Literary Evening «Victory Day – the Greatest Holiday»

On May 10, 2017 the Vitebsk Regional Library hosted a literary evening «Victory Day – the Greatest Holiday». The event was arranged in cooperation with the public association «The Union of Writers of Belarus».

Victory Day is the Greatest Holiday for all citizens of Belarus, the country that lost one-third of its population during the years of the Great Patriotic War. Young people and elders came to the Regional Library to pay their respects to the home front workers and soldiers who had contributed to Day of Victory, had survived the horrors of the war and won it, who had brought peace and liberty.

The life of the family of Tamara Krasnova-Gusachenko, the Chairman of the Regional Office of the Union of Writers of Belarus for Vitebsk, is tightly connected with Belarus. Her father had fought in Belarus, and her uncle Andrian Rudakov had found his death on the Buinichy Field near Mogilev. Not so long ago, the family had learned about the fate of their other uncle – Boris Tsikin – whose body had been buried in a common grave on the Place of Fallen Soldiers in Myory. Seventy-two years have passed since the declaration of Victory Day, but memories about the war are still with us. Every family has its own tragic history of that conflict. The importance of those memories was stressed in Tamara Krasnova-Gusachenko's speech, who urged to keep them in order to preserve peace. Poet Nikolay Namestnikov, the Head of the Section of Poetry at the Regional Office of the Union of Writers of Belarus for Vitebsk, read fragments from his notes about the Great Patriotic War that he had taken during his tour across Vitebsk Region. Novelist Vladimir Kraynev recalled fragments from his books that were focused on the hostilities.

The employees of the library Larisa Rogacheva, Alyona Yephimova and Anna Galimskaya read verses about the war written by Oleg Saltuk, Nina Davydenko, and Boris Belezhenko. The musical performance by students of Vitebsk State Musical College named after I. Sollertinsky added to the overall quality of the evening.
