“Memory is alive” is the name of a two-day forum that took place in Krasnoyarsk on the basis of the Siberian Federal University. About 5,000 people took part in its work. Among them are the winners of the All-Russian Youth Army contests dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory.

Leaders of youth movements and public organizations, as well as teenagers themselves, leaders of youth army units came to the forum from all over Russia. They talked about their favorite actions, which have been organized by UNARMIA in the regions over five years. It turned out that the most popular project is “Victory Graffiti”. At the forum, he was not spared: by joint efforts, the participants drew a new art object, in which the main character was the front-line paratrooper Georgy Ivkin, whose name was included in the Russian Book of Records as the oldest veteran of the troops. And on the Day of Russia, the Yunarmeys held a large-scale flash mob – they unfurled the national flag of the country. In addition to educational master classes, discussion platforms and strategic sessions, pleasant surprises awaited the participants, such as a tour of the evening city and a trip to the Krasnoyarskie Stolby nature reserve.

The Forum in Krasnoyarsk is the second stage of the “Memory is Alive” project aimed at preserving history and spiritual and moral education of young people. First, YUNARMIA held three All-Russian competitions dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory: “Heroes’ Feat in the Hearts of Generations”, “The History of My Family in the History of the Great Patriotic War” and “Patriotism in My Heart”. In the first case, the jury evaluated creative solo and collective performances. The second competition involved writing scripts with stories about frontline relatives, and the third – projects and videos about love for the Motherland and patriotism.

However, the main award for all the winners of the “Memory is Alive” contest was a documentary film based on family stories told by children – about the Great Patriotic War, about the feat of their great-grandfathers and about the personal attitude of the youth army to the events of those years. The teaser of the tape was shown in Krasnoyarsk, and the full version will be presented at the second forum in Sevastopol, which will take place at the end of July. The third meeting of the participants of the “Memory is Alive” project, which will take place in Moscow, is also planned.
