Nearby famous French Quarter, under the old trees well shadowing a heart part of historically world-known New Orleans, LA, the D-Day Museum is located.
Its comprehensive exhibition really impresses with volumes of both data mostly on the USA WWII actions in Pacific region and video/audio techniques the exhibits present.
No wonder, even in the recent increasingly-multi-cultural UK, according to polls, the youngest Brits barely know about Great Britain’s struggle in coalition with the USA, France -in new Europe of the EU politically-correctly decreasing her participation in common victory over former foe- and the USSR against Nazi enemy declaring then broadly and openly fascist contiguous plans of assessing the world resources and annihilating “non-Arians” that is the Jews, Gypsies and “black unter-Menschen” at the first stage.
Well, there were plenty enough supporters not among the Nazi Germany closest neighbours only when later Yassir Arafat’s then young uncle made his hajj to the Hitler’s Reich Chancellery in the thirties of the last century, assuring in cooperation . However, there were (and are) different Muslims round the globe and millions of them opened hearts and homes to refugees from the Nazi-occupied territories, fought against a common enemy in the Coalition armed forces of which the Soviet (former, Red) Army was a part the most numerous and timely-involved in a direct contact with Nazi enemy prepared astonishingly for an unprovoked offence towards the USSR.
As world celebrated end of the war in Europe on 8 May 1945, more Soviet soldiers died to free Prague, the Czech capital, from remains of Nazi armada resisting there, and Victory was declared in Moscow on 9 May 1945.
A whole world paid blood and lives to clear then globe from Hitler’s nightmare-Australian/New Zealand’s veterans remember their ordeal in Asian PoW camps and Kokoda tragic brave story.
No 9 May 1945 – no anti-Hitler Coalition WWII victory could have been gained in 1945.
This is the Victory Day then Soviet Army, shoulder to shoulder with the Western Allies, poor technically and in general Soviet folks delivered to own land, all world and generations oncoming.
Long life to the WWII anti-Hitler Coalition veterans made human present a reality!
