Webklng, Coordinator Cooperative Studies The University of Lethbridge 4401 University Drive, Lethbridge, Alberta T1K3M4 MOSCOW (AP) Nearly 30 years after it ended, the Sec- ond World War still is a ma- jor preoccupation of everyday Soviet life The press, movies, tele- vision, pamphlets, posters, speeches, monuments, eternal flames, books and paintings all keep alive memories of the Soviet Union's victory in what is called here "The Great Patriotic War." War and peace are twin themes. Not a day passes without reference to the Com- munist party's "peace pro- the "peace-loving for- eign policy" or the "constant struggle for consolidation of peace At the same time, probably no other country devotes so much attention, print and energy to remembering the war.

Telephone 328-9231 When former president Nix- on visited Moscow in early summer, Soviet citizens who had a chance to see him cried out. "We don't want another Hardly anybody does But in the Soviet Union the open intensity of feeling goes be- anything encountered in Western countries. Foreigners who think it goes without saying often are taken aback by a Russian who proclaims in conversation, "We must avoid war SUFFERED HEAVILY A major reason, of course, is the catastrophe war brought to the country. Any- body more than 40 years old has childhood memories of a war in which Nazi armies swept to the gates of Moscow and Leningrad and occupied vast areas of the country There is hardly a family that was untouched by a war in which 20 million people perished in the Soviet Union. It is difficult to escape the war and the military in the Soviet Union. Soldiers throng the streets and war scenes proliferate in pictures at the Tretyakov Art Gallery Stat- ues of soldiers and murals of war scenes abound in subway stations Many civilians wear cam- paign ribbons on their business suits Small children play with war toys and quickly graduate to military training. Military phrases spring to Soviet lips. Communist party leader Leonid I. Brezhnev routinely speaks of the "battle for the harvest" or a teen-age girl writes in a school essay, "We all know that every work- ing day is a battle without shots and every worker is a soldier of the great revolution.-" SOLDIERS PRAISED President Nikolai V. Pod- go rny interrupts 50th-anni- versary celebrations m the Palace of Congresses to in- troduce "our brave Soviet warriors They fill the aisles The servicemen shout, "Glory! in unison and Podgorny emotionally replies- "Praise for our glorious armed At a time when detente is supposed to be flowering, such ceremonies seem like patriotism and militarism run wild It is. however, a normal part of Soviet life. Visitors are taken to ceme- teries and memorials. For- eign officials speaking in any city that was involved in the war feel obliged to refer to the courage of the city's de- fenders and the remarkable job of reconstruction. The war often is used as an excuse for today's short- comings in everything from housing to lack of consumer goods. War can be used to dismiss other things too. Asked why Alexander Solzhemtsyn's writings cannot be tolerated. a member of the Soviet literary establishment replied "He was against the Soviet system which was too dearly bought with the lives of 20 million in war." GLORIFIES PARTY There also are interlocking reasons of state that dictate continued emphasis on the war. Foremost is that the Soviet view of the war glorifies the Soviet system. A new 12-vol- ume history of the war states clearly the aim of the series is "to unmask the falsifiers of history and to actively help in the struggle of socialist ideology against the ideology of imperialism." The constant drumming on the war theme is designed to promote feelings of unity be- tween the parly and people. Emphasis on the war fos- ters a siege mentality that sees hostile forces ringing the country and ready to attack if vigilance fakers" It also jus- tifies maintaining the world's largest standing army, huge defence expenditures, closed borders and repressive meas- ures taken in She name of na- lional security jVol everybody pays atten- tion to the insistent talk about the war 'The younger people don't want to hear about it all the time. said a university student But he added that for his ciders and many young people 'the war is still a very important event PROMOTE OWN VERSION Historians and publicists slill fight the war in the pages of books, newspapers and journals, tirelessly propagat- ing the Soviet version Simply stated, the war arose from a crisis of capital- ism and was ultimately aimed at crushing socialism. When the Soviet Union was attacked it received a little help from its Western allies but bore the brunt of the fighting, saving England and the United States from the Fascists and winning a great victory that could not have been achieved by any other country, people or system. Many Russians are sur- prised when told that Hitler and Stalin secretly agreed to carve up Poland or that the Soviet Union sent supplies to Germany during the Nazi con- quest of France and the Battle of Britain. For them, the Red Army "liberated" the Baltic states in 1939 and it was Finland that attacked the Soviet Union that winter. Chapters of the war that might reflect discredit on the Soviet Union are ignored, as are mistakes that may have been made by Stalin or Soviet generals CAREERS JOIN OUR TEAM!
