Today, May 9, the Victory Day holiday is a holiday marking the end of the murderous war that claimed the lives of millions of soldiers and civilians, the day of liberation from fascism. During the Second World War, more than 60 million people died, including more than 26 million from the Soviet side.
Thousands of Yezidis also fought on the side of the Soviet Union. 30,000 Yezidis were mobilized into the USSR army. More than 10,000 were awarded military orders and medals.
It was a matter of course for the Yezidis to defend the country to which they had migrated years before they left their homeland. In the 1926 census, there were 14,523 Yezidis in the USSR, not counting Kurds. Yezidis lived and were registered on the territory of Armenia, Georgia and Russia.
Among the Yezidi fighters were both officers and ordinary soldiers who served in units of the armed forces of the USSR. The Yezidi wars took part in the defense of Moscow, in the liberation of Leningrad, Stalingrad, the Caucasus, Crimea, Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna, in the crossing of the Oder and in the Battle for Berlin. Subsequently, a galaxy of intellectuals grew out of their number, of whom all Yezidis are proud.

The Cultural Center of the Caucasus Yezidis remembers and honors the memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War.

Eternal memory!

Happy holiday to you, our dear veterans!
