M.A.Sholokhov Memorial Meeting

08.02.2019

On February 21, 2019, a meeting “In the Time of Turmoil…” dedicated to the memory of M.A.Sholokhov will be held in Vyoshenskaya, in the Palace of Culture. It will begin at 15.00.

A literary musical composition will tell about the events of a century ago – the Upper Don Cossack rebellion of 1919 – one of the most tragic pages in the history of the Don Cossacks. M.A.Sholokhov was the first to tell the wide public about it in his novel “And Quiet Flows the Don”. He showed brightly and significantly its origins and causes, and conveyed the truth of the deepest tragedy of the people to the readers.

At the meeting, the viewers will learn about the events preceding the rebellion, about the course of the fighting, will see photographs and footage chronicles of that time and will hear the immortal Sholokhov’s word.

Mikhail Alexandrovich Sholokhov died on February 21, 1984. On February days, the events dedicated to the memory of M.A.Sholokhov, the great Russian writer, the Nobel Prize winner in literature, will take place in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, Rostov-on-Don and in other regions of Russia.
