The years of the Great Patriotic War are years of hard trials for our country. The Great Patriotic War left a lot of scars in the souls of people, both passed through it, and those born after. There is no family that does not lose a husband, brother, son. How many feats in this war? It’s hardly possible to measure this, there are no words in the world that could be appreciated. How can you describe, measure the feat of a woman who fought with men, girls and boys, dying in the name of victory, for the sake of a future life? And now how many veterans can not sleep at night, remembering the war years, re-losing their friends, relatives, relatives.
In literature, the theme of the Great Patriotic War is one of the most common themes. Many writers turned to her more than once. Bondarev, Nekrasov, Vasiliev, Bykov Simonov and many other writers about the Great Patriotic War, so that we, for the sake of which truly heroic deeds were accomplished, will never forget this war.
Y. Bondarev’s novel “Hot Snow” is shown a small episode, part of the Battle of Stalingrad. He describes a group of people of different characters, with different lives before the war. And the actions of these people, placed in extreme, inhuman conditions, are just as different in an extreme situation as they are themselves. But all these people (from Drozdovsky’s battalion commander to lieutenant Kuznetsov, Zoe’s nurse, a simple soldier) are a simple fighting unit, a cog in a car that performs its small but irreplaceable role. Throughout his work the author claims that all the miscalculations of the top management of the soldiers closed their heroism, their bodies, in this war. Let’s remember how the people of Lieutenant Kuznetsov bitten into the frozen earth, without the necessary equipment, and then, tired, exhausted, heroically repulsed the tank attack. Unless you read these lines, can one ever forget about the enormity and heroism of this war? Is it possible to want to fight again?
The same theme is also touched upon in the work of Nekrasov “In the trenches of Stalingrad.”
The author conducts the story on behalf of the main character Yuri Serzhentsov. The story touches on such moral issues as the question of the reasons why many people became traitors. The main thing in the story is the question that our people sometimes because of the irresponsible, even, we can say, criminal attitude of the authorities had to fight sometimes without food, without weapons and medicines. I wonder how it was possible not to fight something, but even just to survive in such conditions.
In all the works about war we see feats, we see the deaths of the noblest, honest people. They gave their lives for us, for us to live. What a tremendous responsibility lies on each of us before them. Why was he, a clean, beautiful soul, had to give his life to live a scoundrel, a rascal, a hooligan, a thief, a murderer? It is not right! Eternal memory and gratitude to the fallen are not only flowers on graves, beautiful speeches on holidays in their honor, it is first of all the desire of each of us to become better, and consequently, and the world will become better and purer.
I think that the purpose of literature, that the significance of works about the Great Patriotic War, that the result of our memory of the fallen and alive in these years is the desire of every person to be worthy of those feats and not to repeat the same terrible events as the war. If our politicians had studied the literature and history well in school, then I’m sure our boys would not die in Chechnya, there would be no Afghanistan, no atomic weapons, there would never be any wars.
