For People to Remember

06.11.2014

On November, 14, the Excursion-Exhibition Centre “People’s House” opened the exhibition “…Pray for Your Children, Quiet Don!”, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War.

The First World War has been largely forgotten, and for the new generations of Russians it has turned to be unknown. This war was overshadowed by the Revolution, Civil War and then by the Second World War. For the Soviet Russia it was an alien war, avoided to be remembered, though it was her people who fought there, who made feats of arms and died as heroes.

Many Don Cossacks did not return to their villages and stanitsas being left unburied on battlefields in foreign distant lands. Their relatives and friends remember them and keep their photos to hand to their descendants as dear relics.

There were displayed over 200 exhibits from the collection of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov: photos, letters, medals and breastplates of the First World War, postcards and popular prints about Don Cossacks and their feats of arms, munitions, weapons, ammunition, paintings and graphics by the famous artists.

You are welcome to the exhibition running until March, 1.
