In 2021 the Kaliningrad region has celebrated its 75th anniversary. It is a wonderful occasion to recollect the development of the region, the people who helped to revive the war-torn land, and the initiatives that have largely shaped its economic, social and cultural development. Hundreds of thousands of people were born, new branches of economy emerged, processes of social modernisation unfolded, striking works of culture were created, and new “sites of memory” appeared in the Kaliningrad region during these 75 years of its history. The special project, which was prepared within the framework of the project “From the fields of the Great Patriotic War to a new peaceful life: pages of history of the Kaliningrad region” and supported by the Government of the Kaliningrad region, uncovers some important phenomena of the Soviet period of the region’s history.
