Based on the memories of the Great Patriotic War`s contemporaries an article shows the possibilities of using the oral history method to discover new data on the largest historical event of the 20th century. It describes digital technologies of recording, processing, saving the received data, such as respondent stories recorded on digital media, transcribed and digitized texts of memories. Attention is paid to the gender aspects of the analysis of received materials, which allows us to state the essential gender characteristics of military interviews. The method of historical interview helps to shed light on the specifics of war`s gender aspects, to find out assessments of certain events and phenomena related to the history of relations between women and men in wartime and to establish little-known facts. New data are introduced into scientific circulation, which allows restoring various aspects of attitudes, opinions, and assessments regarding the phenomenon of women's participation in a war, expanding the social, psychological and historical characteristics of such a social phenomenon as the Great Patriotic War, approaching its objective and multidimensional understanding. The results of the study confirm the expediency of this method to preserve the historical memory of the Great Patriotic War.
