May 9 is a Victory Day

The last rehearsal before a big performance. Vocalists are preparing for a grand concert dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory. There will be winners in the hall, and we will see their children and grandchildren on the stage. In different cities of the country they meet on May 9th. They remember those who fought to the last bullet, defending their homeland and paying tribute to those who returned. The Great Patriotic War is the worst in the history of mankind.

War always starts all of a sudden, although for historians it seems inevitable after decades. The treacherous attack of the Nazi invaders, the defense of the Brest Fortress, the battle of Stalingrad, the battle of Kursk - almost every Kazakh family has their own story. The Great Patriotic War did not pass without a trace for Kazakhstan. 1.2 million people went to the front, and half of them did not return.
