, 2021, the Military Uniform Museum opened the exhibition "Broken Silence", dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.
The exhibition will tell about the equipment and insignia of the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army on this tragic day.
June 22, 1941-Sunday. The time is at dawn, the news comes – the war has begun. At noon, Vyacheslav Molotov made a radio address to the Soviet people. The lives of millions of people were immediately divided into two unconnected parts: the one that was a minute ago, before the war, and the one that is now. The growing anxiety and fear dragged on for four years.
80 years have passed since the silence was broken. The wounds in every family have been healed, but the scars will remain with us, with the memory of our loved ones and relatives who gave their lives for the silence that was interrupted at four o'clock in the morning. The exhibition will introduce visitors to the insignia, elements of uniforms and equipment, badges and photographs of soldiers and commanders of the Red Army who met the enemy on June 22, 1941. The exhibition consists of unique items from the collection of S. Korolev.
The exhibition will run until August 8, 2021.
