AAA Research: Testimonial
“We couldn’t do this important work without them…”
We Russians lost more people in the war than any other country, more than 20 million. In the chaotic first weeks and months of the war, nobody knew what was going on, and soldiers were killed and buried by the millions in unmarked graves, usually by just laying them in defensive trenches and covering them up. We members of the Dolina war graves society want to do what we can to recover the remains of those brave men who died like cattle herded to the slaughter, and we need old aerial photographs to identify places we can excavate. Thanks to www.naraexpert.com, we have been able to almost immediately recover dozens of remains in fields where we thought there would be none, or where we had looked on and off for years with only limited success, or no success at all. These photos are a silent tribute to the madness of war, but also to the spirit of those who gave their lives for our mother country.
