Women - veterans of II World War in Belarus.

This project was inspired by Svetlana Alekseyevich’s book War’s Unwomanly Face (1985). All these women all different nationalities were fighting in World War II for their homeland (the Soviet Union). The war was difficult for them. They were very young when the war had started (16-18) and they had to learn plenty of things necessart during the war. They were nurses, truck drivers, work in communications, they were partisans (mostly those who lived in the countryside).
