The Exhibition "They Fought for Their Country" Opened in the "Sholokhov Center"

31.07.2020

On July 28, 2020, the Sholokhov Center exhibition hosted the opening of the exhibition “They Fought for their Country”, dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory and the 115th anniversary of the birth of Mikhail Sholokhov. The exhibition is based on the theme of the Great Patriotic War in the life of Mikhail Sholokhov: his literary activity and the fate of his family in those years.

The exhibition was opened by the writer's grandson, First Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Culture of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, President of ICOM Russia Alexander Sholokhov. In his speech, he noted that the most natural thing this year, which showed us “how external circumstances can change our plans,” was “the opening of an exhibition dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the event when our grandfathers and fathers broke the back of the most powerful military machine of all times and peoples”.

“You cannot write about the war from afar. Mikhail Sholokhov, Yuri Bondarev, Alexander Tvardovsky and many other writers and journalists walked side by side with the soldiers and were on the front line, saw everything with their own eyes. This exhibition is a war through the eyes of Mikhail Sholokhov”, - said the director of the National Sholokhov Museum-Reserve Olga Anistratenko.

The ceremony was also attended by the head of the patriot search squad Andrei Popov, whose collection of exhibits dating back to the Great Patriotic War, replenished the Museum's funds and is now partially presented at the exhibition.

The exhibition features manuscripts, photographs and personal belongings of the writer, which will show the path of the writer and his works, the struggle he waged both at the front and in the literary field. The frontline life of Soviet soldiers and their opponents will be introduced to the visitor by uniforms and weapons, military household items and memorabilia.

The exhibition will work in the "Sholokhov-Center" of the National Sholokhov Museum-Reserve until December 1, 2020.
