The soundtrack to an audiovisual show celebrating 70th anniversary of the liberation of the town Žiar nad Hronom (31. 3. 1945) by the Red Army in june 2015 performed live by Eva Aibaz (live sand painting) and Martin Huba (live sound production) on the Matica Slovenská Square in the town.
War comes to a little peaceful town living its quiet life. It seems like nothing can disturb their peace. Suddenly the sky darkens and the signs of coming war shadow the sun. The runner brings bad news. Troops of a foreign land come to occupy, capture and rape this land.
Women with children are running before the troops and machinery coming to destroy and kill. Planes, tanks and firearms are spreading death all around. The town is burned down, the blood of their inhabitants is spilled. Terror rules the land. The enemy is finally exhausted by the assaults of Allies and defeated. LIFE can slowly return to the town and WE can hope, believe, dream and LIVE again...
The pain, tears and scars, though, remain to be remembered and the memory of the victory to be celebrated.
Celebrated are the lives of citizens and soldiers of many nations, who sacrificed their lives for our freedom !
