Opening of the Exibition in the Yesenin Museum-Reserve

22.10.2019

An exhibition from the funds of the National Sholokhov Museum-Reserve “... Brothers, Don’t Judge Your Brother” was opened on October 18, 2019 in the State Yesenin Museum-Reserve. It talks about the Vyoshensky (Upper Don) uprising, the 100th anniversary of which is celebrated this year.

Mikhail Sholokhov vividly and reliably depicted uprising of the Cossacks in the Upper Don in the 3rd book of the novel “And Quiet Flows the Don”. The writer was the first to talk openly about the deepest tragedy of the people and conveyed to readers the truth about the causes of the uprising.

Visitors of the exhibition will see photographs, documents, schemes telling about the main stages of the confrontation, learn about the difficult fate of the participants, in particular, Kharlampiy Ermakov and the leader of the uprising Pavel Kudinov. The exhibition presents the Cossack military uniform, elements of equipment, campaign leaflets, illustrations for the novel “And Quiet Flows the Don”.

At the opening of the exhibition, the audience was welcomed by the head of the marketing and public relations department of the State Yesenin Museum-Reserve I.V. Agapova, who expressed hope for further fruitful cooperation. Employees of the Sholokhov Museum-Reserve answered numerous questions from visitors, including employees of municipal and federal museums in the Ryazan region.

The exhibition “... Brothers, Don’t Judge Your Brother” will work in the exhibition hall of the Yesenin Museum-Reserve in the village of Konstantinovo until December 15, 2019.
