In Abai Park each 9th May, Victory Day is a big event with veterans of WWII being particularly honoured.
It was ordinary people who heroically fought to bring freedom and independence to this land in the Second World War, known here as the Great Patriotic War. Even the younger generation are keen to thank the remaining veterans with words of gratitude and flowers.
Flowers in memory of the fallen, with the slogan, ‘No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten.’
On the 9th May the Salem volunteers gave time to remember those who gave their lives so that we could have the opportunity to live under peaceful skies.
The eternal flame; the eternal memory of the heroes; the grateful young generation of Kazakhstan.
