Basing on the written sources (the tens of family archives) and oral ones (the in-depth interviews and oral histories) the author characterize the view of the teenagers of 8-12 years ages on the events of the GPW, first of all in the rear of the USSR. In those times the front and the rear had been inseparable. All what happened at the front influence on the life of the rear of the GPW. That war had changed the public consciousness of all social groups and nationalities of the USSR just during the GPW and after it. The article contains the following sections: (1) the terrible traces of that war; (2) the contacts with the wounded in the hospital; (3) everyday life of a city in the rear; (4) the war consequences by the teenager’s eyes; (5) the Great Victory and after it. In particular it’s noted that recently a civil defense is lag behind in comparison with a destructive potential of modern war and of its possible after-effects. The residents of large cities are relied upon of the rescue forces while the full name of this mighty ministry is the ‘Ministry of the Emergency Cases and Civil Defense.’ Russian sociology is still escape of the studies of a pace, forms and the after-effects of the modern wars. Our sociology is needed in modern sociology that is nonlinear and probabilistic methodology and theory which fits to the ongoing type of the world’s transformations, and accordingly new methods of the field-research and practical political instruments capable to prevent the very possibility of a new world war.
