Frightful memories of the Second World War' veterans

Twenty-year old soldiers who fought in the World War II are now past eighty. Few are still alive. And yet, some are still active despite their age, as opposed to a lot of their peers. Galina Polidorova still looks surprisingly fit for her age, though she's more than 80 years old. Other war veterans joined Galina in her swimming exercises, as they spark new energy. After the pool, the war time friends flock to a nearby cafe, where they often hold celebrations. This time it's Galina's birthday and they remember the spring of 1945 as it is the one they will never forget.
