“If we lose the war, it will mean that the Jews defeated us.” I think many guessed who could say those words.

Yes, Hitler lost the war. But not only to those 6 million Jews whom he sentenced to “the final solution of the Jewish question”, wrote on Facebook Boris Lozhkin.

Hitler also lost it to Abram Levin from Kyiv, who in February 1942 covered the sights of the machine gun at the German bunker with his own body.

And to Tovye Raiz from Kremenets, Ternopil region, who also covered the embrasure of an enemy weapon at the German bunker with his body in October 1944. Tovye Raiz survived despite 18 gunshot wounds.

Hitler also lost to Anatoly Shapiro from Poltava, who opened the gates of Auschwitz on January 27, 1945.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to list all those who fought, survived and died on all the fronts of the war against Nazism. It is important that we do not forget about their heroism.

We are grateful to them and we cherish the memory of them.
