Life of remarkable monuments: Sholokhovskaya "The fate of man" in Uryupinsk


"Military Review" continues the rubric "Life of remarkable monuments."


In the first issue, we recall, a small story was presented about the monument in the Udmurtia Sarapul - a monument dedicated to the peasants sending bread to starving residents of Moscow and Petrograd during the formation of the Soviet regime.

In the new plot - the city of Uryupinsk, the name of which is probably known to every resident of our country (and not only ours). For those who have been to this wonderful town located in the Volgograd region, perhaps the most famous and memorable was the monument to the goat - a visiting card of the edge of knitted products from down. However, in the capital of the Russian province (namely, such a poster meets those arriving in Uryupinsk) there is a monument that is much less likely to be found on presentation cards. And this monument is very soulful.



We are talking about a sculptural composition dedicated to the heroes of the story of Mikhail Sholokhov "The fate of man." A monument was erected in the year of the 60th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, and its authorship belongs to the sculptor S.P. Kalchenko.

The sculptural composition is placed symbolically - near the building of the city Council of Veterans.



The heroes of the sculptural group are recognizable, including the remarkable film adaptation of 1959. We are talking about the directorial debut of Sergei Bondarchuk - the film "The Fate of a Man", which can be attributed to the real classic of incarnation in the cinema of literary works about the war and how it went through a skating rink on human destinies.

Bench. A man sits on it - a driver Andrei Sokolov. Nearby is barefoot Vanya, the same boy who has lost his parents and whom he decides to tell Sokolov after the war that he is his father.



Touching sculptures are made without monumentalism, with warmth and simplicity warming the soul.

Why is the monument to the heroes of the story of Mikhail Sholokhov installed in Uryupinsk?

It's simple - in the literary work in this city the main character gets a job and it is in Uryupinsk (then the Stalingrad Region) that he meets an orphan boy.

It is worth noting that in 1959 the film "The Fate of Man" by the magazine "Soviet Screen" was recognized as the best film of the year. The film by Sergei Bondarchuk took awards at prestigious film festivals in Moscow, Karlovy Vary, Melbourne, Georgetown, etc.

      Judging by the monument, the budget was very modest.

      In the first photo I tried to understand for a long time where the boy’s head is, or rather, what’s wrong with her. But from the last it became clear that the boy turned. I think the budget was really not big, but it turned out not very bad. In general, being on business trips, and I have to travel a lot, I really like, if possible, consider the monuments. They bring to any settlement, whether it is a village or a city, a certain charm and comfort.

        “Folder, dear! I knew! I knew you would find me! I have been waiting for you to find me! ”

        As in the song: "So two loneliness met." Piercing, to tears!
        This work of Sholokhov is simply necessary to study at school and write an essay on it.

            Pocket format was a little book - read on time. Then, when we were taken as a whole class after classes to the "epic" Great Patriotic War "in 20 episodes with V. Lanov and with a foreword by LI Brezhnev for each series, and not on the series" Unknown War ".

            By the way, B. Lancaster recognized the great artist precisely then. And, by the way, Rod McKuen - Toward the Unknown heard then. R. Carmen eternal memory for such a film ...

            I, too, studied, wrote essays at school. And I like the romance with the film. But what kind of nuance was of interest to me - with what fright in 1944 did the Germans transfer Andrei Sokolov to the deconvocated category? Germans would hardly have thought of putting a prisoner of war, who had repeatedly fled from a concentration camp, as a driver to an officer carrying a military secret. And in order to get to the “Khiva” from the camp, one must assure the German command of complete loyalty (for example, surrender the camp underground or something like that) and take the appropriate oath. Then questions arise to "Death." Some cant in the novel, not noticed by the author ... What will be the opinions?

              from which fright in 1944 did the Germans transfer Andrei Sokolov to the undeployed category?

              I myself was not there, of course, so I can only speculate.

              When it’s hard at the front, they pick up all the remnants in the rear. And planting a private Wehrmacht with a driver is a waste in these conditions. Because - ordinary Wehrmacht - to the Eastern Front (you can't send Andrei Sokolov there!), And in his place - who will succeed. Impact labor, the absence of violations of the regime is a sufficient reason to unleash even today in any zone of the world.
              That is what is described by Sokolov’s words by Sholokhov. Although my opinion on this is based not only and not so much on "The Fate of Man." I managed to read a lot of other things besides Sholokhov. Well, for example, M. Nisley's “The Witness of the Prosecution” is fiction, but the author lived up to the last incision with a scalpel on the instructions of “Dr.” Mengele. There is a lot of documentary evidence, but this is not a commentary topic, but a big talk about where adaptation ends in captivity and collaboration begins.

              And yes. I will say what I saw (though not from personal experience). If you really want to “break loose”, but you understand that it will end with a ramshackle chase with Alabai and Zindan - you can pretend and endure a lot of things - just to let the villains calm down and believe that you have reconciled. Just to choose the right moment.

              And I don’t think that the German Sholokhov had any strategic secrets. No more than any Soviet major construction battalion.

                Even today, the mark "inclination to escape" suggests significant difficulties in obtaining relief regimes. Moreover, the practice of attracting Khivi to help already by 1944 was completely run-in. Considering that “resistance” in the camps was quite common, I doubt that a dedicated look will serve as the basis for trust on the part of the SS. About the quality of the major builder, it was said in the novel that the documents he had were valuable, although about the "strategic value" was not stated. Therefore, I think that counterintelligence would have many questions for the former Khivi.

      Great people, who had all this, who survived and survived all this. And we will stand - I have no doubt.

      Due to the specifics of the military profession, I will die with my department so that the world will not know. Yes, I didn’t need it before, but now ... But the country should know about its heroes - and about Stalingrad, and about the Nevsky Piglet - about everything ... We, in the Union, knew - we were taught, we were educated, They showed us a movie and made us read books. Now that the youngsters don’t know, it’s not them who need to be shot, but those who taught their stories ....A generation has grown up, which is on the drum, who took Berlin and why. That's for this "teachers" need to shoot ...

      Do not even shoot - hang in public with a reason ....

    The idea of ​​the monument is wonderful and the location is well thought out. But here with the recognition of the characters there is some stretch. For example, I did not recognize Bondarchuk, and therefore I would understand the idea of ​​the monument only from a description of it.

        Tsereteli is a mediocre artisan treated by power for kickbacks. HUGE budget money for the well-known and despised by all, in whom at least one "divine spark" is - "I am an artist, I SO see" ...

        I am sure - the place to the monument to Peter the Great in Moscow is the work of this artisan - at best - in his country house ....
        All other "creations" are in color ...

        Monumentalist, damn it ... Vuchetich - monumentalist, A. Kibalnikov - monumentalist. Here is a monumental art



        And Tsereteli is a grabber and artisan ... Modeling pots - and then the masters are better and more honest ...

      So in the 19th century, Parisians also spoke of a tower built temporarily for the world exhibition. And now this is a recognizable symbol of Paris.

        I don’t know what they were saying, but near the tower, due to its complexity and openwork, it makes a strong impression, neither pictures, nor videos transmit this.
        Just an amazing engineering masterpiece near
        It is unclear who did not like him, he fit perfectly into the view of Paris - not at all an old city, by the way

          Who didn’t like the tower:

          "Emil Zola, Charles Garnier and Alexander Dumas Jr. They wrote:" We, writers, artists, sculptors, architects and beauty lovers of Paris, sincerely express our indignation in the name of defending the French style, architecture and history, against the inappropriate and terrible Eiffel tower "."

          “The writer Guy de Maupassant. He simply hated this“ skinny pyramid of metal stairs ”, this“ huge ugly and skinny skeleton. ”Many asked him why, having such a strong hostility to the tower, he comes and has breakfast every day in a restaurant located on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Guy answered every time that he did it for aesthetic reasons, because the restaurant on the second floor of the tower is "this is the only place in all of Paris where this ugliness is not visible."
          Source: https://aif.ru/realty/city/sram_parizha_kak_francuzy_protiv_stroitelstva_eyfelevoy_bashni_buntovali

          This is a question of the fact that at first we don’t like something in architecture, and then it becomes a highlight and attracts tourists from all over the world.
          But at the same time, the monument should be made non-trivially.

            Yes, guides like to tell these stories in Paris.
            I do not know what they were unhappy with.
            Their incorrectness was clearly obvious initially, the tower is quite in the style of Paris built in the 19th century.
            Perhaps, however, in the very first years it had a too new look, even for old Paris, but the fact that the tower stylistically blend in organically is undoubted.
            You can argue about the architectural features and the style of the center of Pompidou or the Louvre pyramid (however, the latter also hung, I suspect, after it became slightly cloudy :), but there can be no doubt about the tower

      Yes, Maupassant scolded the Eiffel Tower with the last words.
      But nonetheless...

      To see what descendants will say about Tsereteli's “creations” in 100 years.
      Although, if the exam will progress - and Tsereteli "Peter" will be a masterpiece ....

    The work perfectly reveals the inner world of a small person and the film is very serious! I think the monument does not carry the semantic load that the writer Sholokhov and director Bondarchuk tried to put into the film in his film.
