“In a kindergarten on the outskirts of Minsk, where I work as a night watchman, a local scale event occurred. Ran a boy from the night group, the grandson of the nanny of this group. Ran away, taking a friend. Nanny, a very good nanny by vocation and a very good grandmother by nature, was terrified. His hero is one thing, but two have escaped. And she threw herself, with a torn heart in two, on searches — rushing through the streets, from house to house, looked into the basements, into dark corners, and into the entrances. Two heroes disappeared.
Looking for boys all ...
Thank God, they were discovered - several kilometers from the kindergarten - they walked proudly, armed with children's plastic pistols and sticks found along the way. When the police asked where they were going, the proud five-year-old grandson of a nanny, whose name I don’t call, it’s better not to give names in this country, he said:
- Let's go beat the police!
This boy is a prophet.
Through him, the indestructible word of conscience, with which people in this world live, has been revealed and said to everyone living in this country. The child, unlike adults, went to fulfill the covenant with which, taking a carbine, went to 1943 in the year on a mission my father, a partisan of the sabotage group of the Suvorov detachment. He went to beat the policemen. He went 17-th year.
Boy 5 years. In the yard 2010 year. But nothing has changed in this country. Policeman relevant more than ever. She looks at me on the street, she whips from the TV screen, nasal from the radio. Policeman grin throughout the country. That is why Belarus is ruthlessly saved. People are afraid of choice. Because tomorrow it will have to be done - to become policemen to the end, or still take toy pistols and sticks and go like five-year-old children to a heroic cause. But these are the locals - they do not want to be determined, they wobble in all directions. They hide their faces, they bluff and sit on two chairs. Such is the soul, such is история, such is the future, such is the dry residue of waving ... "
This is a fragment of a conversation with my old acquaintance - director, writer, author of scenarios about the Great Patriotic War and the Holocaust, Honored Journalist of the Republic of Belarus (RB), laureate of the first literary prize of them. A. Gorky, Traditions Prize for Writers of Russia, Prizes of the Union of Journalists of Belarus, three prizes of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Belarus for children's plays, a special prize of the President of Belarus, three prizes of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Belarus for military plays, several magazine awards and film festivals, a holder of the Union’s gold medal Cinematographers of the USSR. A. Dovzhenko, the son of a well-known local lore writer who participated in the storming of Berlin, who in today's Belorussia found only the place of a night watchman in a kindergarten, where he has been working for more than 5 years. And it is not just words.
On the anniversary of the 200 anniversary of the Patriotic War of 1812 in Belarus, the term “Patriotic War” was removed from the official historiography. It was rejected by many government departments - the Academy of Sciences, the National Bank, the ministries of culture, justice, education, etc. For the year, the authorities of Belarus organized only one scientific event for the anniversary date - the international conference 23-24 in November at the Belarusian State University, where it was again stated that the war is not Patriotic and the Belarusians did not participate in the partisan struggle. At the same time, on November 24, representatives of the authorities and the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Belarus, along with the ambassadors of the EU countries, took an active part in honoring the Napoleonic soldiers who died in the Berezina ...
Rejecting the domestic nature of the 1812 war of the year has far-reaching goals and consequences. This is a running-in of the coming comprehensive revision of the people's historical memory. The next step is a complete review of attitudes towards the Great Patriotic War. By analogy with the 1812 war of the year declared “Russian-French”, they are preparing to fix the name “Russian-German” for it. To whitewash the policemen, presenting them to the "Belarusian" side of the conflict, shifting the responsibility for the genocide of the Belarusians from the fascist punishers and their lackeys to the "bloody Stalinist partisans."
The history of domestic wars is being rewritten today in Belarus downright furiously. The local loud-voiced post-perestroika foam sometimes manages to outdo even Novodvorskaya with its May Day statements from Echo of Moscow: “We didn’t win this war. We were utterly defeated by Stalin and his troops, Stalin and the NKVD. ” Provincial Belarusian writers like Vladimir Orlov, in 1990, state oaths of the SS men, fascist lackeys and burgomasters who organized the mass genocide of the Belarusian and Jewish populations who published in state editions, today "at public meetings" declare that "Belarusians should continue fighting against Muscovites" . 12 June 2013, on the Day of Russia, the Minsk City Court satisfied the claim of the Minsk City Executive Committee and decided to liquidate the oldest and one of the largest organizations of Russian compatriots in Belarus - the Minsk Society of Russian Culture "Rus". Shortly before this, one of the initiators of deleting the term “Patriotic War” from the historical memory of Belarusians in the presence of Russian officials was presented with a Russian public award dedicated to the Patriotic War ...
An open attack on the historical memory of the Belarusians using the Baltic and Western Ukrainian developments did not begin today ... On the eve of the 65 anniversary of the victory, the books of I. Kopyla “Nebyshino. War "and V.Hursika" Crow і sang Drazhna ". The essence of these works: the war against the Belarusians began on September 1 1939, with the attack of the Soviet Union and Germany on Poland. The fascists quickly expelled the cowardly Red Army and treated Belarusians very well. Quote: “The Germans did not swear at us, they looked at us with interest and began to treat us with chocolate, which we also saw for the first time. I was less combat, I was in the tail and I did not get chocolate. It was insulting, tears appeared in the eyes. Seeing this, one German took a mouth organ from his pocket and gave it to me. ” Everything was wonderful, until the “bloody Stalinist hebnya” intervened, which began to send disguised saboteurs who were shooting at the Germans and causing punitive expeditions against civilians. The guerrillas are drunk and sadists, who feared the Germans and recounted their exploits. The main blame for organizing the massacres of the Belarusian population lies with the Kremlin and the Central Headquarters of the partisan movement.
The most violent "debunkers" of the Belarusian partisans are the Taras family in Belarus from the 1990s (in Soviet times, such writers made themselves "name" by chanting Belarusian partisans, including during the First World War, which was named before 1917 of the Second World War, in books such as "Mikolka-Steam Locomotive", and now they declare this war "Moskalsko-German"). The recently deceased elder brother, Valentin Taras, in Soviet times was distinguished by particular ideology even among local writers, taking a prominent place among them thanks to the following lines: “Stalin is alive and the people will listen to Stalin for many centuries - in the Stalin Central Committee, the Wise Stalin Genius lives!” At the beginning of 90, this same V. Taras sent his son Vitaly to work on Radio Liberty and riveted the 4-serial documentary “After Victory”, which appeared on Belarusian state channels, acting as about overs.
From this filmmaker, made by the turncoat, it followed that during the fascist occupation, the Belarusians lived a “normal and normal” life, among the invaders there were many “good lads” who entertained girls with mouth harmonics and fed children with chocolate. Occupants cared about Belarusians - they organized schools, orphanages and boarding schools, where they fed twice a day with marmalade. But the partisans were completely different ... Which, however, did not prevent 13-year-old V.Taras, who had tasted, by his own admission, German marmalade, to escape to these same partisans and sit out with them until the liberation of Belarus. In 1950, the young Valentin Taras made a swift career in the main party newspaper of the BSSR. Thanks to the fiery lines about “the immortal genius of Stalin” and the many years of reproach of the fellow students of the BSU journalism department - they say, while you, milk suckers, mothers kept skirts, we - the Soviet partisans - smashed the enemy and shed blood for you ...
Today, his younger brother, Anatoly Taras, publisher of “revealing” partisans of literature, says in numerous interviews that the guerrillas “mainly engaged in self-reliance, the population robbed and fought with their own, having destroyed more of their fellow citizens than the fascists in the 5-7 ... They robbed the population, and the population resisted as best they could. The entire leadership policy was aimed at the partisans provoking the Germans to the massacre ... the partisans did not fight in the field, the essence of their tactics is an attack from the corner, a backstab. But the Germans can not do this, it could only do the Bolsheviks ... For those who believe that in the history of the partisan movement there is something worthy of pride or admiration. Alas, nothing like that was there. This is just another ugly side of the war ... in many cases the partisans were no better than the invaders. What the guerrillas did the least - so it fought. The damage that they inflicted on the fascist invaders, their allies and supporters, is simply insignificant ... sometimes they fought against the enemy, but above all with their own people. "
Belarusian authorities sometimes adopt far from the best of the Soviet past, not wanting to notice problems and trying to report only on victories and achievements, including in matters of historical memory. The war seems to be trumpeting a lot, but they try to give more weight to its “Belarusian aspect”. Say, Belarusians beat Hitler, etc. State propaganda is trying to nationalize the legacy of Victory, arrogating to itself the status of the main savior not only of Moscow and the USSR, but also of Europe and the whole world. Often, it takes on forms that offend both moral sense and elementary taste when teenage girls, arriving at a memorial rally dedicated to the 70 anniversary of the 628 tragedy of Belarusian villages, burned along with residents of the SS punitive and policemen,… “Khatyn holiday”, arrange photo shoots with april on monuments to victims of fascism - on freshly laid flowers and inscriptions “Glory to the fallen heroes”, in order to post their photos on social networks ...
This year, the Belarusian authorities abandoned the 9 parade in May (officially this tradition was interrupted by the president several years ago and moved to Independence Day in July), the names of the heroes of the partisan movement disappear in Orsha in Slavic cities or Lev Dovator in Sharkovshchina. In parallel with the “overthrow” of the Soviet partisans, the imperceptible glorification of the “true inner-Belarusian” partisans, the Polish akhovtsev and Ukrainian Ounovtsy, is taking place. Those under the command of "German lads" who treated with chocolate and harmonica together with local scum burned people sick with typhus in the villages, fed children to shepherd dogs, destroying a total of 5.482 Belarusian villages. (The electronic database of the Belarusian villages burnt by the Nazis: db.narb.by).
In the spring, a significant roundtable “BNR as a national form of Belarusian statehood” was held at the editorial office of one of the government publications at the initiative of the Institute of History of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Belarus. To be clear, on the shield at the state level openly raised:
a) “Byelorussian People’s Republic” (BNR) proclaimed under the German occupation, whose presidents addressed memorandums of support to Kaiser Wilhelm (1918) and Adolf Hitler (1939);
b) The collaborators of the Nazis, declared today "pioneers and the main personages of the Belarusian national movement", like the destroyed in 1943, the guerrillas Nazi henchman Vaclav Ivanovo (his brother associate of Pilsudski) in 1920-ies "scientific" provides forcible de-Russification Byelorussian population, and later worked closely with the secret services of Hitler's Germany, pre-war Poland and the Home Army.
But this is a direct encroachment on the state ideology and the political course, which A. Lukashenko adhered to for a decade and a half. Those who do this, working under the wing of the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Belarus, threaten the results of the popular referendum, the sovereignty and symbolism of Belarus. It all started "innocently" - with the rejection of the domestic character of the 1812 war of the year. BNR resuscitation is the next step, meaning that the whole story, starting with 1918, will be turned on its head. Including 1939 events of the year. If these events were not reunification, the starting point of the current Belarusian statehood and territorial integrity disappears. If the Soviet partisans are bad, then the war was not the Great Patriotic War, and its real heroes are Akhovtsy, OUNovtsy and Nazi scum.
Under these conditions, anti-Semitic information campaigns are becoming natural with reasoning about the need to expel all Jews living in Belarus from the country, which causes thousands of outraged comments, forms a negative attitude towards the President of Belarus, towards the Russians. They claim that these campaigns are initiated by the employees of the Academy of Management under the President of the Republic of Belarus who control computer networks, where former ideologists of paramilitary nationalist organizations like the current First Vice-Rector Alexander Ivanovsky today determine the personnel and ideological policy of the Republic of Belarus and dismiss allies from Russia.
How and why can this happen on the Belarusian land? Instead of answering, I will simply quote Fyodor Dostoyevsky: “In the time of turmoil, vibrations and transitions always and everywhere appear different people. I am not talking about those so-called "advanced" ones who always hurry first of all (the main concern) and although very often with the silliest, but still with a certain more or less goal. No, I'm talking only about the bastard. In every transitional time this scum rises, which is in every society, and not only without any purpose, but without any sign of thought, but only expressing anxiety and impatience with all its might. Meanwhile, this bastard, without knowing it herself, almost always falls under the command of that small handful of “advanced” who act with a specific purpose, and she directs all this litter wherever she pleases, unless she herself consists of perfect idiots, which, incidentally, , it also happens ... What was our vague and what was the transition from — I don’t know, and no one, I think, doesn’t know ... And meanwhile, the meanest people suddenly get an advantage, and began to loudly criticize everything sacred, whereas before the mouth was not opened, and the first people, until then safely der avshie top, suddenly began to listen to them, while they themselves remain silent; and others giggle in such a shameful way.
