This combination of twelve photos shows Soviet Jewish World War Two veterans posing for portraits at their homes in Israel. About 500,000 Soviet Jews served in the Red Army during World War Two, and the majority of those still alive today live in Israel. Every year on Victory Day, which falls this Thursday, they parade in uniform throughout Israel to celebrate Nazi Germany's surrender to the Soviet Union.
