The demand for such a public structure is becoming even more obvious, given the unprecedented anti-Russian propaganda campaign unleashed in recent years, it has become much more difficult to organize and conduct events around the world related to the remembrance of even such unequivocal in their ideological content zhaniyu events like the defeat of fascism by the Soviet Union and the countries of the anti-Hitler coalition. The most important task of the International Organizing Committee of the "Immortal Memory" project is the creation of a common electronic bank of documents on Nazi crimes, as well as the creation of a single file cabinet of Nazis and their accomplices who committed crimes against peace and humanity. This worthy scientific and organizational task falls to the lot of our generation. Its implementation will contribute to the restoration of historical justice and will become a reliable barrier to those who are trying to rewrite history, rehabilitate Nazism and denigrate the great victory of the Soviet people and all countries and peoples - the victors of Nazism.

"The issue of documents revealing the crimes of Nazism is one of the key issues for the project. We spend a lot of time in archives, working with published materials - photo, video, sound, typescript. Document is always at the center of our publications. These testimonies are so powerful that sometimes even our hardened colleagues experience emotional difficulties in working on a topic. Therefore, we pay great attention to this important work on the search and digitization of documents related to crimes against the civilian population of the USSR - this layer of historical memory has yet to be studied," said the project manager, journalist and writer Natalia Osipova.

The participants of the round table agreed to publish selected materials of the "Immortal Memory" project about Nazi crimes against Soviet citizens on the nuremberg.media portal.
