On June 22, 1941, at 4 oТclock in the morning, without a declaration of war, Nazi Germany invaded the territory of the USSR. It was midday in Sakhalin (12:00 noon), drizzling rain. In the evening people came to the meeting in the Port of Aleksandrovsk. People were filled with indignation; a great number of voluntary applications for service in the Red Army were submitted to local military commissariats. The first lots of volunteers shipped from Alexandrovsk to the front line. Not all of the volunteersТ applications to go to the front line were satisfied. By this time the Kuril Islands and the Southern Sakhalin belonged to Japan according to the St. Petersburg Treaty of 1875 and the Portsmouth Treaty of 1905. Sakhalin Island, being well behind the front line, could at any moment become the front line itself, as Japan was an ally of Nazi Germany.

The tour includes a story about Sakhaliners who fought against the Germans on the Western Front, and those who remained behind the front line on in the island and brought victory closer by their hard work. The tour is based on the original items of that time.


The tour is free of charge, everyone is invited.

For information, please, call: 72–75–55.
