The years of 1939-1945 became the most tragic in the history of mankind. The Second World War took the lives of over 70 million people, with the death toll of civilians exceeding those of combatants.
There are very few still living witnesses of those days. We can hardly imagine what they had to confront and endure in wartime. Their experiences and wisdom are of great value to us, especially during these challenging times.
We are delighted to be able to share this VE Day personal greeting by one of the British-Canadian veterans Capt. Rolfe Monteith which was recorded with the assistance of CamRuSS.
To mark this special anniversary, our team has created a collection of short biographies of our local heroes – veterans of the Second World War, who are living in the UK. We would like to take this opportunity to greet them on this special day and thank them for their contribution and support of this project. http://www.camruss.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/PQ_2020_1.pdf
We would like to take this initiative further and invite you to share biographies of your family members and friends who participated in the war, so that we can create a collective commemoration brochure for Remembrance Day. Please send a short bio (max 400 words) with photographs to: firstname.lastname@example.org
