Kalinka Russian School took part in the Immortal Regiment March
The Immortal Regiment March was held in Luxembourg for the first time this year. On May 7, the event gathered about a hundred people, including students of the Kalinka Russian School, who came with their parents and teachers to the memorial of the cemetery in Bonnevoie. They carried portraits of their great-grandfathers in memory of their exploit, that made possible the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.
Korzhenevskii Kirill (Snegiri V), who had got, on May 6, the third place in the seniors' category of the World Through the Eyes of Children Poetry Recitation Contest, dedicated to the Victory Day celebration, recited Do the Russians Want War, a poem by Yevgeni Yevtushenko. He performed after students from the School of the Russian Embassy in Luxembourg. The Kalinka Russian School laid a wreath on the memorial.
The participation of the Kalinka Russian School in the Immortal Regiment March is a sign of the continuity of generations, a sign that our common history and our common tragedy will not be forgotten, that the memory of those who fell will be kept alive.
