New database documents 1 million WWII citizen heroes who defended Moscow — Find Lost Russian & Ukrainian Family

Russian archives have been busy posting WWII records online this year, in time for Russia’s celebration of the 76th anniversary of Victory Day on May 9.

The latest database is honoring citizens who helped with the defense of Moscow during the war. A third of recipients were women and children. People who came from Yarolsav Region (north of Moscow Region) to construct defensive structures also received the medal.
