Domestic example of a civilized attitude to history

48
After the collapse of the USSR, a wave of struggle against the “communist legacy” swept over the fragments of the Soviet empire. Under the friendly hooting of the democrats of the “first guild”, monuments were demolished, renamed streets, cities and other geographic objects. Most of all went to "grandfather" Lenin. Moreover, statistics show that the most massive wave of demolition of monuments to Ilich in the beginning of 90 swept through Western Ukraine, when in just one 1991 year in cities and regions of the region more than 250 monuments to the "leader of the world proletariat" were dropped. The trend of the new Russia did not bypass either, although, again, if you believe the statistics, the Russian scale of “decommunization” still did not reach the Ukrainian one.


From 5,5 thousands of monuments to Lenin on the territory of Ukraine remain less than sixth today, and in some cases local administrations have been trying to pass off the demolition of concrete, bronze, stone, plaster and other "leaders of the world proletariat" as the main achievement of the Maidan coup.

In fairness, it must be said that the “leader of the world proletariat” and he himself sinned by punitive actions with respect to stories countries, and even for someone, and for him the demolition of the monuments of the "past regimes" was almost a matter of life. And the current Ukraine, demolishing Lenin's monuments and doing renaming geographic objects, without even noticing it, actually fulfills one of the early Soviet slogans: “to the ground, and then ...” And, admittedly, “to the ground” in Kiev turns out quite cheerfully and effectively, but with the answer to the question, when will the aforementioned “and then ...” follow and what, actually, “then” is generally expected is obvious problems. Here, Kiev insects are far from Lenin and Post-Lenin's large-scale programs (economic, social, military-technical and others) and the results of their implementation ... The scale is not the same - and the village, as they say, is taxing with might and main ...

And the current (next) wave of the so-called “decommunization”, which covers Ukraine with its head, leads to the question: is there an example of when the history of a country, whatever its periods, can and should be treated carefully, if only because it is history, and to attempt its constant rewriting is the silliest of the lessons.

Usually, when it comes to a reverent attitude to history, attempts to preserve its various stages in people's memory, China is remembered - the country where there is a place and numerous monuments of Mao, and religious monuments, and objects of modern China's cultural era. But why go so far when in our country there are enough places where history is treated with great respect and real trepidation, where people do not seek to throw off symbols from past eras from pedestals, and, to the best of their abilities, are busy preserving historical heritage, focusing on creation.

One of these places is dedicated to this material. This is one of the oldest Russian cities, located on the Kursk land - just a few dozen kilometers from the state border with Ukraine. It's about ancient Rylsk, which in its almost 900-year history has never changed its name, despite the fact that it passed through the era of the Troubles and the reign of False Dmitry, and through echoes of palace coups, and through the revolutionary events of the beginning of the XX century, and through Like other Russian cities, the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Today, this very small town with a population of about 16-17 thousand people turned into an example of how you can relate to your own history at the civil and municipal level. In the city, historical eras literally coexist with each other. Ukrainian neighbors, who are “to the ground, and then ...”, should learn how to preserve the cultural and historical heritage without excessive pompousness, and how to pass on to descendants what was created in earlier epochs.

One of the examples of the historical pragmatics of the city is plates with double street names (Soviet and pre-revolutionary). This practice is today used, of course, not only in Rylsk, but this city was one of the first new settlements in Russia, whose authorities did not begin to uproot history, but decided to get down to business in a truly civilized way.

Sverdlov Street - Vasilievskaya Street. Lenin Street - Preobrazhenskaya Street. Volodarsky Street - Polevaya Street.

Domestic example of a civilized attitude to history




It should be noted that the signs with double street names - this is not an element of street decor. They also perform a quite practical function - departures reach the addressee when specifying either of the two street name options. The case when the local branch of the Post of Russia can be expressed, as the modern youth says, respect.

There is a special place in Rylsk, which can be called the historical quintessence of the city. This is a small square near the city garden, on which there are three monuments of completely different eras.

The first is a monument to the native (1747) of the city, Grigory Shelekhov (Shelikhov) - the great Russian explorer and traveler, whom the poet Derzhavin once called Russian Columbus. Shelekhov - a researcher of the Kuril and Aleutian Islands, the founder of the first Russian settlements in North America (Alaska), the founder of the Northeastern Trading Company, which after his death was transformed into a Russian-American one.



The second is a monument in honor of the heroes who fell in the battles of the Great Patriotic War, the liberators of the city from the German fascist occupation.



The third is a cross in memory of warriors who laid down their heads in the most different epochs of the city’s existence. This is a thematic monument, which itself is the embodiment of a civilized attitude to history and Orthodox culture.



Literally 30 meters from the square is the snow-white Assumption Cathedral, built in 1811 year, seriously damaged in Soviet times, and today is actively restored and restored its magnificence.



And just three or four blocks away - the main city square, on which a monument to Lenin stands in front of the building of the Rila administration.



Is this not an example of civilization, is this not an example of how a country should relate to its history - not blaming the rulers and ancestors, but calmly and methodically engaging in the creation of what we ourselves will pass on to new generations.

    All the same, the matter is in relation to the facts of our history. From the beginning a fact, then the recognition of its importance, the decision to perpetuate. And an assessment. And the law, new names only to new streets. That there was no delirium: st. Blucher-Noble.

        The gradual crowding out and squeezing out of old names, erasing the memory of people whose names were given to the streets - this is the true purpose of such an event. It's my opinion.

            Probably, some Rurikovich are hanging around in a meeting. To some little tart Golitsyn or Obolensky and not to get. Yes, and most importantly - the leader of the nobility, he is a giant of thought, is he a person close to the emperor - is present? Without it - not comme il faut (again, the Palace of Pioneers will succeed). You really kick the nobles there so that they don’t drop the brand or mess it up. smile

      I don’t know how in Tutaev, in Rybinsk, the central avenue under Soviet power, as it should be Lenin Avenue, was divided under the Democrats, one part became Krestovoi Street (pre-revolutionary name), the other remained Lenin Avenue. They also renamed several streets.

    The most amazing thing is that the Bolsheviks in the construction of new cities sinned the most ordinary Russian names of new streets. They wanted to forget about their idols and heroes? Or considered themselves more worthy of their predecessors. Or maybe common sense triumphed, because I didn’t want to walk along Lenin all the time.
    The second amazing fact is that today the opposition (!) Is going to Voykovskaya, which they could not rename today. Continuation of traditions?

    A wave of renaming fashion swept all over Russia. From Moscow to the very outskirts. Renamed, of course, at the request of the population. In Buturlinovka, Voronezh Region, Ivanovka Street was renamed into Kirov Street (Kirov never happened here). Historical street names (Prigorivka, Snegirivka, Brazhnikivka, etc.) were replaced (spending a lot of money), and in everyday life people call streets in the old (familiar) way. And no one asked the authorities: "Where is the money, Zin?" In Moscow, the historical names are returned, and in the backwoods they are changing the historical ones to the ones that have been sucked from the finger.

    You can either be proud or ashamed of your personal life lived as well as the history of your native country. As a rule, there are both periods. The past can not be redone. But you can bring sincere repentance for your sins and ease your soul from suffering.
    Since each person has his own truth, it is impossible to reach a general agreement in assessing a particular historical period on the basis of the truth-false paradigm. This can only be done from the point of view of the truth-false paradigm. For truth is one and absolute.
    But people in their mass seek the truth, but not the truth. Hence the result ...

    Considering that after 1917 the kamunyaki demolished and renamed everything as clean, which had at least some relation to the previous government (up to the monuments to Skobelev or the monument in honor of the battle of Icahn), then ask for the opinion of these cattle about the "historical memory" - has no practical meaning. For this trash "historical memory" is blanks, Kirovs, Volodarskys, Voikovs and Sverdlovs, but there was no Russia, there was only eSeSeR.

    Fortunately, we do not have such "insanity" as in Ukraine, but, unfortunately, we are not doing well with this matter either. And not just anywhere, but in the capital. In Moscow, in the Alexander Garden near the Kremlin, there was a stele with the names of famous revolutionaries, erected there by the Bolsheviks in 1918. No matter how you relate to these revolutionaries, no matter how you relate to the architectural merits of this stele, it was a historical monument of the revolutionary era. We have not so many monuments of that time. Instead of the demolished stele, a gaudy, lurid replica with a gilded double-headed eagle and the coat of arms of the Romanovs was installed. First, the replacement of originals with remakes and imitations is a very dubious matter. Is this a respect for history? (And if the Bolsheviks demolished something, then this is not an excuse for modern demolitions. The history of Russia is not only a pre-revolutionary history, but also a Soviet one). But most importantly, why is this better than the demolition of Soviet monuments in Ukraine? Exactly the same actions that we have, that they have, only, fortunately, we have on a smaller scale.

      Actually, it was the Bolsheviks who remade the stele in honor of the 300th anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty, which was erected in the Alexander Garden in 1913 as a monument to the revolutionaries, having previously cut down what has now been restored.

    In Samara, we also have many streets with similar double names. This of course applies to the oldest part of the city. And it is right. Time will judge and dot the E without additional radical decisions. After all, no one will deny that among the Bolsheviks there were many geeks. For example, it would be impossible for me to live on the street for them. ebna, and if they called street. them. hunchback, I would have moved right away. In the end, the people will choose one on a mental or more subtle level.

    As far as I remember, only one street was changed in Stavropol. There was a street of the Comintern, it became Marshal Zhukov. Everything else remained as it was. It's just that on the same Karl Marx Avenue there is General Yermolov Boulevard. At the beginning of the avenue there is a monument to Governor Nikolay Nikiforaki, who did a lot for the development of the city and the province, and at the end of the avenue, on the city hall, there is a plaque with the old name - "Nikolaevsky Avenue". Everything is needed in moderation ...

    That's it. For me and millions of others, he went down in history under the party pseudonym Volodarsky, and not Moses Holstein. You take and conduct a sociological survey.
    Interview 100 people on the street, asking them questions about who Moses Goldstein and Yeshua Movshevich are. And then ask the question, who is Volodarsky and Sverdlov. The answers will amaze you unpleasantly. The bulk of the people (95-98 percent) know exactly Volodarsky and Sverdlov. And they know them precisely by party pseudonyms.

    In this form - против. First of all, it’s not so interesting for residents to know what the real name and name of this or that politician or revolutionary is (and you seem to be partial to them).
    Well, what will change if you replace the nameplate of Volodarsky with the name Goldstein? People most often do not accept such renaming, and as they called the street, they will call it Volodarsky.

    Secondly, many streets before the revolution were far from the most euphonious names and I don’t think that the process of returning historical names will accelerate sharply and will cause satisfaction among the population. Instead of st. R. Luxemburg to live on Kladbischenskaya street, or on Gryaznaya street, and instead of Volodarsky street to live on Gendarmskaya - the population will not be delighted. Toponymy should be treated with caution, otherwise you can even bring the matter to the point of absurdity. You want the old name to be - the easiest way to hang up a couple of names. Pre-revolutionary and current ...

          - Wow! On the plans of 1910 of the year there was still no square ... the street passing through these places was called the Hanseatic Ring ...

      Interview a person on 100 Street asking them who are Moses Goldstein and Yeshua Movshevich. And then ask the question, who is Volodarsky and Sverdlov. The answers will hit you unpleasantly

      What kind of people are you responsible for ?. Has someone authorized you? The answer, I think, is precisely YOU that will strike you unpleasantly — no one already knows Volodarsky or Goldstein — and well.
      Pseudonym (Greek ψευδής - false + όνομα - name), i.e. are you for a FALSE? Bravo! By the way, a certain Lenin official documents were signed by Ulyanov

      In 1, it’s not so interesting for residents to know what the real name and surname of this or that politician or revolutionary are

      What is the habit of being responsible for everyone? You are not interested, but to me very much, and people will be very surprised. And they will quickly rename the streets as they were called historically-VASILIEVSKAYA — a remarkably beautiful name, not like Goldstein-Volodarsky

    I answer, if only because a few years ago, when the last time the renaming took place, a public opinion poll was conducted in the city. And among several questions, there was about the one I wrote about. Real last name and pseudonym. Of course, they didn’t take such famous ones as Lenin, Stalin. So here. Almost everyone - do not care what their names were. The vast majority were either opposed or indifferent to the return of historical names to the streets.
    What interests you - I do not argue. But your interest should not be elevated to the ultimate truth. People (for the most part) know Gorky, but not Peshkov, the same Kirov, and not Kostrikov. Etc. And to replace the name of the streets bearing the names of revolutionaries (as an example - R. Luxemburg) - by no means burn. Even those who spoke for returning, having learned that before the revolution, part of the street was called Gryaznaya, and part of the Cemetery was no longer burning with desire.

    Why not, if they entered HISTORY under this name? For some, the party pseudonym became a surname, for others it did not take root. The same Litvinov and Molotov are known to us mainly under pseudonyms, Chicherin, on the contrary, went down in history under his last name, and the pseudonym "did not stick" to him. Here at VO you only hear: "... Stalin, Stalin." It was Stalin, not Dzhugashvili. What, these people can be accused of being a LIE? Maybe you shouldn't once again rush to extremes and rename everything and everyone, instead of well-known surnames (albeit pseudonyms), put them from real ones, which few people are interested in.

    And about Volodarsky street. Maybe somewhere she had the beautiful name Vasilyevskaya. And somewhere, like ours, the Gendarme.
    I repeat again. Urban place names must be treated very carefully. And the less renaming, the better. At least not worse. Would you like to know the old names - please double signs. How to do in many cities

      About the survey, I do not believe, about the indifference and objection of people, yes. Because this is an extra hassle, but the question just needs to be asked correctly: "What name of the street do you prefer - Goldstein, Volodarsky or Vasilievskaya St.?" (not mentioning the possibility of renaming). The answer, I think, is obvious.

      Not all and all-Soviet newly built streets (I think there are very few of them in Rylsk) should be left as they are, and stolen names should be returned. What famous surnames, what are you talking about ?! Who remembers who are Sverdlov, Volodarsky, etc.? We have the same Soviet names did not take root for a very long time, all these dull streets. Lenin, Dzerzhinsky and so forth. I remember very wellLancaster, Irinopolskaya, Aleksandrovskaya, Well, Castle, Garden and so forth, and used these names because it is juicy and beautiful!

    You need to rename it wisely, otherwise it can turn out like the movie "Don't play the fool" with the renaming of the village "Red Sickle" in "Mindyukino" to that the local initiator answered "a fool"
