The history of the orderly of the Soviet pilot-ace Ivan Kozhedub

16

Any people need a memory of their past in order to understand the present and imagine their future. It is memory in difficult periods of life, both for people and for the country as a whole, that can become a source of patriotic inspiration and spiritual strength. And just such a reminder for us is the Great Patriotic War and the feat of our fathers and grandfathers.


Unfortunately, in recent years, modern counterfeiters have been trying by all possible means to “revise”, “replay” the results of World War II, “rewrite” almost the entire history Soviet period. What scale and depths this phenomenon can achieve will help to understand the video below.

The story that is being told here at one time did not receive widespread fame, although by the degree of tragedy it certainly deserves it.

This tragic story of the orderly of the commander of the 176th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment, the 15-year-old son of the regiment, the Jewish boy David Hight, amazes to the core. She can be found in the memoirs of three times Hero of the Soviet Union, ace of the entire anti-Hitler coalition, Ivan Kozhedub.

What did David Haight once say about himself? What kind of trouble did the commander and orderly have for two? The answers to these questions are in the video:

    I hate it when the author of an article throws all the responsibility for the "thoughts" on the "videos" ... there are all the answers .. what for to post this if there is no point of view? what's the point? we have already read it, seen it, so what? Where is your point of view? we have known the other for a long time ..

      Comrade, it's better this way than nothing. Of course, everyone who read the book and Kozhedub's memoirs knows everything. And pay attention to the visits and comments under this video. This topic is not interesting, but the Chinese dviglo, it is interesting, there they will be served on shoulder straps for "humor".

      I hate it when the author of an article

      This is not the author of the article, there is no article here. This edition, in the absence of content, fills in the "empty" space.
      But in fact, you are one hundred percent right

        Firstly, the video came out in the video section, the second content is ONE. What is the problem then?
        After all, not everyone knows that a close relative of Kozhedub died in a concentration camp.

          >> What's the problem?
          And where do you see what I wrote about some problem? She is not.
          There is, and not the first, reference to the video that I don't like and what I openly speak about. Or do I need to "eat" what they give?
          ..

    Our television does not tell anything about our heroes of the Second World War, Pokryshkin, Kozhedub, Chernyakhovsky and others. There are no films about them, but all TV channels are filled with Galkin's ugly antics, the poison of Guzman's Russophobic hatred and the dances of half-naked girls who are called singers. And all this the mosquitoes appropriate the "honored" and the "people", while not being ashamed of the people.

      They can not. The USSR is evil. This is the state ideology in a state where ideology is prohibited. The USSR is all the more evil at a time when constant comparisons of our reforms and reforms in all other countries began. Since it turned out that any of our reformers causes tremendous damage by their very existence, that he destroys our country even when he sleeps, the constant comparison with the Stalinist USSR simply pisses off our "market people". What do you want from television in such conditions?

      The fact is that our heroes, and the TV is ALIEN, is as alien as the power itself.

    Where did the cons to articles go? Why did they decide that I would increase the attendance of someone’s channels?

    It would be interesting if the author spoke about the future fate of David, otherwise the retelling of the book looks somehow wretched.
