SOLDIERS OF THE WORLD WAR II




SOLDIERS OF THE WORLD WAR II

(from “Pobediteli: Soldiers of the Great War”)

This is a Russian language site created to honor living veterans of WWII. The list of  1,000,000+ names was created in 2005. There is an English language button at the top/right corner of the home page.  Or, you can go to:  http://english.pobediteli.ru/

On the home page there is an excellent interactive map chronicling the  history & important battles of the war from the Russian viewpoint.

List of soldiers, Jews & non-Jews, including birth dates, are available from the following locations. There is also a search box available. (I don't know if you can do a search in English or if you need to convert names to Cyrillic).

RUSSIA (Districts):
Central, Volga, Northwestern, South, Siberia, Urals, Far-Eastern

OVERSEAS:
Belarus, Latvia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Estonia, Moldavia, Georgia, USA, Israel, Czech Republic, Germany, Trans-Dniester Region

JEWISH CEMETERIES

JEWISH CEMETERIES


This Russian language resource is worth my mentioning again. There are 40+ cemeteries listed for viewing. Use an online translator as needed.
Example: (go to the site for additional cemetery names & locations)



1.   Clicking on the desired cemetery link brings you to photos of monuments with the names of those buried. Many monuments are in the Russian style imprinted with images of the individuals.

2.   If you click on an individual’s name, sometimes there is additional information regarding others who are buried nearby or about those who are buried together.

Example: Moscow, Vostryakovsky Cemetery

3. There is also a search box available. ( I assume that you would need to convert the name to Cyrillic letters before entering it.)
