The paper contains the memories of the Great Patriotic War recorded during the interview which reflect both tragic and comic moments, as well as resourcefulness, childlike spontaneity, and the sincerity of experiences. These texts are recorded both from the participants of the war and from their descendants within the framework of family traditions. The witnesses of the war are people of different ages and social status, who lived in rural and urban areas (mainly residents of villages), some shared the most vivid childhood memories, others have worked in the rear, or fought at the front. Submitted texts provide an opportunity to see the perception of the war by modern youth living in peacetime, broadcasting the memories of their relatives, sometimes with their own assessment of that time or those events.
