"In the beginning of World War II, tens of thousands of Jews fleeing the Holocaust, as well as, hundreds of thousands of refugees and evacuees fleeing the destruction and extermination in Europe found their new home in Uzbekistan. The people of Uzbekistan opened their doors and sheltered the refugees, sharing with them their modest piece of bread. This will never be forgotten", - it says in the press release of the organizers.
