Memories of the Unconquered: in the year of the 75 anniversary of the complete lifting of the siege of Leningrad


The sky is gloomy, clouds of lead, Nazi planes appear in the sky and dump a deadly cargo onto the streets of the city. Cold, hunger, snow. What hope for the best can be in such conditions, - any of us could say today. But we are not at all the people who have withstood all these ordeals, we cannot put in their heads their way of thinking, their faith in themselves, their incredible desire to live, create, love - even when the word "survive" is barely suitable.


In 2019, 75 years have passed since the lifting of the Leningrad blockade - one of the worst troubles in stories our whole country. Almost 900 days of stamina and incredible courage.

On the channels "History" and "Russia" a film was released, which is called the 901 day. The film presents the evidence of those who went through all the horrors of the blockade, who every day then, in Leningrad, waited and hoped for a speedy Victory. Waited and waited.

It should be noted that the artistic image realized in the film is a combination of archival filming of the 1940's and shots from the modern life of the unconquered city and the city of the unconquered.

Piskaryovskoye Memorial Cemetery


One of the heroes of the film:

Today, all these houses do not remember what happened to them. And I remember ...

The artist transfers his thoughts and his pain to the canvas to convey the memory of the blockade events to new generations. Link to the movie.

    Today, all these houses do not remember what happened to them. And I remember ...
    This was told to me by my grandmother, who survived the blockade in house No. 37 sq. 481 Vyborg Avenue (where Vyborg Department Store is).

      Let's drink to those who commanded the companies
      Who was dying in the snow,
      Who made the way through swamps to Leningrad,
      Breaking the throat of the enemy!

    In 2014, my father was awarded this award by the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Belarus as a participant in those events. Alas, he has been gone for 2 years.

    That is not to speak and write, renamed, but for St. Petersburg it is LENINGRAD!
    And it’s not Lenin’s business, but the people who fought and died in this city.

    And I say to my granddaughter - Leningrad.

      Are you from the banks of the Neva? My grandmother, a blockade, always said “Peter” if the conversation was not about the times of the USSR. The feat of Leningraders will remain for centuries, and, in my opinion, it is very good that now we are Petersburgers. Because, we are not the ones who survived the blockade. They are Leningraders, they are heroes. Before them were St. Petersburg, after them, too, St. Petersburg.

        Your set of letters and punctuation is not clear. Learn to write correctly your "brain exertion." Respect to your grandmother, but it is unlikely that she found Petrograd and St. Petersburg -

            since when did Leningraders and their feat become alien and alien to the non-Russian Federation and “New Petersburgers”. Vasily, where is the honest position of a citizen of the Russian Federation?

              If the word “stranger” disturbs you, replace “stranger’s feat” with “other people's feat”.

                    I agree, another, more cruel time was. And in the attack, the tank did not go, and was not in the bayonet. But .... The memory, and the memories of my grandmother, can’t be forgotten (provided that I don’t .. (I apologize for the mat). I’m not a hero, I just served in the KChF fleet at 99 and had a chance to see Yugoslavia, and what they did "democratic hawks" there, according to the Oath, he served.

    Regarding the Petersburgers, they were different, which is a sin to conceal. Only here, many were so happy when Carlos Mannerheim was hung a memorial plaque, well, well, he is also a Petersburger and general of the Russian army, all the brave Swedish or Finnish "patriot". Leningrad - sorry and heart aches, dies ....
    "we are Petersburgers" - with bright words and clothes
    with a ribbon of St. George on a bag, on slack and greasy pants
    Braided in unwashed hair
    They shout only once a year, on the red days of the calendar,
    Ile at the behest of the tsar, "we are Petersburgers"
    We are the "chosen" we are "cool" ...
    A lot of bread and cookies
    It turns out their expiration date
    Are you carrying them to the mine, "we are St. Petersburg"
    Boasting no knowledge of history
    Careless and down
    Haughty eyes and sebaceous lips
    Blossom - Peter
    Forgetting the City of St. Peter.
    "we are Petersburgers" in euphoria shout you
    And what did you save and increase? ...
    Leningrad suddenly became
    "Unnecessary Price" Victory
    I ask you, "we are the patriots of St. Petersburg"
    Do not turn bread and words into garbage
    Come to the silent elderly
    Share the bread you don’t need ...
    And thank Leningraders, thank you
    That in the 21st century shout "we are Petersburgers" ...

    Of course, it is better to be silent. I think Leningrad was saved by an innate culture of communication, respect for each other.
