Immortal Regiment In the Big Apple


Who needs these wars?


New York, New York – Lima Charlie News
The ‪Immortal Regiment‬ is an international public rally held annually in May to commemorate veterans of ‪World War II. ‬The marches began in the Siberian city of Tomsk, Russia in 2012, where people were debating how to keep the memory of World War II heroes alive, even as the veterans themselves passed on. They asked people to create large posters with photos of their relatives who had served in the war, and carry them in Victory Day parades. The march follows Russia’s annual Victory Day parade, marking the anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany. Today marches fill the streets of every Russian city and have since spread to over a dozen other countries, including nine U.S. cities this year. Immortal Regiment marches first found their way to New York City in 2015 amidst a growing Russian population.
