On 25 January 2024, the employees of the Museum of Bulgarian Civilization T.G. Zarifullina, T.P. Kamayeva and V.A. Salnikova held an information and educational event on “We remember and honor your feat, Leningrad”, dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the lifting of the siege of Leningrad. The event was conducted for 22 pupils of the 8th grade of Bolgar secondary school No. 1.
27 January 1944 is the date of the complete lifting of the Nazi blockade of Leningrad. On 8 September 1941, Leningrad was completely blocked from the land by German troops. The blockade of Leningrad began, which lasted nearly 900 days – it was almost three years of torment, hunger, cold, bombing, shelling and death. All its inhabitants rose to the defense of their native city. Seeking to flatten the city, the fascists rained 150 thousand heavy shells, 5 thousand high-explosive bombs and more than 100 thousand incendiary bombs on it during the siege. Over 640 thousand Leningraders died of hunger, but the city did not surrender to the enemy. On 13 January 1943, the enemy ring was broken through, but the final liberation came only a year later. In honor of the won battle on January 27, 1944, 24 salutes were fired over the Neva River. On this day in 1944, Soviet troops liberated the city of Leningrad from the blockade.
The children learnt about one of the heroic pages of our country’s history – the events of the Siege of Leningrad and the exploits of their peers. The schoolchildren actively participated in the conversation on the Great Patriotic War, read poems by Olga Bergholts, a Leningrad poet and blockade survivor, tragic pages of Tanya Savicheva’s diary, honored the memory of the victims with a minute of silence. They watched the documentary film “900 Days of Courage” with interest, feeling of compassion, empathy and pride for the steadfastness of their people. In memory of those who died during the Great Patriotic War, a candle of remembrance was lit, which burned throughout the event.
