April 26 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

During the First World War, Russia’s government and public organization sent sick and wounded soldiers to various health resorts across the empire. The ideal aim of this project was to heal the combatants with the help of the bountiful nature of the homeland. In this enterprise, the treatment of tuberculous soldiers in the sanatorium occupied a special place.
