Nadia Bogdanov - this is not Barbie!

Yesterday my son and I were walking in the park. The weather is great, the mood is wonderful, life is good. It was good and the boys, who were laughing at one of the benches, showing each other cell phones. Well, good and good, that's nice. But among the enthusiastic cries of “Cool!” And “Cool!” I suddenly heard: “Oh, Portnova-Barbie!”. And then a number of well-known surnames, but with wild additions: “Kazey-spider, Kitty Ninja” ...

... got cold. Has approached. I asked to see. They are such fools, with pride and joy began to show new Internet fun: the pioneers of the heroes in the foolish foreign entertainment images. I got a cold on my skin. I had heard about such a game before, but then everything calmed down somehow, and it was not possible to see with my own eyes. And here - on you, before the eyes of wild pictures: the faces of our pioneers, heroes, frozen in a new terrible vestments. I was especially shocked by the picture of Zina Portnova: a girl with a serious, courageous face, with a Barbie outfit at her head. It seemed that Zina was looking at me from the screen and asked: “Has it sunk?” ...
- Do you know who these guys are? - I asked.
-Well yes. Pioneers are heroes.

And so calmly I was told that these pioneers were selling chips in a nearby kiosk.
“We just don’t know this one, Nadia Bogdanov,” the boys added. - What did she do?
I am a bad psychologist, and a teacher and I, too, no. Probably, it was necessary to respond in some other way, stronger. After all, they say that one phrase can make a person reconsider his life. I could not do this. But she said:
- Nadya was in a partisan detachment. She twice died at the hands of the Nazis and miraculously saved herself. She was brutally tortured, burned a star on her back, poured ice-cold water on the frost and beat them with ramrod. But she did not betray her. And you turn her into a fairy Ding-ding. Someone will come to your great-grandfathers in the cemetery and paint a mustache and a beard on their monuments. And then she will laugh at it.

And I went away. The only thing that comforted me at that moment: I did not hear the laughter behind me - the boys were silent. And we walked with the little boy rather slowly.
And I thought about Nadya. I can not fail to bring here her terrible and full of inhuman courage history.
Three Second Births of Azure
Nadia Bogdanov - this is not Barbie!
This girl is the youngest of those who are awarded the title of pioneer hero. After all, when the war began, Nadia was only nine years old. And she was born in Belarus and before the war lived in an orphanage.
In the first war months, the orphanage was evacuated to the city of Frunze of the Kirghiz SSR. But Nadia was not going to live behind the back of adults. In the train, she collected active children from other orphanages, and they slipped away during one of the stops, deciding to go to war. The guys wanted to get to the front line, but were in Vitebsk, behind enemy lines. But this did not stop them, they wanted revenge on the invaders. Then it seemed that it would be easy to fulfill our plans: the Germans didn’t let a single adult pass without a search, but they practically paid no attention to the children - are there many of them homeless!
The guys decided to blow up a German ammunition depot. The explosives were procured only by them in a known manner. But they did not know how to use it - children are children. And the trouble happened: the boys and girls had not yet reached the warehouse, and the explosives exploded. All died except Nadi. It was her "first rebirth" ...

By some miracle, the little girl sought out the partisan detachment of the 2 of the Belarusian Brigade (according to some sources, the 6 of the second). And persuaded to take her into the ranks of the fighters.

In the meantime, the October Revolution holiday was approaching. The city is captured by the enemy, residents are tormented by uncertainty, languishing, waiting for liberation. I had to show them that the liberation would come. And the partisans decided to hang out in the city in honor of the holiday three red flags. This task was assigned to ten Nadushka and twelve-year-old Van Zvontsov. Adults to get into the city was simply unrealistic: the fascists searched everyone. And even if the hat smelled of gunpowder, they were immediately shot.

... At dawn 7 November 1941, two dangling kids came into town to sell brooms. Small, miserable, they dragged the sleigh on themselves. What suspicion could there be? Who would have thought that among the broomsticks are stored three red banners that little men want to hang out in a city captured by a fierce enemy? However, Vanya, who was not accustomed to partisan work, was very nervous. Nadia decided to calm him down. And, barely seeing a German patrol, she herself came up and asked to buy a broom from her. The fascists laughed and chased her away.

As soon as it got dark, the children set about completing the task. They hung the flags safely, but let down their care. Nadia made her way to the cigarette factory, collected a gift for the partisans, knowing that they had nothing to smoke. This was a fatal mistake.

Already on the road from the city the Nazis caught up with the guys and searched. Found cigarettes. They did not begin to talk, they were immediately taken to headquarters. The children held hands all the way and wept.
At the headquarters they were tortured, put face to the wall and shot over their heads. But without having achieved anything, they threw themselves in the cellar to the wounded Soviet prisoners for the night, in order to get rid of the next day.
In the morning before the execution, the prisoners tried to block the children by themselves.
- Beast! Spare the guys! - they shouted to fascists and fell under their bullets ...
From horror experienced Nadia lost consciousness. And it happened for a fraction of a second before the shot prepared for it thundered ...

After a while the girl came to her senses. She lay with the dead. Among them was Vanechka Zvontsov. Nadia got out of the ditch and went to the forest, where she was found by the partisans. This is how her “second birth” happened ...

After this terrible incident, the partisans for a long time did not let the girl alone on assignments. Along with her, the head of the partisan intelligence service Ferapont Slesarenko always stayed. But it was very difficult to keep a bold, quick girl in idle. Nadia was eager to avenge the fascists.

Once she, pretending to be a beggar woman, brought information to the detachment, thanks to which the partisans realized that the time was right for striking the fascists. And the blow was struck on the night after reconnaissance.
In this fight, Slesarenko was wounded in the arm. He fell unconscious, and when he came to himself, he had already lost a lot of blood. Together with Nadia, they are very far behind the partisans who have already left for the forest. Then Ferapont ordered the girl to leave him and go to the squad for help. Nadia did just that. But before the detachment was about ten kilometers, it was very hard to walk in deep snow. Nadya walked about three kilometers and came across a small hamlet. Near one of the houses where the police were having dinner, the girl saw a horse harnessed to a sledge. She quietly sat in the sled, sent them to the forest, found Slesarenko. And together they returned to the squad! Just think: a little girl saved an adult ...

... In February, 1942, Nadia carried out another task: it was necessary to blow up the bridge to Karasevo. The girl made her way safely to the destination and laid the explosives. But I did not have time to go far - I came across the policemen. They searched Nadia, found the remaining piece of explosives in her backpack. A partisan pretended to have found him here on the road. And here in front of the policemen the bridge blew up. They understood everything, tied up the girl and brought to the German headquarters.
What did Nadia go through here ... She was beaten with ramrod. Burned on the back of a star. Put on hot coals. They poured water in the cold. But nothing is achieved. A small heart that did not know mothering, because Nadya grew up in an orphanage ... Where did she find the strength to endure all this? ...

The fascists, having considered the bloodied, unfeeling girl as dead, were thrown into the cold, because our troops were already approaching, the beasts had to retreat. Nadia was picked up by the villagers of Zanalyuchka. And went out! But Nadia could no longer participate in the war: she practically lost her sight. So it happened her "third rebirth" ...

A few years after the war, Nadia was sent to Odessa, and there she came to see Academician Vladimir Petrovich Filatov. The doctor largely returned her lost eyesight, Nadya could see again! She returned to Vitebsk, got a job at the plant and did not tell anyone that she fought. But once I heard on the radio Ferapont Slesarenko. He said that he would never forget the dead comrades, and among them he called Nadia Bogdanova, thanks to whom he remained alive. It was then that Nadia announced that she had survived ...

She was awarded the Order of the Red Banner, World War I degree, medals. All my life I lived in Vitebsk, raised four children. Nadezhda Bogdanova (Kravtsova) 21 August 1991 of the year died. And her squad was called Azure ...

        Duc, what to look for them? Vaughn Gozman with Nadezhdin and other evil spirits is shown on TV every day on a talk show. Do these think something better? These are the "spiritual fathers" of these creatures.

    Can’t parents see what their children are playing? Is there really no one else to tell them about the heroes who sacrificed themselves in the fight against the Nazis? It should not be.

      Yes, you know, I also ask ... Why is the heroism and military fury of the Soviet army praised by the Swedish metal band on world tours ?! Why don't we make the same computer games as the Americans do where they will publicize any even the slightest operation as if it were a triumph of triumphs, and from the voiced "valor", "heroism", "selflessness" begins to feel sick.

      The country loses the fight for the minds of its citizens and does not use powerful means of delivering information.

    This is due to the fact that in our schools they do not want both children and young people to know the history of their homeland, not to know their heroes. That is why liberals are against the idea of ​​IDEOLOGY in Russia. Look at the same USA. They know and defend the history of their state, although it is the shortest in the world. They do not criticize those who stood at the helm of the state in schools. All their flaws are blamed on others. And so almost every country. The exception is only Russia. And liberals and some historians are looking, with some malicious joy, for something in the history of their MOTHERLAND, and even though to belittle the role of Russia in the history of the world. And much of this is taught in schools. Without ideology, there will never be a full-fledged state. This is well understood by liberals, therefore and oppose its creation.

    My heart can’t stand it any more, as I think, to what low level our education and teacher’s training level have fallen. Patriotic education was forgotten with the collapse of the USSR, many who grew up in this vacuum and have become parents now, are not able to give anything good to their children. For them, the main thing is only their own well-being, not reckoning with anyone's opinion and not thinking about other people. Many things have been lost ... Save the Almighty Russia!

    And Nadia Bogdanova died on the eve of the collapse of the Union ... How many heroes were and how little they remember! The only good news is that they no longer see the revolutions of triumphant dibilism in different parts of the once united country that they defended.

    I was recently at the monument to the Unknown Soldier, next to the graves of very young soldiers of the Red Army - up to 30-odd years maximum, mostly about 25. He stood, looked at the inscription: "They died for the Motherland," and thought: "And where is this Motherland now, Why did these very young fighters die? To demolish monuments of gratitude to the Red Army in Poland as part of the fight against the communist past? So that in Ukraine vandals smash city centers, leaving only pedestals? " In Soviet times, children from school were taken to the monument to the Unknown Soldier, in my school years they no longer exist (late 90s - early 2000s).

    do not want specific individuals who are sitting on well-worn salaries and do not want to lose warm places. school directors and lyceums are the brakes and provocateurs. where the schools have adequate directors and groups with the appropriate education.

    Yeah, if earlier in the history textbooks for the study of the Great Patriotic War, a very large section was given and this topic was dealt with in more than one lesson, and even after that they wrote essays and tests. Yes, we knew history. And now, "a couple of sheets" in the textbook and that's it. And who is to blame .......
    This is our education now. And then we say that children don’t know what.

    Traitors in power betray Russia, its people and the memory of the past. The son of Yakunin lives in England and filed a citizenship application. Lavrov's daughter lives in the United States. The daughters of our guarantor live one in Holland, the other in South Korea. Son of Medvedev dreams of studying in England. What kind of patriotism can we talk about? People see everything, especially children.

    That is why we won the war because there were such people in the country! And there were enough of them to lead others and win. And not from pragmatic positions they went to fight, but fought, because they did not want to live as slaves. "We are not slaves - we are not slaves!" - this slogan was firmly in the minds of the Soviet people.
    But if we talk about today's youth, then now there are those who do not dream of England and do not live in South Korea, but live, work, raise children in Russia, sow bread and build cosmodromes, smash the enemy if necessary outside the country.
    And this will not succeed in organizing Ukraine with us. Russia is Russia, just like France is France, England is England, and the USA is the USA. But for those who believe that their country is Europe, and the historical consciousness is gripping, like drug addicts, to forget themselves from fear or from hopelessness and a small mind, there will be no place in the future on earth.

    - If Ferapont Slesarenko did not live to Victory Day, perhaps we would not have learned about this holy woman. Nadezhda Bogdanova (Kravtsova) died on August 21, 1991, at the height of the putsch and the Yeltsin lawlessness. Probably her heart could not stand the last test - the collapse of a great power - the USSR.
