New Museum in Moscow Looking Back At the History of The Jewish Russian

Posted: Nov. 20th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Russian Jewish Museum

World’s largest museum of Jewish history constructed in Moscow, a salute to Russia’s role in ending the second world war and a welcome back to the Jewish Russians who had fled the nation during those times. Putin is quoted as “Any attempts to revise the results of World War II and deny the Holocaust are not merely a cynical lie, but also an act of oblivion of the lessons taught by history,” a nod to the importance of the project.

“Both Russia and Israel cherish the memories of the past war. We should clearly realize that attempts to revise Russia’s contribution into the great victory and deny the Holocaust, which was a page of disgrace in the world history, are not merely a cynical and unscrupulous lie, but also an act of oblivion of the lessons taught by history,” Putin said. “Our moral duty is to uphold the truth, defend honor, dignity and the honest name of the live and the dead. I am confident that the museum will be a vivid embodiment of the ideas of an international dialogue and accord.”
