“Echo of the War”

26.05.2015

This year, one of the bright pages of the children literary and folklore festival “Sholokhov Spring” was an educational interactive program “The Great Patriotic War” prepared by the Aksai War and History Museum. It was dedicated to the 110th anniversary of M.A.Sholokhov and the 70th anniversary of the Victory of our people in the Great Patriotic War.

In the Excursion and Exhibition Centre “People’s House”, at the exhibition “The Roads of the War” there was held an interactive class “The Great Patriotic War” and “A Front Letter” for the schoolchildren of Vyoshenskaya.

At the class of “A Front Letter” the children learned about the history of letters sent from the fronts and that for the front correspondence there were issued envelopes, postcards and lettersheets. A lettersheet was a lined sheet of paper which could be folded in half and sealed with a special flap. However, the most popular were letters-triangles. They were written on what came to hand: cigarette paper, a sheet from and exercise-book, a piece of a poster or an office form. The sheet of paper was folded in a triangle with the address written on it. A stamp was not used for such kind of postal correspondence. It was impossible to determine the destination of the soldier: the return address indicated only the military unit and the number of the field post.

At the practical part of the lesson the children wrote letters-triangles on the topic: “Thanks to the Grandfather for the Victory!” and put them into a big envelope with an inscription: “To the younger generation in defence of peace.”

At the lesson “The Great Patriotic War” the children learned a lot of new things about armaments, outfit, personal belongings, saw a presentation “The Main Stages of the War” and were not only viewers, but also participants in the action of the great past events.

The program of the guest museum was informative and interesting.
