Museum of Telephone History exhibits to be displayed at the ‘Victory Motors’ festival
The festival, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory, will host dozens of museums and historical ‘reconstruction’ clubs. Many unique items such as rare apparatus, field/tank telephones and radio stations, a captured army bike, secret weapons etc. will be exhibited in the museum hall.
The centerpiece of the exhibition will be rare handsets from the Museum of Telephone History’s unique collection. Some of these handsets provided safe and reliable communications to troops during World War II. Wartime telephone examples allow us to capture the atmosphere of the war years so that visitors may appreciate the difficulties faced in the early 1940s.
"The Museum of Telephone History always takes part in such events with great enthusiasm and is dedicated to important historical events in Russia. We will never forget our heroes who gave up their lives for their country. We will continue to cherish and pass this memory to our younger generations," said Julia Zavadskaja, Director of the Museum of Telephone History.
During the festival, visitors will have the opportunity to be photographed wearing a uniform used during the war years. They will also be able to see various feature films and documentaries with live commentary by each producer. Boys will be allowed to climb on antique armor and may even taste soldier's porridge! From the back of a truck, a ‘propaganda’ team will recount wartime poems and songs to help guests get a feel for the atmosphere of the festival dedicated to this formidable and great era.
