General Information

Vasili Vasilevich, Angarsk, Russia, 2007.

At three o’clock on the dot we enter the War Museum. We are the only visitors. Vasili Vasilevich (87) is already waiting for us. From the large plastic shopping bag he’s brought with him he pulls a shiny cardboard fold-out board. This is Vasilevich’s homemade museum. The board is entirely covered with old photos, newspaper clippings and a large number of photos of tributes after the war. Vasilevich was in the Russian troops who fought on to the Elbe, where - in his own words – they had to be stopped by the Americans. Once Vasilevich has laid out his museum, he can’t be stopped. Little remains of the ragged old man at the start of our meeting. When Vasilevich is finished, he sits down wearily. We carefully fold up the museum wall.
