The book of memoirs compiled by participants and eyewitnesses of the Great Patriotic War was published by Mogilev State University of Food Technologies. The information was provided by the head of humanities Yury Bubnov.

The material was collected by students and teachers. The book consists of more than 40 stories narrated by participants and eyewitnesses of 1941-1945.

"We tried not to make any editorial changes of the stories", Yury Bubnov stressed. "They are presented in the way written by the old people or their relatives. Some of the stories were collected by our students during taking the course "The Great Patriotic War of the Soviet People". The material having been gathered inspired us to publish the book. Lectures or seminars can't hold a candle to listening or reading the real stories of the war participants told with tears in the eyes. Such involvement makes deep impression on young generation and becomes an effective means of transferring people's memory of the wartime".

The University will go on collecting stories of the kind, Yury Bubnov assured. The book published to mark the 70th anniversary of liberating Belarus from fascist invaders will be sent to all regional libraries to give anyone a chance to read it. The electronic version of the book is provided at the University's site.
