“This Exhibition has Overwhelmed Me…!”

31.10.2014

The exhibition of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov “Pray for Your Children, Quiet Don!” dedicated to the beginning of the First World War completed its running in the State A.S.Pushkin Museum in Moscow.

For Russia, this war began on August, 1, 1914. Since this date, unfortunately, not only the tombs of the fighters have been weed overgrown, but also the very memory of them has been nearly lost. The exhibition was purposed for reminding about the tragedy and the undeservedly forgotten heroes. The issues achieved can be judged upon by the records of the visitors in the guestbook. There are some of them:

“5.08.2014. I am greatly thankful to the museum workers for the well organized exhibition. Well done! Signature.”

“09.08.14. The exhibition is very interesting and informative. It is much more interesting than that displayed in Manezh. Thank you. A retired major, Protasov Alexander Fyodorovich.”

“19.08.2014. Thank you for the memory of our ancestors! To the organizers, authors of the idea and to the Museum leaders! We wish you more wonderful ideas especially on the days when we must remember the hard years of the war… Popova I.I.”

“13.09.14. What a small but capacious exhibition dedicated to the Quiet Don Cossacks! How many photos, quotations… Thank you enormously!”

 

“All is fine! Everything inspires! Thank you! Khusainov A.A.”

 

“September, 16, 2014. It is a good exhibition. Very fit, modern, penetrating. Respectfully. Lebedeva Elena Maratovna.”

 

“Good day! I have visited the third exhibition devoted to the First World War (Manezh, Zubovsky Bulvar) and only here I have felt the tragedy that befell Russia. I am so sick at heart that it took my breath. Naïve, good people – “For the Tsar, for the Motherland”; 100 years have passed, but nothing has changed in the nature of our people. I say this without a shadow of regret. Such is our destiny… Thank you for the exhibition, it affected me.”

October, 19, 14. A very good, informative exhibition about the war of 1914, about Cossacks and about Sholokhov.Thank you. Signature.”

 

19.10.14. I am very sorry for the Russian people. This exhibition overwhelmed me. Thank you! L.Chernyshevskaya.”
