Senior Students Learn about the War Prose of M.A.Sholokhov

20.03.2019

On March 13 and 15, 2019, the senior students of the Vyoshenskaya secondary school were given museum classes “The Great Patriotic War in the Life and Work of M.A.Sholokhov” in the Memorial House at the Estate of M.A.Sholokhov.

The students learned about the mark the war left in the life of the writer, about his front biography and creation of the stories “The Science of Hatred”, “The Fate of a Man”, the novel “They Fought for Their Country”, about the prototypes of the heroes, the responses from the readers and screen versions of these works.

The children learned that in the war years M.A.Sholokhov was a war correspondent for the newspapers “Pravda”, “Krasnaya Zvezda”, and for the “Sovinformbureau” working on the five fronts of the army. Going to the front the writer knew well the situation at the front, attended the interrogation of military prisoners.

During the war Sholokhov published dozens of war essays including “In the Don Country”, “Directing to Smolensk”, “Enormity”, “Prisoners of War” and a story “The Science of Hatred”. Besides, already in those years Mikhail Alexandrovich worked over the novel “They Fought for Their Country” and some of its chapters were immediately published.

With excitement the children read letters from the collections of the Museum-Reserve about the reviews of “The Fate of a Man” and “They Fought for Their Country”, front stories of the people who survived the horrors of German captivity.

At the end of the class the children visited the working study of the writer.
