No, probably, a family where the war would not affect the lives of people. During the Great Patriotic War, about twenty-seven million people died in the country. The war left a deep wound in everyone’s soul. And those people who have gone through the harsh trials of war, through hell and hell, will remember these terrible one thousand four hundred and eighteen days that have turned the whole world over. Many people died over the years. Someone fell on the battlefield, someone was brutally tortured in the Gestapo and concentration camps, someone was burned in the fire, for example, as in the village of Khatyn in the Minsk region, where the Nazis burnt this small village together with its inhabitants.
The Germans tried to seize power. But they did not have long to rule. The ninth of May is the day when people defeated fascism. And this day will always be a holiday. The Victory Day is forever inscribed in the history of mankind in gold letters. The Great Patriotic War left a deep trace in the soul of every writer. Many of them were themselves participants in the war. A lot of interesting works of contemporary writers are written about the war. This is “In the trenches of Stalingrad,” Viktor Nekrasov, “It’s us, Lord!” and “Killed under Moscow” Konstantin Vorobyov, “Badge of Trouble”, “Sotnikov” and “Career” Vasily Bykov, “The lists did not appear” and “A dawn here are quiet.”
For example, in the story “Killed near Moscow,” Konstantin Vorobyov told the reader how the Kremlin cadets, who had just finished college, were killed in the first battle. The Soviet government did not take care of the soldiers to have a good weapon, so that there was more to fight than. And as a result, young boys were thrown to the mercy of fate. They turned out to be of no use to anyone. They were given an order. And they must at all costs fulfill it. Often for such soldiers this battle was the first and last. This was shown in his work by Konstantin Vorobyov. The writer Vasily Bykov in his works does not try to show a person as a hero. In the story “Sotnikov” he depicted two main images.
The image of Sotnikov and Fisher. Bykov does not show Sotnikov as a hero, but as a traitor for Rybak. Although the first should be given credit. Sotnikov, despite his young years, goes to death with his head held high. The way of the Fisherman to betrayal Bykov traces step by step. The writer showed how a war can break a healthy and strong person, break it morally and physically. The war broke Rybak and led him to betrayal. There are writers who in their works glorified the exploits of Soviet soldiers, underground fighters, partisans. For example, in the book “The Dawns Here Are Quiet”, Boris Vasiliev told about the fate of five young girls who died in battle.
They went to the task and did not return. The writer describes in detail how the girls died. The girls did not quail, they did not leave the battlefield. They stood and died and died like heroes. The Great Patriotic War concerns the people of the older generation. The younger generation passed through the trials of the Afghan war. It killed about fifty thousand young guys. Our government did not think that the war in Afghanistan is meaningless, that it was not necessary to tear off sons from mothers and throw them into the very heat of war.
Many works are also dedicated to the Afghan theme. Modern poets also addressed this topic. Yevgeny Yevtushenko has a good poem called “Afghan ant”. This poem tells how the people of Afghanistan were dissatisfied with the fact that the Soviet troops came to their land. A Russian guy is lying on Afghan soil. The Muslim ant creeps along the cheekbone. It’s very difficult to crawl. The dead man is too unshaven. And the ant quietly says to him: “You do not know where exactly you died from wounds.” You only know one thing – somewhere near Iran.
Why did you come to us with weapons, This is the first time you heard the word “Islam”? What will you give to our homeland – poor, barefoot, if in your own – queue for sausage? Is it not a little killed to you, to again add to the twenty million? There is also an essay on the Afghan theme. This “Zinc Boys” Svetlana Alexievich. The military theme is the most common in modern literature. The memory of the heroism of Soviet people will live in the hearts of people and in the pages of works.
