Oftentimes, the purpose of art is commemoration of and reporting on those events that should never be forgotten by subsequent generations. Front-line artists and sculptors, eyewitnesses and participants in hostilities, can, apart from telling the young generation about their military path and those severe days, visually present images of the war as well. In their works, they reflected things that helped to keep head up: true friendship, rare happiness of hearty meetings, the might and solidarity of Soviet people.
