Exhibition “The Fate of a Man is the Fate of People”

14.06.2016

On June 22, the Excursion and Exhibition Centre “People’s House” will open the exhibition “The Fate of a Man is the Fate of People” from the collections of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the first publication of the story “The Fate of a Man” and the Year of Russian Cinema.

The story “The Fate of a Man” by M.A.Sholokhov has gained a worldwide fame and glory, and aroused an enormous number of responses in press and letters to the author – confessions of former prisoners of the fascist concentration camps,– and thanks for the theme of war prisoners raised for the first time. A big number of such letters will be shown at the exhibition.

The visitors will see a short film “Pages of the Story” (Mosfilm, 1957) made by the film directors B.Kryzhanovsky and M.Tereshchenko soon after the story was published. The roles of the narrator and Andrey Sokolov are played by S.Bondarchuk. The reading is illustrated with the fragments of the war newsreels and feature episodes.

The popularity of the story was greatly contributed by the talented film “The Fate of a Man” by the film director Sergei Bondarchuk. The film was made in the film studio “Mosfilm” in 1959. It can also be seen at the exhibition.

The exhibition will display the illustrations to the story made by the famous graphic artists O.Vereisky, Y.Rebrov, Kukryniksy and others; some works will be shown for the first time.

The exhibition will also show the photographs, documents, publications of the story “The Fate of a Man” in foreign languages, and the objects of the time of the Great Patriotic War.

You are welcome to the exhibition, which will run from June 22, to November 13, 2016.
