You're reading: Vox Populi: What do kids in Kyiv know about May 9?

It’s a Victory Day. Our soldiers won over foreign soldiers. In school they told us there was an Unknown Warrior, and that the Eternal Flame never goes out because we must remember the warriors. I know the war was very long ago, but I don’t remember exactly how many years ago. We’ve been to (the World War II) museum today. I saw helmets, medals and guns. I liked bombs the most. And the scarriest thing was the device (the fascists) used for cutting the heads of captives. And a bone crushing device. They used to decapitate kids too. I know that captured kids used to beg for bread, but they didn’t give them any, and kids died.
