Peter Senerchia (October 11, 1967) is a retired American professional wrestler and color commentator best known by his ring name Tazz, originally Tazmaniac and later shortened to simply Taz.
He is known for his tenure in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), where he was a two time World Heavyweight Champion, a two time World Television Champion, a three time World Tag Team Champion, and a two time (and the first ever) FTW Heavyweight Champion. His World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) career as an in-ring performer came to an early halt in 2002 when mounting injuries forced him to retire and become a color commentator, which he continued to do until his contract with WWE expired in April 2009. Two months later, Senerchia debuted in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) at their Victory Road pay-per-view under the ring name Taz, originally as the manager of Samoa Joe, but eventually reprised his role as a color commentator alongside Mike Tenay, for TNA’s broadcasts, replacing Don West.
Professional wrestling career
Debut and early years (1987–1993)
Senerchia began wrestling in World Wrestling Council and made his professional wrestling debut on June 3, 1987 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, after being trained by Johnny Rodz. He wrestled as Kid Krush before moving on to the name Tazmaniac, which he would use variations of for the rest of his career. In the early 1990s, as The Tazmaniac, he wrestled for International World Class Championship Wrestling and held its Light Heavyweight Championship for six months in 1991. He would follow Tony Rumble in leaving IWCCW to join the newly established Century Wrestling Alliance. He would also tour in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Eastern / Extreme Championship Wrestling (1993–1999)
Debut and injury (1993–1995)
In October 1993, he and Joe Chetti (brother of Chris Chetti) debuted in the Philadelphia-based Eastern Championship Wrestling (ECW), just prior to its name change to Extreme Championship Wrestling, as the tag team The Tazmaniacs. When that team broke up, he was put into another team with Kevin Sullivan, with whom he won the Tag Team Championship twice. During his second reign as Tag Team Champion with Sullivan, The Tazmaniac became a double champion when he also won the Television Championship for one night in March 1994. For most of the rest of the year he floated around the tag ranks, teaming with different partners. He held the title once more, this time with Sabu, until Sabu was legitimately fired by ECW owner Paul Heyman for no-showing an event in favor of appearing at another event in Japan.
Tazmaniac was put out of action by a legitimate injury for much of 1995. During a tag team match 2 Cold Scorpio and Dean Malenko delivered a spike piledriver to him, and though he knew it was about to be performed, he did not have time to properly protect himself. As he explained on the DVD documentary The Rise and Fall of ECW, “I landed right on my forehead and just jacked my whole neck back and that was it.” The neck injury was so bad that, according to Tommy Dreamer, hospital staff couldn’t believe he’d walked into the hospital where he sought help after the match. Though he was unable to wrestle, Paul Heyman continued to pay him per their oral agreement, forging a loyalty between the men.
Return from injury and championship reigns (1995–1999)
Following his neck injury, Taz made appearances with The Steiner Brothers, even standing in their corner during matches with The Eliminators and getting physical with Jason. It was at the 1995 November to Remember, when Taz turned heel and joined up with referee Bill Alfonso. Working as the special referee for Alfonso’s match with ECW commissioner Tod Gordon, Taz refused to count to three and assaulted Gordon, then making the count for Alfonso. In his post-match promo, he claimed that no one was looking after him while he was injured and that no one cared (though Heyman was still paying him, the kayfabe story was that he had been forgotten and that Alfonso was the one helping him keep food on his family’s table). He was also angry that Sabu was brought back in that very night.
Taz returned to the ring On December 19, 1995 at Holiday Hell with a new look and wrestling style. The new character had him clad in a black/orange singlet and exhibiting a more physically intense in-ring style, focusing his offense on mat wrestling and suplexes, which announcer Joey Styles dubbed Taz-Plexes, earning him the nickname “The Human Suplex Machine”. He also debuted his Tazzmission finishing maneuver, causing opponents to tap out to signal their submission as in mixed martial arts instead of nodding their head or vocally saying “yes”. This quirk was soon picked up by other companies throughout the country. Heading into the summer, Taz began feuding with Tommy Dreamer, joining up with Brian Lee to face Dreamer and Terry Gordy and later Dreamer and “Dr. Death” Steve Williams. Taz also developed a friendship with The Eliminators, based on mutual respect, and they occasionally involved themselves in his matches. Perry Saturn and Taz were both trainers at ECW’s House of Hardcore wrestling school. For a while, some of the students, including Mako and Chris Chetti, would accompany Taz and Alfonso to the ring as a faction known as Team Taz.
At November to Remember, things seemed to come full circle, as Taz stormed to the ring and interrupted Styles and “stole Paul E.’s thunder” by announcing that there would be a “big show in the first quarter of the new year”, basically telling the fans in attendance that ECW’s first pay-per-view was on the horizon. At that “big show”, he guaranteed that Sabu would finally face him. Later that night, he came out to force Scorpio to leave the ring and went on an angry tirade, abusing Bob Artese and holding him hostage in the ring. Several officials and wrestlers came out and Taz eventually got his hands on Paul E. The lights went out and when they came back on, Sabu was in the ring, across from Taz. This was the first time they had been in the ring together since early 1995. Before they could lock up, the lights went out again.
During Sabu’s match, where he teamed with Rob Van Dam to face The Eliminators and The Gangstas in a three-way dance, Taz attempted to attack his former partner, but Van Dam saved Sabu and was choked out in the aisle. This distraction caused Sabu to get hit with Total Elimination and his team lost. Taz also began a mini-feud with Rob Van Dam, dominating him in every match and was also out for a short time to get surgery on his injured shoulder. As 1996 ended and 1997 began, Taz and Sabu continued to try getting at one another, with no actual contact.
Early in 1997, the antagonism between Sabu and Taz was growing, as Taz attacked Sabu’s partner, Rob Van Dam, costing the team matches with The Eliminators and other teams. In the months leading to ECW’s first pay-per-view, Taz would choke out low-level wrestlers with the Tazzmission due to viewing his matches as secondary to his rivalry with Sabu. He then dominated another series of matches with Van Dam before meeting Sabu at Barely Legal, where Taz defeated him with the Tazmission, only to have his manager Bill Alfonso turn on him and join Sabu and his partner Rob Van Dam. In response, Taz began teaming with Chris Candido to face Sabu and Van Dam.
Two months later at Wrestlepalooza, Taz lost to Sabu in the rematch, marking his first loss since 1995. However, later in the night, he won the World Television Championship from Shane Douglas to begin his second reign. He defended the title against all comers, including Douglas, Lance Storm, John Kronus, Al Snow, Jerry Lynn and Chris Candido. His feud with Sabu would remain unsettled, after wrestling to a 30 min draw at Fright Night ’97. During this time Taz would continue his “take on all comers” mentality blatantly calling on anyone from the UFC, and notably calling out Vince McMahon to bring Ken Shamrock to face him. Throughout late 1997, Taz began feuding with The Triple Threat in addition to Sabu and Van Dam, where he sometimes teamed up with Tommy Dreamer for an uneasy alliance. At November to Remember after winning his match, he issued a challenge to World Heavyweight Champion Bam Bam Bigelow. The two would eventually meet, after Bigelow turned on Taz in a match against Shane Douglas and Chris Candido. Taz would ultimately lose the title to Bam Bam Bigelow at Living Dangerously on March 1, 1998.
After losing the World Television Championship, Taz was elevated into the World Heavyweight Championship picture. In May 1998, with Shane Douglas injured and unable to wrestle, Taz was given an old World Television Championship belt painted orange—his trademark color—and began cutting promos, declaring himself the FTW Heavyweight Champion. Though the championship was unsanctioned in storyline, it was defended at ECW shows until Douglas was healthy, at which time Taz defeated him for the World Heavyweight Title.
Just before winning the World Heavyweight Title, Taz “gave” the FTW Heavyweight Title to long-time foe Sabu in a match where he physically pulled Sabu on top of him to allow him to get the pin. Taz held the World Heavyweight Championship for nine months before he signed with the World Wrestling Federation, losing the title as the first man eliminated in a three-way dance at Anarchy Rulz. As he walked out of the ring, a large portion of the ECW locker room joined him on the entrance ramp to give him an emotional sendoff. After being off of ECW television for most of the fall, he wrestled one final match as an ECW performer at November to Remember, losing to Rob Van Dam via pinfall. In the DVD The Rise and Fall of ECW, Taz said that he sign with the WWE because he was in the top of the company and he lost his passion.
World Wrestling Federation / Entertainment (2000–2009)
Debut and The Alliance (2000–2002)
After being contacted by the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling in 1999, Taz debuted for the WWF, with the slightly modified ring name Tazz, at the 2000 Royal Rumble with a win over the previously undefeated Kurt Angle at the Madison Square Garden. Just a few months after Tazz arrived in the WWF, Mike Awesome, the man he had lost the ECW World Heavyweight Championship to at Anarchy Rulz, signed with World Championship Wrestling. Legal wrangling by Paul Heyman prevented Awesome from taking the title belt with him, and in a piece of bizarre wrestling history, ECW and WWF officials agreed to have Tazz, a WWF wrestler, make a surprise appearance at an ECW show to defeat Awesome, a WCW wrestler, for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. Tazz held the belt for ten days before losing it to Tommy Dreamer, during which time he wore it on various WWF shows, including an episode of SmackDown! where he lost to the WWF Champion Triple H, a booking decision Vince McMahon later expressed some regret about.
After losing the ECW World Heavyweight Title, Tazz was placed into contention for the Intercontinental Championship, but never won the title. In the summer, after taking time off for an arm injury, he was turned into a villainous character and placed into a feud with color commentator Jerry “The King” Lawler. The feud included matches at SummerSlam and Unforgiven, which they split. Tazz was only able to pick up the Unforgiven win when he received help from Raven, who had returned to the company. Afterwards, the duo formed a tag team that lasted until November.
When the Invasion angle began, Tazz acted as “the voice of the WCW/ECW Alliance”, sticking up for them and speaking on their behalf whenever possible. He eventually left the stable after the leader Stone Cold Steve Austin criticized his decision to stay on commentary rather than help ECW owner Stephanie McMahon.
Commentating and departure (2002–2009)
With injuries mounting, Tazz began performing part-time commentary on Sunday Night Heat in October 2000. He joined the SmackDown! team in February 2001 after Jerry “The King” Lawler quit the company, after calling his first pay-per-view on No Way Out with Jim Ross, as well as becoming one of the trainers for the joint WWF/MTV produced reality series Tough Enough. Lawler returned to the company on November 19, 2001 and resumed his place as commentator, with Tazz becoming both a wrestler and a commentator. In January 2002, he and Spike Dudley won the Tag Team Championship, holding it for over a month before losing it to Billy and Chuck.
When World Wrestling Entertainment split into two brands, Tazz was put on the SmackDown! brand, where he resumed his color commentator duties. Not long after he retired from the ring, he became a full-time broadcaster. He co-hosted SmackDown! for World Wrestling Entertainment until a third brand, ECW, was introduced in 2006, at which point he became the color commentator for that show. He was also the co-host, with Joey Styles, of History of Extreme Championship Wrestling on WWE 24/7 Classics, a show that re-airs archived episodes of the original ECW’s weekly television programs. Before and during episodes he and Styles provide insight into the storylines, inner workings, and general ambiance of ECW at the time—as they remember it.
In February 2006, Tazz and his SmackDown! broadcasting partner, Michael Cole, hosted a week long trial run of a show on Howard 101 on Sirius Satellite Radio, but the show was not picked up. He also hosted a talk show on 92.3 Free FM at sporadic intervals between late summer 2006 and early 2007, but it was not picked up and the station changed formats, replacing all post morning programming with music. On June 11, 2006, Tazz wrestled his final match to date, defeating Jerry Lawler at ECW One Night Stand.
During the recording of the April 29, 2008 episode of ECW, Tazz’s broadcast partner Mike Adamle abruptly walked off set prior to the main event. Moments later, after reading the promo for the upcoming pay-per-view, Tazz walked out as well, leaving the main event with no commentators. On December 13, 2010, Tazz joined Right After Wrestling and said that it pisses him off when companies try to re-create the original ECW. He stated that the original ECW worked because “It was that era, that group of people, that leader in Paul Heyman. We were that little engine that could.”
In August 2008, Tazz filled in for Mick Foley as a color commentator on the SmackDown brand, while Raw wrestler Matt Striker filled in for Tazz on the ECW brand. When Foley left the company, Tazz became the permanent color commentator for the SmackDown brand once again. On April 3, 2009, Tazz left WWE when his contract expired. His WWE.com profile was moved from the active SmackDown roster list to the alumni list for a short time, before being completely removed, confirming his departure from the company.
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (2009–2015)
At Victory Road, Senercia, under his Taz ring name, made his official debut during Samoa Joe’s match against Sting, revealing himself to be Joe’s on-screen adviser and consequently a heel as well as an ally of the Main Event Mafia. The match ending was booked as Taz’s presence enabling Joe to recover from Sting’s Scorpion Deathlock and win the match via submission after applying the Coquina Clutch.
On the August 20, 2009 episode of Impact!, Taz replaced Don West as the promotion’s color commentator and also became a face upon stating that he was only loosely associated with the Mafia and that he had taught Joe everything he knew and that it was now up to Joe to use his newfound skills. In May 2012, Taz began appearing as a judge in the monthly Gut Check segment on Impact Wrestling.
On the January 17, 2013 episode of Impact Wrestling, Taz was a groomsman at the wedding between Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan. As Ray and Brooke exchanged their vows, Taz interrupted the ceremony and proclaimed himself to be a member of Aces & Eights after revealing a kutte underneath his coat, turning heel again in the process. Following his revelation, Aces & Eights ambushed the ceremony and attacked Ray, his groomsmen Tommy Dreamer and Brother Runt and Brooke’s father Hulk. The following week on Impact Wrestling, Taz revealed that he joined Aces & Eights because of his desire to be a member of a group that adheres to a higher power. On the November 21 episode of Impact Wrestling, Aces & Eights was forced to disband after Bully Ray lost to Mr. Anderson, which also saw Anderson retain his career in TNA. On April 15, 2015 it was announced that TNA Wrestling and Taz have mutually parted ways.
All Elite Wrestling (2019–present)
After being a guest commentator for various All Elite Wrestling (AEW) events in 2019 and 2020, Taz officially signed with the promotion on January 15, 2020.
Senerchia and his wife Theresa have a son named Tyler. He has a tattoo of the Looney Tunes Tasmanian Devil on his upper left biceps accompanied by the legend TAZ. His action figure produced by Jakks Pacific does not include the character, but does include the name. He has a self designed tattoo on his left lower biceps. Senerchia played high school football. Senerchia also studied judo prior to entering the professional wrestling circuit. He is a fan of the New York Mets, New York Knicks, and the New York Jets.

Fireside Chat With Pro Wrestler and Spike TV Personality, Taz
How about that?
We absolutely love it when people spread the good word that is LaxAllStars, and what we are about, so tweets like the one above are always appreciated, and truly brighten our already blinding days. However, it isn’t often that we get tweets and mentions from a Pro Wrestler and Spike TV personality, so we decided to look into it a little more. We soon found out that Taz was actually quite the lacrosse fan, so it only made sense that we would want to interview the guy!
You don’t say?
LAS: We don’t usually (or ever) get mentioned in tweets from pro wrestlers who love lacrosse. Would you mind telling us a little about yourself and your connection to the game?
Taz: I tweeted about you guys because I’m a Lax Dad/Lax Fan, and I just wanted to help spread the word about the great game of lacrosse!
I have been in the Pro Wrestling industry for 24 years. The most notable companies I’ve spent my career with were the ECW, WWE and currently TNA. I was a wrestler for most of my career, but while in the WWE I morphed into a Color Commentator due to injuries. For the past 3 years I have worked for TNA Wrestling on Spike TV as a Color Commentator. As a kid, I was a product of the NYC school system and when I was in High School in the mid-80’s we never had lacrosse at any of the NYC schools. Therefore, I never had the opportunity of playing the game and ended up playing football in H.S. & College (CW Post).
The connection to LAX came through my son. He’s been playing lacrosse for the past few years and loves the game, so as soon as he picked up a stick for the first time, I embraced the game as well! We live on Long Island, so as you know we have a rich tradition for the game here and the club my son plays for (Long Island Express) basically works year round, so it’s perfect for him.
(Editor’s Note: In case you haven’t heard of the Long Island Express, that is the same organization that Billy Bitter (UNC/Denver Outlaws), Tom Schreiber (Princeton), Ryan Young (Maryland), and Mike Chanenchuk (just transferred to Maryland) all played for; The Tenacious Turtles, who just won the Dick’s Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions, also operate under the LI Express umbrella. Also, when Taz was in HS in NYC, we are only aware of two high schools that actually had lacrosse: Midwood and Jamaica.)
Had lacrosse been available to you as a kid, do you think you would have played? If so, what position?
Taz: Oh, absolutely I would’ve played! And I would’ve played Defense. I feel like my disposition fits the mindset of a D’man. I see a lot of the fire and motor I had as a wrestler in my son. As a matter of fact, MLL Star Defensmen Nicky Polanco is a very close friend of mine, and as I stated earlier my kid plays Defense, so him getting advice from a player (and person) like Nick has really helped accelerate his learning curve. Needless to say, I would’ve had Nicky train me to become a very nasty D’man!
Close friends with Nicky Polanco? Talk about jealous. I hear he dabbles in wrestling as well. Who would win if you and Polanco got in the ring together?
Taz: Nick trains in more of an MMA style grappling and he is a workhorse! I’m several years older than Nicky and I’m retired from in ring competition, not to mention I’m also beat up! So, now that all of my excuses are out of the way, I would say Nick would have a slight edge! BUT, if I was in my prime, #41 would’t last long with yours truly! That would be like me playing attack vs. Nicky, and I attempt to go to the cage… he would eat me up!!
MMA worked for Polanco.
Speaking of playing the game, do you ever play? Any chance we might see you playing in some pick-up games in the future?
Taz: Speaking on behalf of my knees, neck, bicep tears, shattered elbows and torn triceps….NO! An emphatic NO! I’m banged up, bro!!
Would you mind telling us a little about your son? Growing up in a hot bed, playing for the LI Express, and getting tips of the trade from Polanco… it sounds like he is becoming quite the lacrosse player!
Taz: My son, Tyler, is in Middle School, and he is doing very well both academically and athletically. He has a strong work ethic and his Express team plays at a high level; most of the other clubs they play are great teams. You only get better by being around BETTER people! On Long Island we have so much young talent, it just makes all these kids excel.
I will tell you how I feel about all youth athletes though; the most CONSISTENT thing about ANY youth athlete is that they are INCONSISTENT! That includes my son, he is still learning and working on getting better and better. But, he also plays the game very fast and his lacrosse IQ is strong. He has also been lucky thus far to be exposed to great coaching for the past several years. Tyler was introduced to the game of lacrosse by Mike Chanenchuk Sr., and he was the first person to put a lacrosse stick in my son’s hands. Currently, Ty is doing a lot defensive training with Coach John Lynott and other Express coaches so it’s going great and the kid is having a blast!
Ty ready to bring the ruckus!
With you being heavily involved in wrestling, did your son pick up that gene too, or is he strictly lacrosse?
Taz: Yup, Ty was heavily involved with Youth MMA and Wrestling, and from about the time he was five years old he was on a mat grappling. In my home gym I have a mat so I have been rolling around with him since he was around two or three. But lately, he has kind of leaned more towards football and lacrosse, so the past few years he hasn’t wrestled. The Middle School wrestling coach really wanted him to wrestle for the school but he wanted to focus on speed training and lax training during the off season. Once he gets to High School I would rather him not wrestle, but my wife and I leave that stuff up to him.
Athletes today are looking for all sorts of new and challenging workouts to supplement their traditional ones during the off-season. What makes wrestling such an attractive outlet to use for lacrosse players at any position?
Taz: Cardio, cardio, and more cardio! Nothing better than any type of grappling or wrestling to get better endurance. Also, it will keep any excess pounds off you due to the fact you will be burning a ton of calories. It’s the physicality of wrestling that can translate to lacrosse. Let’s say there is a scrum for a groundball or especially on the all-important face off! I believe there are many face off guys who are good amateur wrestlers.
Funny things is though, our World Champion in TNA is Bobby Roode. Bobby is from the Toronto area and played LAX in high school and was teammates with John Grant Jr. and also played with Tracy Kelusky of the Buffalo Bandits in the NLL.
Taz in TNA
Being in the Pro Wrestling industry for 24 years has probably taught you a thing or two about getting noticed and making it big at the next level. Given your background in media, do you see lacrosse becoming a major sport in America in the near future?
Taz: Yes I do! The game is growing in rapid fashion on the youth level! There is definitely more growth on big time networks in regards to NCAA Lacrosse. It’s just a matter of time until the fastest game on two feet is mainstream. The sport is spreading nationwide also, areas like Coronado (CA), Denver, Texas, Florida, Georgia are all building the growth of lacrosse. But to me, the hotbeds of the sport remain the Northeast… from MD to PA to CT to Upstate NY and especially (in my opinion) Long Island.
Now that you’ve hung up your Championship belt, you run the Team Taz Finishing Camp, which is all about passing on your knowledge to fellow wrestlers trying to reach the next level (‘growing the game’ at its finest). Why is giving back to the industry in this way such an important part of any sport?
Taz: That’s how any sport or business grows and succeeds! Pass on knowledge and experience to those younger than us. Just like when I was coming up as a wrestler, I was fortunate enough to have people wiser than me from my business HELP me! Men like Kevin Sullivan & Paul Heyman were very influential in my career early on. Same with GOOD coaching for Middle School or High School laxers!
Taz doing his part to ‘GTG’ in the wrestling world.
Any chance you could give us a prediction for the winners of the 2012 MLL Championship game or NCAA Championship game?
Taz: Sure, but lots of players moved around during this MLL off season. Hard to tell how any team looks right now but I think Charlotte is gonna be legit right away, Cannons, Outlaws and my Lizards (even though half the team is GONE! Jeez!).
For the NCAA, it’s going to be a DOGFIGHT! There are so many great programs and to top it off I know many players currently playing for some of these programs. Players from U of Maryland, Princeton, and Hopkins that help train with my son (and his team) that I don’t want to make mad! But I feel the 4 teams in the end will be, in no particular order: Duke, Cornell, Virginia, and Syracuse with Maryland as an honorable mention.
And last but certainly not least, what’s your favorite part about the Lacrosse All Stars website?
Taz: Overall, just the insight and passion for lacrosse that your website displays! My kid informed me about your site and twitter page a while ago. We also love all the gear someone can checkout on there also!

Taz To Exit CBS Sports Radio
Sunday Night Football on NBC will feature the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing off against the New England Patriots. For a viewer who is not heavily invested in the National Football League, nothing significant may be able to be surmised from just looking at the matchup. For NFL fans, casual or die-hard, this game is perhaps the most substantial of the season.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback and seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady will return to Foxborough to face his former team, the New England Patriots, where he won his first six championships. New details have recently emerged divulging the split between Brady and Patriots Head Coach and General Manager Bill Belichick, and should make the matchup even more interesting this Sunday night, further boosting its potential to shatter previous ratings records.
On Wednesday morning, “Keyshawn, JWill and Max” spoke on ESPN Radio about the primetime game, and how there should be plenty of content for the media to chronicle to attract and captivate viewers, especially after the game when the hall-of-fame duo meet at midfield to exchange pleasantries.
“Bill’s going to do what Bill does,” said Keyshawn Johnson, former NFL wide receiver and co-host of the newly restructured morning program on ESPN Radio. “[He’s] not going to give the media any opportunity for any major photo ops with him hugging Tom Brady.”
Viewership for Sunday Night Football on NBC has been on the rise this season, with the broadcast drawing an average of over 20-million viewers per week across its multiple platforms over the first three weeks of the NFL season, the first time the network has attained such a feat since 2016. This Sunday’s matchup though, thanks to the storylines and drama surrounding it, could eclipse those ratings… and considerably do so.
Just take the game trailer created by NBC, using “Hello” by Adele, a slow pop ballad to promote a football game. Uncharacteristic for sure, but appropriate based on the circumstances of this matchup. And it’s drawing viewers — nearly one million of them on Twitter in just two days.
The morning radio show welcomed former Major League Baseball player and current MLB Network analyst Mark DeRosa on the program to talk about the postseason set to commence next week, but even he could not resist commenting on the highly-anticipated matchup coming up at the end of the week.
“I watched that Sunday Night Football trailer with Adele’s ‘Hello’ track underneath it about thirty times yesterday,” said DeRosa. “I cannot wait.”
Former New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson also joined the show to talk about the upcoming Brady vs. Belichick matchup, and echoed DeRosa’s sentiments regarding the trailer created by NBC.
“You got to hype it up,” said Watson. “You got to get people watching. That’s part of the deal.”
The wrestling industry has no… – Wrestling’s Glory Days
HULK HOGAN IN JAPAN
To the followers of Wrestling’s Glory Days, my name is Ron and I used to regularly contribute to this page, having joined the team in 2013 and contributing for a few years. As life demands I wasn’t able to continue on a regular basis and ‘threw in the towel’ on writing so to speak.
David, who has been a long time Admin on the page contacted me recently and asked if I would write a guest piece; which I was happy to oblige. As the title suggests this piece is about Hulk Hogan and more specifically his time wrestling in Japan.
Hulk Hogan’s connection to Japan goes all the way back to when he began his pro wrestling training in 1976 after being referred by Jack and Gerry Brisco to Hiro Matsuda. Matsuda was a Japanese star who held titles in many promotions including New Japan Pro Wrestling, NWA, CWF and GCW to name a few. As is now well known, Matsuda intentionally broke Hogan’s leg on his first day of training, to see if he would come back and keep training. Well Hogan did come back to train and the rest as they say, is history.
Hogan spent his first few years travelling the United States, including his first stint in the WWF before heading to Japan to wrestle for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
In May 1980, Hogan debuted for New Japan and would have a number of matches that year against the likes of Antonio Inoki, Seiji Sakaguchi, Tatsumi Fujinami, Riki Choshu, Tiger Jeet Singh and Kengo Kimura. Hogan would also team with Stan Hansen and Bad News Allen in a number of tag team matches taking on the promotion’s top stars. It should also be noted that Hogan fought Andre the Giant to a double count out in December that year. Hogan was given the moniker ‘ichiban’ and was quickly established as a star in Japan.
In 1981 Hulk Hogan would challenge Bob Backlund in Nagoya, on a New Japan card for Backlund’s WWF Championship, Backlund retained the title after Hogan was disqualified. Hogan would also defeat Riki Choshu and would again briefly team with Stan Hansen.
In 1982, Hogan would wrestle the likes of Abdullah the Butcher and Andre the Giant and briefly team with rival Antonio Inoki, taking on the likes of Brutus Beefcake and Sgt Slaughter. Hogan would also team with Seiji Sakaguchi as well.
On the 2nd of June in 1983, Hogan would defeat Antonio Inoki at the ‘old’ Sumo Hall on a card that was stacked for its day, featuring the likes of Tiger Mask (Satoru Sayama), Killer Khan, Andre the Giant, Big John Studd, El Canek, Akira Maeda, Seiji Sakaguchi, Yoshiaki Fujiwara, Kazuo Yamazaki and a young Nobuhiko Takada. Hogan’s win over Inoki in the main event would come at the 21:27 mark in front of a reported 13,000 spectators. By virtue of this win Hogan became the first IWGP Champion. This title however was part of the IWGP league events that New Japan ran in the mid 80’s and its lineage does not connect with the IWGP Heavyweight Championship that was instituted in 1987 as many people have claimed over the year – this win of course cemented Hogan as a bonafide star in Japan.
Although there was no name for his fandom at the time, one could argue that ‘Hulkamania’ started in Japan.
It should be pointed out that by 1984, Hogan was as big a star in Japan, if not bigger than what he was in the United States – a point not lost on WWF promoter Vince McMahon Jr, who was looking to capitalise more on Hogan’s stardom in North America. One could even argue that ‘Hulkamania’ started in Japan.
In June 1984, Hogan and Inoki would square off in a rematch which would see Inoki win the match by count out – it is worth noting that Hogan was in his first run as WWF when he lost this non title match. Hogan defeated Inoki in May of 1984 as well. Hogan would also wrestle in a number of tag matches teaming with the likes of The Masked Superstar, Ken Patera, Big John Studd and ‘Iron’ Mike Sharpe, trading wins and losses against various New Japan talents. Hogan would also chalk up singles wins over Riki Choshu and Rusher Kimura as well.
In 1985 Hogan returned to Japan, for what would be his last run in the country for at least five years. Just like the previous year, Hogan would be involved in more marquee matches continuing his feud with Antonio Inoki and squaring off against Tatsumi Fujinami and King Kong Bundy in singles matches – he would also have a number of tag team matches teaming with the likes of Andre the Giant, Samu (of Headshrinker fame), Adrian Adonis, Dick Murdoch and Kerry Browne.
Like 1984, the tag matches in 1985 were a way of protecting Hogan by not having to do all the work in the ring and resting somewhat as he still had a full time schedule in North America as the WWF Champion.
In April 1990, following his loss to the Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania VI, Hogan would headline the US-Japan Wrestling Summit event in the Tokyo Dome, squaring off and defeating Stan Hansen in the main event. This event was a special event co-promoted by the WWF, New Japan Pro Wrestling and All-Japan Pro Wrestling.
In 1991, Hogan would return to Japan as part of the WWF’s relationship with the upstart SWS (Super World of Sports) promotion. In March Hogan would team with Genichiro Tenryu losing to the Road Warriors by count out in the main event of a Tokyo Dome show. In December Hogan would defeat Tenryu in the main event of a second Tokyo Dome show held in December. Hogan would successfully defend his WWF Championship against Yoshiaki Yatsu in Kobe in April.
Hulk Hogan would return to New Japan Pro Wrestling in 1993 where he was quoted for making controversial comments about the WWF Championship, stating that the WWF title was ‘toy’ or ‘trinket’ and that he wanted to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. In May at New Japan’s Wrestling Dontaku event at the Fukuoka Dome, Hogan would defeat The Great Muta in front of a reported near 55,000 spectators. In September Hogan would team with Masahiro Chono and The Great Muta to face off against Kensuke Sasaki and The Road Warriors going by the name of The Hell Raisers.
On January 4, 1994, Hogan who for the first time since 1983 was no longer under contract to any North American promotion wrestled Tatsumi Fujinami at the Tokyo Dome, Hogan would win the match in just over thirteen minutes.
In mid 1994 Hogan signed a lucrative multi year deal with World Championship Wrestling and although the promotion had a working agreement with New Japan, Hogan would not return to Japan until 2003.
In 2003, the landscape of New Japan Pro Wrestling had changed, with the rise of Mixed Martial Arts, Antonio Inoki felt the need to bring in fighters from other disciplines to have worked/shoot style matches – even partnering with K-1 in MMA fighters vs wrestler matches.
Initially this worked but in the end fans could see it for what it was and the promotions population continued to decline. Hulk Hogan was brought in to face Masahiro Chono in the fourth Tokyo Dome event the promotion staged that year called Ultimate Crush.
In the mid 1990’s the match would have been great but by 2003 both Hogan and Chono were well beyond their primes – Hogan would win this match on a card that was mostly made up of pro wrestlers vs mma fighter matches.
Following the match with Chono, as is custom in Japan, the wrestlers attend a ‘press conference’ style interview – on this occasion Jeff Jarrett turned up and attacked Hulk Hogan out of the blue, with a guitar shot to the head, seemingly setting up a match between the two on TNA, which never eventuated.
The match against Chono would be Hogan’s last match in Japan.
In July 2014, WWE held a house show in Osaka where Hogan made a guest appearance and hosted the public contract signing for KENTA who had just left Pro-Wrestling NOAH to sign with WWE.
To this writer’s knowledge Hogan hasn’t attended any wrestling related events in Japan since 2014.
On January 4, 2018 – New Japan Pro Wrestling held Wrestle Kingdom 12 at the Tokyo Dome featuring Chris Jericho taking on Kenny Omega, in what would be Jericho’s first match outside of WWE since he was still in WCW. The event was huge for the company and to add to that they contacted Hulk Hogan to see if he would make an appearance as part of the Bullet Club.
It was reported by Sports Illustrated that for one night only Hogan had asked for $750,000 USD so in the end New Japan withdrew its request.
Given his history in Japan it almost seems unfair that Hogan never had a ‘farewell’ match of sorts, but his legacy in the country is certainly Hall of Fame worthy, great matches, historic feuds and some controversial moments makes up the history of Hulk Hogan in Japan.

Taz Sherman to run it back in 2021-2022 season
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — One of the three West Virginia guards weighing professional options for next season has decided to return to the Mountaineers. Taz Sherman announced Tuesday afternoon that he will be using an additional season of eligibility at West Virginia for the 2021-2022 season.

Sherman entered the NBA Draft evaluation process shortly after the end of last season. Sean McNeil and Deuce McBride did the same and have yet to finalize their intentions.
“I was just trying to figure out what the best decision was for me and my family,” Sherman said on Citynet Statewide Sportsline. “Ultimately the decision came down to that and wherever the best opportunity may be, if it was to leave or come back.”
Sherman’s production increased from his first to second season in a WVU uniform. Two seasons ago, he averaged 5.3 points on 38.3 percent shooting. Last season, he averaged 13.6 points and shot nearly 43 percent.
“I improved from my first year here, but I don’t think I did enough to necessarily get drafted,” Sherman said.
Sherman’s decision to return immediately makes the Mountaineers a better offensive team and provides them with a steady veteran in the backcourt.
“We are thrilled to have Taz back for another season of Mountaineer basketball,” Huggins said. “He went from scoring five points a game in his first season with us to scoring more than 13 points per game last season. Taz explored his options in a professional manner, while finishing his bachelor’s degree in May. Taz is a leader on and off the court, and he will provide us with veteran leadership this season.”

— MetroNews (@WVMetroNews) June 1, 2021
Sherman scored in double figures in 21 of WVU’s 28 games last season. He was named to the All-Big 12 Honorable Mention team. Sherman was also second on the Mountaineer roster in made 3-point field goals (47) and free throw shooting percentage (87.3%).
“It was just comfortability and opportunity,” Sherman said. “We went to a more guard-oriented lineup to where our guards could be more free, have opportunity to put up more shots and that really tailored to me, Sean and Deuce’s game. Being able to get downhill more and do drive and kicks, we improved our three-point percentage vastly from our first year here together.”
Sherman, who said he’s currently at 188 pounds, will be looking to add weight.
“I can gain five to eight more pounds to be more in the area of a combo guard,” he said. “With my play style, posting up smaller players and playing that slower style, they want me to gain more weight.”
With Sherman taking advantage of an extra year of eligibility due to the pandemic, WVU will be able to go over the normal scholarship limit of 13 players. Forward Gabe Osabuohien previously announced he will return for a fifth season of eligibility. Forward Derek Culver announced he will be pursuing professional opportunities and will not return for his senior season.

90,000 Yezidi boys and girls in Armenia who do not finish school
Fourth grade schoolgirls, classmates (Gayane Mkrtchyan / OC Media)
In Yezidi villages in western Armenia, many girls and boys do not finish school. It is considered a “great tragedy” for girls to be unmarried by the age of 18, while for boys it is considered necessary to get started as soon as possible. But there are people who challenge community stereotypes to create conditions for future generations.
Ester Sadoyan and Asya Orudzhulyan are in the ninth grade.Esther is thinking of becoming a doctor, while Asya dreams of working in a beauty salon. But in Ferik, tradition trumps education.
“Our traditions get in the way of girls, they barely finish their studies until the ninth grade, and after that they get married. Many do this even earlier. We are a small nation, so we are in a hurry to get our daughters in marriage, ”Rustam Khasanyan tells OC Media.
Khasanyan teaches Kurdish language and Yezidi literature at a school in the village of Ferik. In the same village, he is the chairman. The village, where only Yezidis live, is located 35 kilometers from Yerevan, Armavir region.
Primary school named after the Yezidi writer Rzaliye Rashid Ozmanyan. Khasanyan says that after the end of the ninth grade, children should continue their studies in secondary school in a neighboring village. But this often does not happen.
There are 28 boys and 18 girls in the rural school. One of the girls in the ninth grade is no longer attending school. Due to tradition, she is considered a ready-to-wear bride.
Ferik school (Gayane Mkrtchyan / OC Media)
Ferik village school director Levon Poghosyan says he is well acquainted with the traditions of the Yezidi community.He says that 10-15 years ago, children could be married off at 15-16 years old. It is considered a tragedy if a Yazidi girl is not married by the age of 18.
“The education of Yezidi girls in Ferik is limited to the ninth grade. Often there are cases when, when getting married, many girls drop out of school, not having completed their studies, ”he says.
Last year, the Sinjar Yazidi National Union conducted a study on education. The results showed that in 2003–2015, 473 Yazidi girls were enrolled in various schools in the country.Of these, 117 girls did not even receive a nine-year education, 234 completed only the ninth grade, and 122 received a 12-year education.
Law against Tradition
School in Ferik (Gayane Mkrtchyan / OC Media)
One of the main obstacles to women’s education is early marriage. Like many other traditions, early marriage is a symbol of the preservation of the Yezidi ethnicity.
Orientalist Rustam Bakoyan is the head of the Shams organization, a Yezidi group working on education and poverty reduction.He says. : “Yezidis of Russia and Europe often come and choose daughters-in-law from the Yezidi community of Armenia. They are sure that a real Yazidi can only be found in this community, where Yazidi customs have been well guarded until now. This is one of the reasons for early marriage. ”
According to the last census of 2001, 40,620 Yezidis live in the country. 23 villages where Yezidis live compactly are located in the Aragatsotn region in western Armenia. Yezidis also live in the Armavir, Ararat, Shirak and Lori regions of Armenia in northern and western Armenia in mixed villages along with the Armenians.
65-year-old Tarlan Khasoyan lives 80 kilometers from Yerevan, in the village of Rya Taza, in the Aragatsotn region. She values the traditions of the Yezidis.
“The duty of our women is to get married, be a good wife, mother, take care of the family. If a man enters the house, the woman needs to get up, there is no need to sit at the same table with the man, there is no need to talk to her mother-in-law, ”she says.
Sona Aslo, 38, from the same village. She is the mother of four children. Together with their mother-in-law, they decided to engage their daughter at the age of 14.The groom “was from a good family,” and they did not want to lose such a chance for their daughter.
“This is our tradition. I also got married at 15. What should we do? The daughter listens to us, knows that we are right and so it is necessary. Why her studies? ”Sona Aslo says.
Not only girls are affected
Asya Orudzhulyan (Gayane Mkrtchyan / OC Media)
The problem of education in the Yezidi community is not limited to girls. Rustam Bakoyan claims that in Yezidi society, boys’ right to education is also violated.However, compared to girls, they at least graduate from the ninth grade.
“Look, we have a Yezidi community of 40,000. There are 40 students studying in higher educational institutions in Armenia, which means that 0.1 percent of our young people are getting higher education,” he says.
According to the expert, boys get married mostly at the age of 21 when they return from the army.
“Of course there are times when they get married even at the age of 16-17. The Armenians also had the problem of early marriages, but having a state, the Armenians began to develop very quickly.In our case, we are a more closed community and are afraid of assimilation, ”Bakoyan explains.
Yezidis in Armenia live mainly in villages and are engaged in animal husbandry. Parents are often uncomfortable with boys continuing their studies because it hinders their participation in the economic support of their families. According to Bakoyan, boys often start helping their families with cattle breeding and farming early, or go to Russia to work.
“Most of the Yezidis do not value education.It is more important for them that the children work so that they can solve the economic problems of the family. Therefore, many are sent to Russia, ”Bakoyan says.
Legon Poghosyan agrees with him. He notes that boys’ education is limited to ninth grade.
“It doesn’t matter to them [the parents] that their children get an education. For so many years I have been working in this school, in this community, I cannot remember that at least one of them continued their studies at the university, ”he says.
New times are coming?
But the situation may change.On September 1 this year, the law “On General Education” came into force in Armenia, according to which 12-year secondary education became compulsory for all students. Prior to that, a nine-year education was compulsory.
Teacher Rustam Khasanyan (Gayane Mkrtchyan / OC Media)
Parents responsible for the upbringing and education of their children will be fined thirty times the minimum wage (currently 55,000 AMD ($ 115)) if they obstruct the education of their children.
In September this year, the Sinjar Yazidi national association conducted a survey in the Armavir and Aragatsotn regions to find out how many children are deprived of the right to education.
“In only six villages of Armavir region, 32 Yezidi children do not go to school, 19 of whom are girls,” says Boris Murazi, chairman of the association.
Naira Sargsyan, head of the department of education, culture and sports of Armavir region, notes that they have begun work on educating parents.She says that parents are being explained about the right of every child to education, but they have not yet begun to bring parents to administrative responsibility.
“We must convey this awareness to people that education is a prerequisite. Among these 32, there are also girls who have already got married and have not been able to exercise their right to education, ”says Naira Sargsyan.
However, the headmaster Ferika doubts that the new law will affect the Yezidi tradition.“I don’t think it will affect. Even if an administrative fine is imposed, I think that they will find a way to fight against it, ”says Levon Poghosyan.
Hasan Tamoyan, co-author of the Kurdish language textbooks for grades 1-12, also doubts that the law will be enough. He believes that coercion does not always work well.
“Most importantly, our intelligentsia must participate in this work. I always say that people like us must find their salvation in education and enlightenment, ”says Tamoyan.
Exception to rule
Asya Orudzhulyan and Ester Sadoyan (Gayane Mkrtchyan / OC Media)
The father of 21-year-old Zuzan Mamoyan advised his daughter to study well since childhood. He said that getting a higher education and becoming a good specialist is necessary in order to be independent from men in the future. They lived in an Armenian village, where they could see examples of other families and go beyond the traditional rules of the Yezidis.
“When I participate in our community events, men I know often say they love educated girls, but these same men don’t let their daughters study,” says journalist Zuzan by profession.
She adds that an educated daughter-in-law is for many a sign that she will not obey.
“My uncle’s daughter, Leila, she draws well, dreams of becoming a designer, but her family does not allow [to study]. We are close, I am an example for her. Leila has wings, but she is not allowed to fly, ”says Zuzan.
She believes that getting a higher education alone is not enough to break stereotypes in the community. In her opinion, prejudice will be overcome when a woman after marriage does not have to become a traditional housewife and stay at home.
“I became a journalist in order to publicly raise the problems of the community, to create an open discourse. Whether I marry or not does not matter, even after marriage I will continue my active social work, ”she says.
90,000 Stories of our patients – participants of the Great Patriotic War
AKIMOV VLADIMIR IVANOVICH, 06/01/1922
When the war began, I studied at the institute, just finished my second year – the Moscow Institute of Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture.I was born in the village of Babynino, Kaluga Region in 1922, there were five of us children – all boys. When we grew up a little, the family moved to Kaluga, my father, he was a railway worker, was transferred there to work. In 1939 I finished school named after Tsiolkovsky! The famous scientist taught us physics and mathematics. And we lived nearby. The school began to bear his name after the death of Konstantin Eduardovich. After leaving school, I entered the Moscow Institute.
On June 22, 1941, we had exams, at 12 o’clock we were in the canteen and heard Molotov’s speech on the radio, everyone immediately ran to the hostel, to the institute … In the Kaluga region, we dug anti-tank trenches, built bunkers, bunkers, mine fields.We caught the Germans who ended up on our territory after ours shot down German planes. Our task was to find them and deliver them. One such battle took place right over our trench, a German jumped out, we caught him and took him where we needed to. Fascist planes flew to bomb Moscow, and on the way back they purposefully dropped bombs on the defensive lines that we were building.
Our institute, the Timiryazev Academy and the Geological Prospecting Institute have formed a militia regiment of the Timiryazevsky district of Moscow.Almost all the students entered there. On October 15, 1941 we set out. At first, we stood on the defensive near Khimki, and we were often transferred to Moscow to look for and carry out the wounded from the bombed-out houses.
On December 5, we went on the offensive, with this regiment I continued to fight until the first wound … Near Leningrad, we, the infantry, went on the attack, crawled towards the Germans, but I successfully managed to bend my head, a bullet entered my neck, pierced my left lung from top to bottom, a little
touched my spine and left.My sister found me, if not for she would have frozen, February was … A girl at all. Natasha Clem. I still remember her. I found her after the war! We studied at the same institute with her, only at different courses and at different faculties.
I ended up in a hospital in the city of Ivanovo, where I was treated and taken to Kazakhstan. After being discharged, he got into the Komsomol Red Banner Rifle Battalion, which was being formed there. In August 1942, our battalion was sent to the Volkhov Front – to liberate Leningrad.In September he received a second wound. I was already a machine gunner, the machine gun saved me. The commander shouted an order: the machine gunners take a new position, I jumped up, ran and came under fire … A splinter broke a machine gun and crashed into my chest. The wound is still visible. The train was sent to the hospital in Cherepovets. After being discharged, in December 1942, I got into the 180th Infantry Division – she turned out to be very happy for me, I went with her to Prague, until the end of the war. There was only one minor wound – in the flesh of the leg, I didn’t even leave the company.We were transferred to Stalingrad, for defense along the Don. Stalingrad defended, went on the offensive, the Voronezh Front, the Kursk Bulge, the liberation of Ukraine, the crossing of the Dnieper, Kiev, the Korsun-Shevchenko operation, then Romania, Hungary, Austria and Czechoslovakia. He finished his military career near Prague in the city of Benesov on May 11, 1945 with the military rank of lieutenant. A terrible war … But we, the youth, from the very beginning had no doubts of victory.
After the second wound, in the 180th division, I was a scout.There were so many things, both good and difficult and difficult cases. I often think of one of them. 1943, summer. The task is to take a prisoner from that area. We, as always, watched this area, knew where their machine-gun point, dugouts, minefield were – we studied everything. Let’s go take – the scouts have a cover group and a capture group, I was just in it, there were 4 of us. The sapper removed the mine, we reached the wire, it was necessary to cut the lower rows. The Germans pulled the bottom row almost on the ground. The three of us managed to get through, and then it rang! The Germans raised such fire! I had to crawl back under the wire … There were two wounded, but not a single one was killed.We got to the lowland, where the bullets did not reach. They sat out a little, then slowly crawled out to their front edge. During the war, everything happened, many were killed. In the reconnaissance there were about a hundred people, by the end of the war, of the first composition that was formed near Cherepovets, 10 remained.
I remember how we crossed the Dnieper. Our reconnaissance group, we went first – by swimming. Also with machine guns. The commander of our platoon was even assigned a Hero of the Soviet Union. We have overcome everything. But we were supported by both artillery and aviation.And when on the other side they settled on a small piece, the rest on rafts, boats got over, then the steamers appeared.
After the war, he continued to serve in the Armed Forces of the USSR, was demobilized in 1974, retired colonel. He graduated from the Military Institute of Foreign Languages, continued military service in the Trans-Baikal, Ural and Moscow military districts in the tank forces, including the Guards Kantemirovskaya tank division. Then he worked as a teacher for 30 years at the Moscow Higher Combined Arms Command School.Every year on Victory Day, our division meets in Gorky Park, before there were many of us. Last year, 2019, there were 5 people. This year, I will also definitely go to the cherished bench …
Awards: Orders of the Patriotic War of the 1st degree (twice), of the Patriotic War of the 2nd degree, the Red Star (twice), the Order of Soldier’s Glory of 1-3 degrees, medals “For Courage”, “For Military Merit”, “For the Defense of Moscow”, “For the capture of Budapest ”,“ For the capture of Vienna ”,“ For the liberation of Prague ”,“ For the Victory over Germany ”,“ Veteran of the Armed Forces of the USSR ”, etc.

DESINOV IVAN GAVRILOVICH, 05.05.1925
Born and lived in the Republic of Mordovia, in the city of Kalyaevo. I was drafted to the front in 1943. First I got into training, went through training for three months, and received the rank of sergeant. Then he fell under Rzhev, waited for departure to the front, we were given dry rations – concentrates, which ended in the very first days. Three days later, they announced a march to the front line, which is 25 km.We were terribly hungry. The captain gave orders, and they brought us biscuits, 10 pieces for each: “This is for the first time, and then I will feed you.”
When they began to approach the front line, they saw scouts with blood all over their clothes. The appetite disappeared immediately. After the throw, we were sent to the bathhouse, then they really fed us meat, but we didn’t really feel like eating. It’s time to take up the defensive position, we stood for 3-4 days. A German is on one side of the lake, and we are on the other. The commander always told us, never shoot when the Germans come for water.They shout: “Comrad, comrad, we are fetching water. Do not shoot!” And we had one crest. So small, God forbid anyone. Take it from a machine gun as if you were shooting at the Germans. In response, they shibanuli with all the guns and destroyed our headquarters. We are immediately on the front line, on the offensive.
We went on to attack further, it was already in Belarus, only they broke into the village, and then there was shelling. The German destroyed all the houses at once. I didn’t reach the trees about six meters. I was wounded badly in the thigh, a whole piece came off. And there the birch fell.The messenger and I lay down behind the birch, and the messenger was a little ahead of us by a meter. The birch is over, and then everything is easy to see. German snipers, as it turned out, were hunting for the wounded, who crawl back to the swamp. A shot rang out. I saw only the skull fell apart from my messenger. I rather crawled back about two meters, turned around and until the birch ended quietly crawled, and as soon as the birch ended it was hard … We were not taught how to crawl. I was counting the seconds. After the sniper fires, then turn to the right, then to the left, then move forward.And there remained about 15 meters to the swamp. In short, I did not crawl two meters, the stack was standing, and the last bullet tore off my finger (the index of my left hand).
I lost consciousness for a moment, and then made a dash for the haystack: now, Fritz, you won’t take me! When he had already crawled to the swamp, then the Messerschmitts flew. I think they will score now. Saw a bomb crater. She is so healthy with water. I jumped there, taking off my overcoat so that I would not be seen. And as I looked, nothing remained of the overcoat. The German fired explosive bullets and riddled everything.I still have a splinter under my left shoulder blade. I was wounded in the morning, and in the evening, at 6-7 o’clock, it got dark and the orderlies began to look for the wounded. They shout, but I can’t even say a word, there is no voice anymore. Well, in short, they found me, gave me a wire, told me to crawl along this wire, there is our first-aid post, where they will help. And they did not say that there was still a rivulet to swim across. I went there on the move, but from the other side they already insured themselves. I go to the first-aid post, the doctor first looked at his finger, and then as he looked: a piece of meat was torn out of me… Then we were sent to another first-aid post on carts, which was at a distance of 25 kilometers. Then all the wounded were sent even further, already to the hospital, by train. And when I got into the car, the German started bombing again. At this moment I think they will finish us off on the train. Somehow they escaped.
In general, we arrived. It was 1944. Three months later, when the wound began to heal, they were sent to the transfer point. After three days at the checkpoint, a fistula opened. And at that time there was an order from Stalin: if they did not finish their treatment, then it is strictly forbidden to send to the front.The doctor looked at the point and sent him back to the hospital. I stayed there for another month and completed my medical treatment. Again they sent me to the transfer point and offered to serve in a flamethrower company. I agreed.
Served in flamethrower company 206. We were sent to places where the German was supposed to break through the defenses or a tank attack was planned. In one of the battles, it was assumed that the Germans would arrange reconnaissance in force. We each had small trenches for one person, and in front of us was a defensive structure made of logs. From weapons – a machine gun and a flamethrower.The flamethrower flame shot up to 30 meters in length. And our FOGs are 150 in length and six in width. FOGs were used for tank breakthroughs. The Germans were very afraid of us. There was just hell on earth. The breakthrough began, and the battle was already coming to an end. One of the last shells exploded near my trench, smashed the logs, and my legs were pinned down. First, a sharp pain pierced my legs, then suddenly it became easy. Our guys came running and pulled out. And my boots are full of blood. It was impossible to get to the first-aid post, because the terrain was flat. Everything, as in the palm of your hand, is visible and well-shot.Sanitary dogs were sent for me. And there is a small trough for one person. There were three dogs – the leader and two “subordinates” on the sides. They put me in a trough. And the leader, as it turned out, was wounded, a shell splinter cut his ear. He felt when and where the projectile would fall or the bullet would whistle. They took me to the first-aid post. The doctor said I was born with a white shirt. The shell fell practically into the trench, and you are alive.
Then they began to take city after city in Latvia closer to the sea. There it was already announced to us that the German had surrendered, that the Victory Day had come.After the war he ended up in Vyborg, where he served until 1950. Then he moved to Moscow, where he worked as a firefighter, was actively involved in cycling.

ZHIVOV ANATOLY PAVLOVICH, 01.06.1925
I finished 7 classes, I come home and think, now I’ll take a walk.Walked for a week, and the war began. We, 15 years old, were mobilized on July 12, 1941 to the labor front, where we built defensive lines around Moscow, a military airfield near Kalinin. On January 4, 1943, they sent a summons, and from the labor front we went to the military registration and enlistment office. On January 6, we were put on a train at the Zavidovo station and brought to Kalinino, where we were placed in a theater.
Then the Germans started bombing, and then they loaded us into the train and sent us off at night. Two days later, we learned that we were going to the Far Eastern station of Dauria, where they participated in the construction of fortifications.In the spring we were sent to the front, but we did not reach it. In the city of Syzran, they dropped us off and taught us how to use infantry weapons for another 4 months. Therefore, I got to the front prepared – a real infantry soldier. We were brought to Dnepropetrovsk, where they were given uniforms and given one anti-tank rifle for two. We went to the front.
On the first day, they were twice bombed. At night they came to the unit, and I learned that I had ended up in the 2nd battalion of the 259th rifle division of the 3rd Ukrainian Front. The offensive began.At night we surrounded the villages, liberated them from the German invaders. We approached the Southern Bug River, which was to be crossed. The Germans had a strong fortification of the lines, they did not spare cartridges and shells, constantly opening “hurricane” fire. An offensive in this situation was pointless, and we prepared the whole night, waited for boats and boats to be brought to us. And early in the morning they began processing with artillery.
It was a hellish place – everything was in smoke, everything was on fire. After the first artillery preparation and processing of the Katyusha, we began the crossing.It was very difficult – the month of January, the water is cold, and our boat was knocked out near the shore and had to swim further. We got out and began to look for where to hide, as the Germans were beating from distant positions without interruption. We found a ditch full of water and went straight into this ditch and lay down. After the second artillery preparation and processing of the “Katyusha” shouting: “Hurray! For the Motherland! For
Stalin! ” rushed into battle and after 20 minutes found themselves in the German trenches. In an hour and a half, we advanced 12 km, occupied a bridgehead, and our tanks had already appeared here. The Germans began to retreat.After that we approached the Berezovka station. They walked at night, the rain got us wet, frost froze at night, they dug in on the field, you can’t burn a fire, as the German will immediately notice, and we froze in the trenches so as not to freeze completely. Only our Russian infantry could endure such hardships! We liberated the village of Berezovka for 4 days. Here I saw an interesting episode, how one of our soldiers shot down a Junkers plane with an anti-tank gun. I myself destroyed two German machine-gun points from an anti-tank rifle.I was lucky here: the sniper was aiming at the forehead, but I accidentally turned my head, and the bullet pierced the ear of the hat with earflaps.
On April 14, 1944, we crossed the Dniester in the Oloneshty area, where we fought heavy battles on the captured bridgehead. At night we approached the settlement, surrounded the village where German, Romanian and Hungarian units, as well as our policemen, were stationed. Divided into groups of 4 soldiers, we began to break into houses and take prisoner the serenely sleeping invaders. In the morning it became known that many retreating Romanian troops had accumulated at the crossing, which were trying to get into Moldova.Taking advantage of the panic and confusion in the enemy ranks, we immediately captured the crossing and took up defenses on the opposite bank of the Dniester. After this incident, I had to cross the Dniester twice more, but with less losses on our side. Then we were sent to Moldova, where we took part in the Jassy-Kishinev operation. Until August 20, 1944, we were on the defensive. On the night of August 20, we were alerted, we left the trenches and headed along the prepared passages in the reeds to the German trenches.Artillery preparation was expected in the morning, but it was not. The battalion commander gave the command “Forward!” The Germans could not even imagine that the Russians would be able to get to them through the reeds!
In 9 days we liberated Moldova and reached the Romanian border. We were ferried across the Danube and sent to liberate Constanta. For a week we walked day and night, literally sleeping on the go. In a week we reached Constance and freed him. We approached the Bulgarian border, in front was the city of Shumen, where there were still Germans.We were told that we would not cross the Bulgarian border yet, and we dug in on the Romanian border, waiting for the command. On September 8 we were given a command and we freed Shumen. Then we went to Sofia, about 5 kilometers to the city a column of “Studebakers” approached, and we entered the city. The Bulgarians were very happy with us. We stood for two days, rested, and we were sent to the Bulgarian-Turkish border to form, since in the battles we lost more than half of the unit. At this time, the war ended. We were very glad! During the 8 months of the liberation of Ukraine, Moldova and Romania, we have never spent the night under the roof of a house, but only in the trenches.Of the 400 soldiers of our battalion who began the combat path near Dnepropetrovsk, 15 people reached the end of the war.
At the end of the war, we, from the infantry, who had 7 classes of education, were sent to the headquarters of the communications regiment to replace the girls who were demobilized after the Victory. From September 1945 I became a signalman and in 1945-1946 I stood in Sofia, in 1947 in Ternopil, and was demobilized in May 1950. In January 1950, they let me go on vacation, came home, and there was nothing there … Therefore, after demobilization, I came to Moscow to see my aunt, got a job at the Moscow Locomotive Repair Plant and worked at the plant for 52 years.

KONOVALOV NIKOLAY MIKHAILOVICH, 18.12.1925
When the war began, I was 15 years old. I just graduated from a vocational school, received the specialty of a locksmith-toolmaker. On June 22, 1941, before the final exams, we had a sports festival at the old Lokomotiv stadium, and at 12 o’clock on the radio, Molotov announced that the war had begun.Instead of final exams, we were all sent to factories. I ended up at the Budyonny plant in the Stalin region, which was firing artillery shells. I turned shells on a lathe.
In the fall of 1941, Moscow was bombed, we first ran to hide in bomb shelters, and then ran to the rooftops to extinguish the mines. At first it was scary, but then we got used to it and were not afraid anymore – we were just boys. After a while, we were told that the plant would be evacuated to the Urals. We were built, and we went on foot along the Enthusiasts highway to Petushki.From there, they were sent by car towards Gorky, and then by barge – to Perm, from there – to the city of Lysva. The former brick factory began to produce shells. I stayed there until the end of 1942, before being drafted into the Army.
I was sent to the city of Cheboksary, we took the oath. Then I got to the school of radio operators, knew Morse code well, knew the radio stations. And in December 1943, I was sent to an armored train, was the commander of the communications department. We were sent to the front near Kirovograd, to the Ukraine. The armored train was a very powerful fighting force.It was formed so that it could fight against aircraft, equipment and infantry. Therefore, he was transferred to where he was needed. Usually hostilities were conducted like this: let’s say, ours are advancing somewhere, shelling is needed. The shelling was carried out, and we were immediately pulled back so as not to be spotted. Or vice versa, let’s say, they drove us, as soon as the shelling took place, we were immediately pulled back, because the Nazis were very hunting for armored trains. He was wounded, shell-shocked. From the hospital, the commander again took me to the unit.
From Ukraine they sent us towards Moldova.There were very strong battles in the Balti region, then in the Kotovsk region, where the Kishinev group was. There were many episodes, especially when they were advancing. Let’s say there is an offensive. Moldavian river Dniester. The shelling begins. Moreover, there was always an order: “Shoot so as not to destroy the bridge.” Bridges were needed. The Germans blew them up when retreating. We had to make sure that the German guards were destroyed, but the bridge was left.
How? The commander of the armored train gives the order to the officer. As a rule, I always went with him, the radio station on my shoulders and in a roundabout way – to the rear, so that you would not be noticed.And the armored train starts zeroing in. He will fire two or three shells, as if by chance.
And the officer corrects, passes: let’s say, undershoot, flight, or to the right. We always took instruments with us to adjust the shooting. He always wrote down the coordinates. As a rule, the shelling began, only a little dawn begins. There were also such cases. Our radio stations were called 6PK (“six pe ka rubbed sides”): two heavy boxes. Once fell off a makeshift raft into the Dniester. I think if you leave the radio station – a penalty.So I had to flounder.
I got to Berlin, we stayed there for a week. The armored train was checked, repaired and sent to the Far East. Victory Day found me on the way, somewhere in the central part of Russia on an armored train. The radio announced that the war was over. There was such a shooting!
Arrived at the border near Manchuria. On the very first night – a combat alert. Artillery shelling began. Hulin-Hutou was hammered for half an hour. Then the troops went on the attack. I stayed with three signalmen to assemble the cable.When everyone gathered, they gave us the order: “To an armored train”, moved towards China. The worst thing was the fight against suicide bombers, with samurai. We reached Harbin. There were battles there, but mostly shelling.
When everything was over with Japan, we were disbanded. I ended up in the 10th communications battalion, which at one time at the Yalta conference served communications, as a squad leader in a training company. We prepared for the army of signalmen, radio operators, estists (the main telegraph apparatus was then ST-35). I was in this company for a whole year.And at the end of the 46th, after a 10 km march in the cold, I ended up in the regiment’s first aid post. And then it turned out that I had been given the second group of disability a long time ago.
… Near Kirovograd there was a strong raid of German aircraft, a bomb, apparently of a very large caliber, fell nearby. I was sitting at this time in the radio room. I was thrown back by the blast. American headphones saved me from deafness. I don’t know what I was so thrown into, I was so shocked that blood came from my nose and ears. But my eyes were especially painful! The commander did not want to send me to the hospital, because there were no more radio operators and I was the only one who knew Morse code.Some solution was applied to my eyes, but the eye remained damaged. The second wound I received in the early summer of 1944 in Ukraine. He underwent treatment in a hospital in Nikolaev, but was also not allowed to complete the treatment …
After the war, he served in the fire department. Major retired. Participant of the Parade in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War.

VLADIMIR TERENTIEVICH KUTS
I remember my life and sometimes I myself do not believe and wonder how this could have happened … I was born in 1927 in the Poltava region. His father was a builder of railway bridges, but in 1937 he was arrested and sent to Norilsk, to a camp for 8 years.The family of the enemy of the people was not accepted into the collective farm in order to survive, the mother sold the Samogon, exchanged it for bread.
In 1941, the Germans came to our village. In the spring of 1942, a policeman came, began to demand moonshine, bread, and drove me to the chief of police. Not long before that, I found leaflets in the forest with portraits of Stalin and anti-fascist slogans, they were found. They drove me to Germany as an Ostarbeiter. I was 13 years old. I was a young prisoner of fascist camps. On a railway unloading near Halle, he earned two hernias, dug trenches in Hamburg.We were called “Kleine Stalin” and “Russisch Schwein”, they said that after the war the entire Slavic population would be slaves.
So I stayed in the camp for three years, became very weak, sick, I was assigned to the Bauer in Devangen, the landowner Elder, – he had a garden, it saved me. In March 1945, a column of American troops came to Devangen, the Americans stopped me, at first they asked something in English – I did not understand. Then one American, US Army sergeant Eugene Melli, asked in German – and I taught German at school, in Germany I could already speak fluently – my memory was perfect.I told him that an ambush awaited them – at a sharp bend on a mountain road in the Black Forest, the Germans had installed anti-tank guns in the trenches: Starz had let slip about this. The Americans managed to bypass the ambush, and soon Mellie said: will you come to serve us?
I agreed and I was assigned as the gunner for the Willys MB jeep: their gunner was killed a few days ago, and the driver was wounded. On the second day I was in battle. He fought in a reconnaissance detachment. In April 1945, near Dellingen, during a crossing, after a shell from a Tiger tank hit a jeep, he was severely wounded, and his teeth were thrown.
Already in Austria, he officially joined the Soviet troops – he came directly in American uniform. On May 1, 1945, he sailed to the Ens River in the direction of Vienna in a trophy Mercedes-Benz donated by Corporal Bill Risky, as well as a supply of food and weapons. Where should I go? Of course, after checking, they were assigned to a special counterintelligence department, to the 16th Guards Airborne Regiment of the 5VDD. So he managed to fight in the Red Army, the fighting went on for another month. In this division, until the end of August 1945, I was a driver-translator and machine gunner.He took part in special operations, but continued to walk in American uniform.
At the end of August, our unit was taken away, I seemed to be out of work. On occasion, I turned to the division commander, Major General Afonin: Pavel Ivanovich, can I contact you? – What do you want, American, – I want to go home, – How to go home, you haven’t served yet … – I haven’t been at home for three years. – And how much you? – In November 18 will be. – So you’re not 18 ?! Then let’s see … Since I showed myself well – I jumped with a parachute, and knew languages, and passed through bondage, they let me go.
At the same time, Captain Shvarev says: do not try to tell anyone that you fought in the US army, it will not bring you anything good. He tore up the documents the Americans gave me. And I returned to my homeland as a person taken away to Germany. Registered. At this time in Norilsk my father was released – without the right to leave, and I rushed to him. I got a job at a thermal power plant, where my father worked in a boiler shop. I went to night school, in the eighth grade. He worked like a damn and studied. Graduated from high school, grew up at work.I wanted to go to the nautical school in Vladivostok, I passed the exams, but with my file – I was in Germany, my father without the right to leave – what kind of sailor? Did not work out. Then he translated the documents and entered the energy faculty at the All-Union Correspondence Polytechnic Institute in Moscow.
He worked at the Norilsk Mining and Metallurgical Combine for 27 years and rose to the position of Deputy Chief Power Engineer. Then he was the plenipotentiary of the Council of Ministers of the USSR for objects of paramount state importance (Sayan and Tajik aluminum plants), the chief power engineer of the Main Directorate of the Nickel-Cobalt Industry in the Ministry of Nonferrous Metallurgy of the USSR, Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of the USSR Gossnab.And in 1988 he retired.
There were two heart attacks, after the second I was in the Central Clinical Hospital and told my ward neighbor his whole story. The neighbor turned out to be the Deputy Minister of Heavy Engineering. He was taken aback. I held very high positions, I attended closed meetings of the Council of Ministers. After recovering, he met with the leadership of the KGB in 1988 and told the whole truth. No repression followed.
I started looking for American colleagues, flew to the United States, in Philadelphia I met colleagues from the 4th Infantry Division, including Eugene Melli.I was given an American War Veteran ID, and the President of the 4th Division Veterans Association, Harry Gram, appointed me an honorary member of the association for life, and I was awarded the Purple Heart medal. And in May 1991 he received a Russian certificate of a participant in the Great Patriotic War and awards. Then he visited Baden-Württemberg, where he met the wife and children of Anton Elder, for whom he worked. On May 8, 2015, he was invited to the 70th Victory anniversary ceremony at the US Embassy in Russia, and the next day he was a guest of the Victory Parade in Moscow.I was also invited to France to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of the war and the anniversary of the opening of the second front in Normandy.

MAKAREVICH ULYANA IVANOVNA, 09/27/1919
I was born in the Urals, in the small village of Peter, Perm province.My parents died of typhus when I was only half a year old. There were six of us children, the elder brother was 16 years old, he raised us all to our feet. He married a charming girl who lives in the village next door. Mary was 15!
Our family was considered prosperous by those standards, our parents kept their own household, kept cattle, planted a vegetable garden. The Committee of the Poor took pity on the orphans and did not begin dispossessing our family.
But we lived hard, in the winter we went to the fields to pick frozen potatoes.My older brother put me on a cart – and forth. When the frost intensified, it became terribly cold, and so that I would not completely freeze, he tied me to the cart and walked on, and I ran after him and so slowly warmed up. All five, Ivan and Marya, were raised to be decent people. Then came the war. Ivan with the beginning of the Great Patriotic War went to the front.
In 1942, I graduated from the Troitsk Military Aviation School of Armament Mechanics, and I was enlisted as an aviation weapons shooter in the 196th Fighter Aviation Regiment.And with him I went through the whole war. During the participation in hostilities during the Great Patriotic War, the flight personnel of the regiment performed 5,022 sorties. 112 enemy airplanes were destroyed in the air.
The regiment operated near Leningrad, covering the city of Tikhvin. We lived in dugouts, food in the first years of the war was hard: if a hardened piece of bread fell, it was already happiness. Our dugouts stood right on the banks of the Tikhvinka River – the water in it was red with blood … it was creepy and scary.Another time, the pilot Belyukin landed the plane with a torn off tail.
There is still a fighter diving into Tikhvinka before our eyes, then Roma died, I do not remember his name, originally from Ukraine.
In 1943 she received the rank of corporal.
In September 1944, our 196th regiment was transferred to the Karelian front. The soldiers took part in the Petsamo-Kirkenes operation, operated in the skies of the Arctic. At night I guarded the planes – with a rifle in the Karelian forest, during the day I cleaned the barrels of bullets so that not a single bullet would get stuck.
In Finland, the war is over for me. The first combat award – the medal “For the Defense of Leningrad” – was awarded to me in 1943, and in March 45, the commander of the 196th Fighter Aviation Regiment of the 324th Fighter Aviation “Svirskaya” Red Banner Division awarded me the medal “For the Defense of the Soviet Arctic “. Stalin personally expressed gratitude for the defense of Leningrad and the Arctic.
I served in the same regiment together with the legendary pilots Ivan Kozhedub, Alexander Babaev, Alexander Bilyukin and Georgy Mandrykin – this is my great friend, he lived in the Lyubertsy garrison for many years.After the war, they became famous throughout the country.
After the Great Patriotic War, fate brought me together with a young man – Nikolai Makarevich, he served aircraft at military airfields. A few months later, we signed, and soon he was sent to serve in a military unit located in the village of Volosovo in the Leningrad Region, from where in 1953 he was transferred to Lyubertsy. Here, in a military town, our family received a small room – brother-soldier Ivan Kozhedub interceded.
From here Nicholas was sent to serve in Austria, and then in Hungary. Together with my husband, of course, we went with my daughter. But when an armed uprising began here in October 1956, Taya and I were evacuated to Lyubertsy, where, fortunately, we had a room in a communal apartment. After some time, Nikolai also returned, he continued his service at military airfields in Ku-Binka and Lyubertsy.
From 1966 to 1992, until I was 80, I worked as an operator of a water pumping station at the Lyubertsy Vodokanal on Kirov Street.Received the title of “Veteran of Labor”. Having gone on a well-deserved rest, she helped in raising her grandson. Today I live for my pleasure, if the weather is fine, I definitely go outside to get some fresh air.
Awards: Order of the Patriotic War, II degree, medals “For the Defense of Leningrad”, “For the Defense of the Soviet Arctic”, “For the victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945”, etc.

NURKAEV ATAULLA TAMERBAEVICH, 27.05.1927
Born in the village of Pitsa, Sergach District, Nizhny Novgorod Region in 1927 in a large family – I have 2 sisters and 6 brothers, I was the fifth child in the family. The village and the entire area we had was Tatar, around the Russian villages, we all lived together, talked, went to the bazaar. He graduated from the 7th grade, wanted to study at a pedagogical school, but his father did not let him go, he had to help his parents with the housework.
After the start of the war, he worked on a collective farm – all the men were taken to the front, the women – for peat mining, the old people and we boys remained.Everything is done by hand, the village is large – 700 yards, 7 thousand hectares. As adults worked, they carried sacks, all summer they collected ricks, in winter they threshed and took bread to the station, everything was …
In 1943, my father went to the front. The older brother, he was in 1919, disappeared without a trace on the first day of the war – he served in Belarus, on the border. How many then searched – not a rumor or a spirit. The second brother, 1922, returned wounded. My father was at the front near Rzhev, he was surrounded, then he was released, the patient returned, he also drank his life.In 1944, I also volunteered for the army. From the region we were called up by 180 people, from our village there were six friends of us, two were in the marines, and we were in the engineer troops, in the mine company, and we served in one platoon. Thank God all four returned. In general, many people died …
He passed preliminary training in mine clearance, since by the end of the war there were a lot of mined areas. There were no special mine detectors, they used what they had.A knife bayonet and thick wire were used as probes. Of course, this dramatically increased the risk of death when mines were found. There was a lot of work, it was necessary to clear not only German mines, but also our own ones, and ours were more dangerous than German ones, they could detonate from less weight and their hull was wooden.
Two episodes were engraved in my memory, in which comrades in arms died before my eyes. It was in the spring, we cleared the field, took out the fuse and dragged the mines into the general area allocated for this.By the end of the day, the entire area was cleared of mines. The commander calls everyone for a snack, and one of the comrades saw that something was glittering in the light in the distance, and asked permission to go and see and, if it turns out to be a mine, then try to clear it. The commander gave permission. Less than half an hour later, there was an explosion. This is how my first comrade died …
In the second, even more tragic moment, a section of the road was cleared, along which it was planned to supply the army. The unit commander divided us all into three groups.Part of the unit found mines with probes, others dug out mines, and the third group dragged the mines into a common pile. For safety reasons, all these stages are supposed to be performed separately in order to reduce the risk in the event of an explosion. But, as it happens, all three brigades were in the mined field. Those who did not work smoked and communicated with each other. And then, there was an explosion, a small explosion, but after this explosion there was some kind of crash, and I lost consciousness. As it turned out later, the explosion detonated the entire minefield, who died on the field, and this is 19 people.I was saved only by the fact that I was 50 meters from the mine clearing site.
Once we go, towards the boy rides on horseback, shakes the newspaper: “The war is over! The war is over! ”, We shoot, all the cartridges that we had were fired. It was such joy. But after that we continued to clear mines for a long time.
Each day of the service could be the last. I still remember how in the morning, before each exit to the mined area, I mentally said goodbye to my comrades in arms … You have breakfast, but your head is spinning: will I be back for lunch or not?… Dangerous, God forbid, I wish it to no one. It’s hard to even remember. Locals have exploded so many times – they are digging in their garden, you look – it exploded.
We moved from village to village in the Kaluga region, Baryatinsky district. Every one was cleared, we had a lot of weapons, gas masks. We went through so many villages and met only one whole, the rest were all burned. The people lived in dugouts, dugouts. We built a hut for ourselves – you chop the trees, build them, the next morning it will rain – everything is soaked through and through.When we cleared the mines, it became freer, people began to walk into the forest, build on the sly. It was hard for everyone then.
He did not undergo further training in the armed forces, and therefore, throughout his entire service in the army, he remained a private, and this until 1951, then a replacement came to us – with equipment already, with dogs, not like we with probes. Out of 120 people, 80 returned to the village, many wounded, rarely who like me, returned without anything.
I came to Moscow, started a family, went to children.He worked as an inspector at an enterprise, a loader, a simple worker. In 2000 he received a visual disability.
On Victory Day we used to meet with our own unit, but now I’m probably the only one left. I never went to the Kaluga region, I could not, only once I drove past the station, I happened to be there – so everything flooded. Recently I saw and showed such a place on TV – Hare Mountain. Recognized him. Only earlier everything was open around, but now birches are growing, the earth is overgrown.

PAVLOV ALEXEY ANDREEVICH, 06/01/1924
I was an active friend from school days – I was a pioneer, then I joined the Komsomol. In 39, he finished seven classes, came to Moscow. I decided to go to the Dzerzhinsky Aviation Engineering College at the first GPP. A country boy, and passed all the exams without a single C. We were trained as technologists and mechanics for aircraft repair.
In June 1941 I was 17 years old.We learned that the war had begun in the last lesson at the technical school, I was finishing the second course. But I felt that the war was about to start, I followed the events in the world. A few days later we were sent to the labor front to dig anti-tank trenches. The Komsomol secretary came and announced that all Komsomol members should be at the Abelmanovskaya outpost. After the meeting from the Rzhevsky railway station we were sent to Vyazma. Each got a task – to dig 4 km of earth, they worked for a month. Those who are older stayed to be drafted, and we were sent to Moscow.A month later, among the volunteers, I joined the army.
At first I was sent to Serpukhov to the aviation technical school. When the front approached, we were transferred to Kyzylorda, to Central Asia. The term of training was reduced, we already studied not to be technicians, but to be mechanics, but we did not have to finish this either – the whole set was sent to replenish infantry schools. There was not enough infantry, there were very large, enormous losses! I got to the Belotserkovsky infantry school, then transferred to Vasinsky. We studied for a month and went to the front.There we were sorted out and those with secondary education were sent to a communications company. I was sent to Krasnoyarsk to study as a radio operator. I studied there for a month, received gratitude. Arrived in the 129th Infantry Division, it was the First Shock Army, North-Western Front, near Staraya Russa. They put me on line communication, to correct communication between the artillery regiment, observation posts, batteries and headquarters. By the way, the Germans had single-core wires, we have
stranded ones – while you twist them all! We tried to use the trophy wires.The Fritzes were well prepared for the war,
when we occupied their dugouts we were surprised – everything was finished, everything was neat – what to say, it was an advanced European army.
I got a slight injury … Serena hits, sparks in all directions, and you are looking for the ends of the wires in the funnel … We took rolls of cable with us, on our back – a wooden booth with a telephone, two grenades in our belt. This is how we fought … The wound was shrapnel, in the face. Almost 80 years have passed, one splinter is still sitting in my cheek. I spent two weeks in the infirmary and again to the front.
We always knew we would win. Even at the beginning of the war, when they suffered terrible losses. In labor detachments, we saw how ours were retreating … I remember how fascist planes, squadrons of 9-10 planes flew over us. In the first days of the war, the Nazis slammed all our aviation. Their intelligence worked perfectly, and ours on the eve of the war gave the Germans the opportunity to fly over the country. Yes … it is no coincidence that the German propelled a thousand kilometers to Moscow, and even farther on the flanks. By 1943, when the troops were redeployed, we gradually went west.Every day – ten kilometers, then stopped, we organized a regimental school of an artillery regiment. We moved in this way for two months, up to the starting position. Attacks began there. Closer to the front – we walked 20 kilometers per day. We were preparing the starting positions for our batteries, the division had three batteries – two cannon, one howitzer.
By that time I was promoted to the rank of sergeant, appointed commander of the department of top-calculators. We were engaged in the binding of battle formations to the terrain, that is, we determined the coordinates, worked with topographic maps, optical instruments, walked inseparably with a stereo tube – a 20-kilogram, good tube.Conducted reconnaissance – in the artillery battalion there were three departments: mine topographic, top-calculators, the second – communications, which I was doing before, and the intelligence department. Intelligence worked at the forefront all the time. In 1943, they took Oryol, crossed the upper reaches of the Dnieper, then – Drut. The river was frozen, February, it seems, was … I will never forget: on the broken ice (the Nazis fired all the time), they did not feel the cold, the main thing was to get through this river and gain a foothold. You will get nothing more into a shallow funnel, but into a deep one – everything, the river flows, blows it under the ice … Operation Bagration began – the liberation of Belarus.The Komsomol members were always ahead. Concurrently, I was a Komsomol organizer of the battalion, I published “Combat Leaflets”, at the front it was a propaganda weapon. Sometimes older soldiers, forty years old, our fathers said: “Beware, take care of yourself, you still have to fight and work …” or “Son, don’t meddle!” study, to the rear. Graduated from the Stalingrad Tank School. They let me out as a junior lieutenant, and soon they appointed me as the commander of a tank platoon – the T-34 is a good tank, I mastered it well.Crew – 4 people, in the tank where I was, I was the fifth – in the turret of the tank. I had a walkie-talkie and communication with the crews.
On the Victory Day, the school was located near Kharkov, in Chuguevo. There we had a tanker. It was necessary to make the last shot – he was entrusted to the foreman, who was in charge of economic affairs, he was a good foreman! – he never was at the shooting, he got into a herd of geese! It was laughing! After the Victory, I served for another year, was promoted to lieutenant, was the commander of a T-34 tank platoon in the 664 Guards Tank Regiment, near Izmail.Zhukov was the commander of the Odessa district, we continued to study, studied devices, levers – we had to climb out of the ravine and attack … Then we returned to Moscow.
I have two medals “For Courage” – the first for the Oryol, the second for the crossing of the Drut ‘River. There is “For Victory over Germany” and 18 more medals. Received the Order of the Patriotic War. After the war, there was already the Order of the Badge of Honor, I worked in the Ministry of Transport Construction – the head of the department of Glavzapsibdorstroy – we supervised 14-15 construction and assembly trusts, seven of them in the Tyumen region, they were building airfields, a good airfield was built in Yakutsk.After the war, people were always invited to parades. This year I will go too.

VASILY ALEKSEEVICH PLOTNIKOV, October 16, 1925
Before the war I lived in the Voronezh region, in the Kozlovsky district.
In 41, his father, his name was Alexei Nikiforovich, was immediately taken into the army.
He served until 1944, returned home wounded, but at that time I was already at the front myself.
On October 16, 1942, I turned 17 years old, and on December 28 I received a summons to appear at the military registration and enlistment office on January 3, 1943.They sent us to a transit point, where they took me to a group of submachine gunners. We studied for three months, we were silently loaded into wagons and taken away. Everything was secret, we did not know where they were taking us.
We ended up in Ukraine near Kharkov. From here, we started fighting. The First Voronezh Front took Kharkov, then liberated Kiev. It was very difficult to cross the Dnieper: the river is large – the pontoon bridges were opened, they moved mainly at night.
So we passed half of the Ukraine, and the order came to rename the First Voronezh Front into the First Ukrainian.The commander was Nikolai Fedorovich Vatutin.
We reached Belarus, liberated Western Ukraine, ended up in Poland. We received an order to take one of the industrial cities with minimal costs and destruction. We decided to create a bag: to surround from the north, from the south and from the east, and to the west to give a way where our infantry can meet the enemy with dignity.
Then we reached Prague, and then Stalin informs Zhukov that the Second Ukrainian Front is ahead of him, and asks who will take Berlin.Zhukov decides that we will take Berlin: we will leave Prague, let the hetman give orders, then we will figure it out. And we went to Berlin.
I also have wounds. Once in Poland, when we went on reconnaissance, we were betrayed. When they were interrogated, they tortured: what part, how many soldiers, equipment … How was they tortured? They put their fingers in the door and closed it. There were five of us, only two remained … Then they closed it in a hut, which was guarded by a sentry. But we managed to escape: we climbed onto the stove, rested our feet, broke the ceiling and climbed out through the roof.All the castles remained intact, so they did not immediately realize us, but we tied the reeds to our heads so that we could not be seen, and went like a river to our own. They walked like a river – so that the German dogs would not take the trail.
When we got to ours, we were summoned to a special department for explanations, then sent to the front, I ended up in the anti-aircraft unit as a squad leader, became a sergeant. So with the anti-aircraft unit and reached Berlin.
It was hard. There were large pillboxes around the city. There is a bunker in the Reichstag. They surrounded the Reichstag on three sides, and there the subway was like a subway: equipment for life, meter-high walls, doors.Hitler and his wife and Goebbels and his family were hiding in it. When Berlin was surrounded, the Germans were offered surrender. Three German generals and ours went to negotiations: they did not agree. Dispersed. This was repeated twice. They agreed to capitulate only for the third time. They agreed only when Goebbels shot 4 children, his wife and himself shot himself, but did not give the command. When they surrendered, ours gave the Germans a radio for communication, so that they gave the command to cease fire.
After the signing of the surrender agreement, the question arose who would take Prague.Zhukov gave an order to the First Ukrainian Front, where I served, to liberate Prague. We took the city for three days. May 9 has come – Victory, and we are fighting, we are liberating Prague.
After Prague there was Serbia, Romania. A redistribution of forces took place in Potsdam. We were sent to Chemnitz. We guarded the occupied territory. I served there for 6 years after the war. My turn for mobilization came only in 1951. I came home, graduated from the combine operator courses and worked as a combine operator for 22 years, then I was a foreman, a forwarding agent, then at a creamery.
He married a girl from our village whom he knew even before the war. During the war, she, being quite a girl, raised bread for the army.
Awards – Order of the Patriotic War, Stalin’s gratitude “For the capture of Berlin”, medals “For courage”, “For the capture of Berlin”, “For victory over Germany”, “For the liberation of Prague”, etc.

REPLYANSKAYA ANASTASIA IVANOVNA, 16.11.1923
I was born in Moscow, we lived near the Belorussky railway station, in the Alexander Nevsky lane. In 1941, when the war began, I was already working at the 39th V.R. Menzhinsky, I was 17 years old.
When we began to enroll as volunteers in the militia, we, three friends, decided to go too – we really wanted to help. At first they didn’t take us, then we went to the Komsomol committee, in the end we persuaded everyone. We were given a little lesson and were sent to the front by an ambulance train, which took out the wounded from the front.
When I start talking about the war, everything is in front of my eyes again, especially the wounded, and I begin to cry … I felt very sorry for the wounded, especially the tankers, they were badly burned, covered with a crust, and if a fly settled, then worms started up under the crust … When we carried out the tankers, we immediately covered them with caps from flies. It was awful …
A soldier on your shoulders – and you drag. But then I didn’t cry. We had some kind of pride, we really wanted the war to end as soon as possible. Both the soldiers and us.Nobody ever complained. They only prayed to God and cursed the accursed Hitler.
We worked for 24 hours, had only to sit down, fell down and fell asleep. How many girls dragged on their shoulders, God only knows. First, the wounded were dragged to a field hospital, sorted, and then loaded onto a train.
Once, a girl who had not yet been shot, was ordered to accompany the sled with the wounded from the station to the hospital. The ride was long, the frost was strong. The guys lie tightly on the sled under blankets and sheepskins, grinding their teeth in pain.For some reason, everything was without hats, I wrapped towels on their heads so that they would not get cold at the end, and lay down on top of the sheepskins myself – I thought it would be warmer for my legs. We arrive at the hospital,
wounded are taken out of the sleigh – oh, these are “samovars”. Samovars in hospitals were called wounded, whose arms and legs were completely amputated: they had nothing to warm up …
Another time I accompanied a train with the wounded, a child came from somewhere at the station, asked for food, I felt so sorry for him, I put him on porridge, gave bread, and he brought me a bucket of apricots.How did he bring the bucket, the baby was really there?
At the front, especially in the offensive, there was always a shortage of bandages. We were very happy when a few bales of American bandages were once brought to our hospital – the “second front” covered us with a different deficit! And even more, we girls – nurses and nurses – were delighted with special white kerchiefs for tying up wounded hands to soldiers. We continued to tie up their hands with bandages, and from the headscarves of those American … white panties we sewed ourselves. There was no women’s underwear in the army at all.
Burst into a provincial German town. Nobody here. Houses, apartments – everything wide open. Silence is complete, only flocks of German children 3-5-7 years old wander the streets. There are no adults in the city at all. The first thing we did was to feed these children. It turned out that the Germans abandoned their children, got scared and fled into the forest. They knew that a Russian soldier would not offend children. We stayed in that town for 20 days, fed the children from the field kitchens, and cooked porridge – for those who were younger – specially with fresh milk, like our own …
Then our unit went through Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Austria.There was an interesting case in Austria. We were standing near Vienna. There were no more battles, and we walked around the city, went to the bazaar, even visited a photo studio. I decided to take a photo in something civilian. Where can I get it? There was no looting, we did not go into closed shops. I noticed that we have a blouse instead of a doormat in our apartment. I washed it, ironed it, put it on and ran to the photographer. Now this is the only card that I have survived, taken during the war …
I met Victory as a foreman, a medical instructor.I remember how we climbed onto the roof and shouted “Hurray!” Soon after the victory, we left for Moscow. I didn’t want to become a nurse or a doctor, I had seen enough of the war to my fill. I went to work as a crane operator at the Hammer and Sickle plant, poured steel into molds. Interesting work, by the way! Then I learned, became the head of the department, the deputy director of the machine-building plant.
After the war, we met every year, soldiers came, whom I carried from the battlefield. Now of us, three friends, I am the only one left.
Awards: Order of the Red Banner, two Orders of the Red Star, medal “For Courage”, etc.

TSAREV LEONID STEPANOVICH, April 22, 1926
Born in Smolensk, attended city school # 1. It all started suddenly, on June 22, 1941, bombs began to fall at night, one fell on our house, my mother was injured, her arm was torn off, and in the morning German tanks started to go. Even before the war, my father went to the front, was badly wounded and died.I helped my mother with my brother and sister, I was the eldest. From Smolensk we moved to the village to stay with our relatives, the Germans came to us and took away the cows, took away pigs, chickens, eggs – they robbed … Smolensk region was occupied by the Germans until the autumn of 1943. They stopped everyone, checked their documents, were afraid of the partisans. Once I got there too – I went to Smolensk to buy at least some food, to exchange my clothes for bread. Policemen stopped me, put me in jail, mocked me … It hurts to remember. Most of the police were Russians, they did worse than the Germans.
In the early autumn of 1943, the front line approached our village. For Smolensk there were strong battles, the Germans built defense lines, trenches, everyone shouted “Hurray!” But the soldiers drove by in tanks, cars, horses rather quickly, without stopping. There were still heavy battles ahead, the army went on without stopping to prevent the Germans from strengthening.
After the liberation of Smolensk by Soviet troops, I was drafted into the army, I was 17 years old. From Smolensk we were brought to Perm (during the war this city was called Molotov).Not far from the city was the Bershet camp, here, deep in the rear, they trained riflemen, infantrymen, artillerymen, signalmen and tankmen. Trained and sent to the front. I spent seven months in the training division, and then the order came, we were loaded into echelons – and sent to the front line. Before the front, the train stopped in the forest, we were assigned to parts – to replenish the regiments.
I ended up as a private in the artillery troops, they put me in command of the crew. Intelligence reported, and we hit targets.”Katyusha” beat, roar, everything burned … “Katyusha” beat far away and quickly removed, changed position, and we hit closer targets with mortars, our task was to suppress fire from nearby fascist trenches and dugouts, destroy mortar, machine-gun points …
We went to reconnaissance, the sappers will clear the “window” – we go out, it was important to get back into the same “window”. They were ambushed, friends were wounded and killed … There was a war, but people were kinder. We all helped each other, took care of each other.The commanders are the same guys, only a little older, but there were also old soldiers, they took care of us.
The troops of the Second Belorussian Front, where I served, participated in the liberation of the city of Gumbinnen in East Prussia in January 1945 (now Gusev is located on the border of the Kaliningrad region), it was an important communications center with a strong stronghold of defense, it was located here the main line of the German defense. This area allowed the Germans to quickly transfer troops from one sector to another.We entered the city at night, it was all burning, the resistance in the neighborhoods was fierce, they fought to the last bullet, the Germans began to run away, in the morning only local residents and some cattle remained. Thanks to the capture of this city, the breakthrough of Soviet troops to Konigsberg became possible, the transfer of German troops to the Baltic was not allowed. He also took part in the battles in Konigsberg, where there were fierce battles and a lot of people died. The city was well fortified, around the city were water trenches, anti-tank ditches, barbed wire and minefields.
In February 1945, I was already a corporal in a mortar company, when I broke through the enemy’s defenses, I came under fire, I managed to destroy the Nazi easel mortar, but was wounded – there were several fragments in my body. At first, out of a fever, I ran a little, then fell, I could not go further. The soldiers took it to the raincoat and carried it to the medical unit. They bandaged it there, took out two large fragments (they gave them as a keepsake, I kept them for a long time, but then I lost them). In the morning I woke up – my leg was swollen, the doctor came, the X-ray was done, it turned out that there were still fragments left, they began to operate again.Then they loaded me, along with other wounded, sent to the sorting point, loaded into a train and drove around the country: they brought me to Moscow – there were no places, to Kazan – there were no places, then to Gorky, a hospital was opened there at the school, we went there. Therefore, I met the Victory Day already in the hospital. The leg was amputated, there were multiple fractures of the pelvic bones.
Later I was discharged, returned, again drafted into the army, my military unit was located near Leningrad, the Devyatkino railway station. They assigned me to a separate special-purpose battalion, worked at the headquarters, dealt with documents, accounting for personnel.Then I was sent to courses and awarded an officer rank. After the war, I stayed in military structures, served in Pskov, Smolensk, Leningrad, Tallinn, Arkhangelsk, and in 1972 due to illness I was transferred to the reserve with the rank of major.

SHCHEGLOV ALEXANDR PETROVICH, 25.11.1927
When the war began I was 14 years old.Our family lived in the village of Vysokoe, Mosalsky District, Kaluga Region. In October 1941, the village ended up in German-occupied territory. There was panic, communication was bad, they thought that the Germans were far away, but their tanks had already entered the village. The Nazis immediately slaughtered all the geese and chickens, took away fur coats and warm clothes from people.
In January 1942, the Germans were driven away. The battles were fought right on our street – on the one hand, ours, on the other, the Germans. I remember how we boys ran to the basement, and the Germans shot at us and laughed.
The village passed from hand to hand a couple of times. One house burned down in this shootout. Then came Belov’s cavalry, half-starved guys, their headquarters was in our house. Everyone slept on the floor, there was a full house of soldiers. Then, I know, they all died, were surrounded by Vyazma. The cannon stood right in our yard, there was a dugout.
After the liberation of the village, in the summer of 1942, we were sent to an aviation plant in Omsk, where we worked and studied at a vocational school. But I really wanted to go home, I thought that I would be more useful in my native land, for my people.And my friend and I ran away one day. The first time I was returned, but on the second attempt I returned to my village – I came home all black, because I was traveling on a train carrying coal.
Father went to the front, was in the infantry, served until the end of the war, reached Germany. My father had four brothers – a mortarman, an artilleryman, one brother was a pilot, he served in Khabarovsk. By the end of the war, he was transferred to the Kursk Bulge, where he died. My father was wounded in the leg, but remained at the front.
When I heard about my father’s injury, I also wanted to go to the front, fight and defend my homeland.But then they didn’t take me, they took me only after I was 17 years old. In 1944, I turned 17 and was drafted into the army. Most of all, my mother was happy, because she wanted me to be full and busy. The service took place in the city of Kalinin. He got into signalmen, finished sergeant courses, then – brigade school, received the rank of senior sergeant. The regiment we were sent to was mostly female, we had to replace the women, who were already beginning to slowly release from the front. When the war ended, at night the lieutenant lifted us up and told everyone the good news.Everyone was happy, congratulated each other, no one could fully realize that everything was really over.
Served in Kalinin until 1947. Then we were sent to the Astrakhan region, to Kapustny Yar, where we were building a test site for missile weapons, the first Soviet ballistic and anti-aircraft missiles. They lived in the steppe, in tents.
In 1951 he returned to his native village, but soon left for Shcherbinka near Moscow, got a job at a refractory plant and worked there until 2004.First he graduated from the evening school, the Podolsk Engineering College, then, in 1968, the correspondence civil engineering institute, specializing in “cold metal working technician”. He worked as a rammer, foreman of locksmiths. But he always remembered the wartime, sometimes woke up with fear that the war had started again. We went through a very terrible time, but thanks to the solidarity of the people and the resilience of people, we were able to win, and now you live under a clear, blue sky. But, in general, I had an interesting life …

Yandulsky Vladimir Vyacheslavovich, 05/03/1928
I lived in Ukraine, in the Zhitomir region, in the village of Kurchitskaya Guta. When the war began, I was 13 years old. In 1941, the Zhytomyr region was occupied by the Nazis (it was 1000 km before the front line). In our village, German troops shot all Jews, Communists, Komsomol members who did not have time to leave, and burned down their houses.
I was on the list for sending to Germany, so I was hiding in the forest, living in a hut, my parents brought food from the village.
In the forest he met with partisans. I began to ask to join their detachment and received the assignment to scout the location of the German garrison in a neighboring city, report two weeks later, they made an appointment at the same place. My friend Semyon lived near that city. Together with him we took two sheets of paper in a cage and began to draw the location of the German garrison: on Lenin Street – the commandant’s house, the house of the police chief, at the school – German barracks, in the market – artillery, in the park – a platoon of tanks (three tanks), the location of sentries …Then Semyon offered to go to the other side of the river and see the location of the sentries there. In case they stopped, we figured out what to say, as if a friend took his bike.
We crossed the river, approached a friend’s house (it was a village house, 30 meters from the road). Semyon entered, and I remained on the doorstep. There were several elderly women in the house. Semyon went into the entrance and began to take the bike. At that moment, I turned around and saw how a light machine gun was thrown over the fence and pointed at me. I managed to deviate.A German entered the house, began to ask the women, first in Ukrainian, then in Polish, if there were strangers. They knew the seeds, but they saw me for the first time. The German came up to me and began to search. And on my stomach were hidden two pieces of paper with the location of the garrison. The German began to slap his hands in his pockets, at that moment I was already neither alive nor dead. The Germans often hung offenders by the ribs on hooks right in the city – to intimidate local residents. Fortunately, nothing was found. The Germans went on, and we stood for a long time and came to our senses.
I decided not to go back through the city, but to go around through the forest, I almost came to the village, when I saw that several partisans were hiding behind the trees. They immediately started asking where they went, where they came from and why. He explained that I was from this village, and went to the city to ask my aunt for some food. That food didn’t have, so I returned home empty-handed.
At the last house I noticed three cannons. The partisans shot the policemen. The partisans took me to the first house, asked the owner if he knew me? The owner confirmed that he knows, and I really am from this village.It turned out that the partisans were stationed in our village (about three detachments). Ten people settled in each house.
I began to ask to be taken to the commander, then they put me on a cart and taken to the end of the village to the post office, where the commander was stationed. There were sentries at the entrance. I showed the commander a drawn map of the location of the Germans in the city. He praised, and I recalled that they promised to take me into the partisans. The commander said that they would definitely take it. I did not have parents, I was brought up by my uncle and aunt.First of all, I went to their house to tell them that I had been admitted to the partisan detachment. Upon hearing this news, my aunt began to cry, and my uncle supported my decision.
So I joined the Shitov partisan unit, in which I fought until October 1943, was in a reconnaissance group, participated in many operations, in battles to defeat German garrisons, undermine roads and echelons. First of all, the Germans, who were located in the same city, were defeated. The battles were fought at night, after midnight. At first, artillery always appeared, the barracks in which the Germans lived were captured.The Germans immediately fled, leaving both their clothes and weapons in their barracks. (This is why the partisans were often dressed in German uniforms.) The Germans were very afraid even of the word “partisans”. Among the partisans, such operations were called “economic”. They cleared the city of the Germans, took food, clothing, weapons and went back to the forest.
In 1943, the command of the headquarters of the partisan movement in Moscow issued an order that all underage partisans should be sent to the “mainland”. At that time I was in Belarus.Every night, planes flew in and brought weapons, explosives, machine guns, and they took seriously wounded partisans back, who could not be helped in the field. With such an aircraft, I was sent to Kaluga – this was already a liberated territory, there was a military airport. The seriously wounded were taken away and taken by car to the hospital. Before leaving, I was handed a military description, which was written by the Hero of the Soviet Union Malyshev. The regiment commander read it and decided to send me to the Suvorov Military School in Moscow.So I ended up in Moscow. However, the recruitment to the Suvorov School had already been completed by that time, it was already October, I did not have time to enter there and went to study at the railway school.
Then he studied at the Moscow Automotive Technical School, graduated from the Plant-VTUZ at the Likhachev Automobile Plant. He worked at ZIL for 32 years, starting as a fitter and finishing as a shop manager. Then he worked as the head of the garage at the Ministry of Electronics, deputy director of the plant. I have the title of “Veteran of Labor”.I am the head of the Council of Veterans of the Chertanovo-Yuzhnoye region, I teach the Lessons of Courage, I try to tell the younger generation about the price that the Soviet people had to pay for the victory in the Great Patriotic War.

YARYGIN ALEXANDER PETROVICH, 03.01.1926
Born in the village of Maksy, Ryazan region. Dad worked as a chauffeur, mom was a housewife, during the war she worked as a nurse in a hospital.
In 1941 I finished the 7th grade. My classmates and I recently passed exams. They came to us and said that the war had begun. All agricultural workers (tractor drivers and combine operators) were taken into the army, so we, schoolchildren, had to study in these specialties in order to replace them. We were sent to the town of Sapozhok, Ryazan Region, which was located 35 kilometers from our village, where there was a mechanization school.The older guys went to study to be tractor drivers. And I was the youngest, they sent me to the girls – to the combiner. We were put behind a combine harvester attached to a tractor. Wheat stalks were constantly hammering the drum, and I was often asked to clean it. This was the beginning of my independent life in harvesting the 41st year.
When I turned 17, I was drafted into the army. In 1943, they sent us to study in the city of Chebarkul, Chelyabinsk region, but they taught us not at all what was needed in the war.By coincidence, I was sent to the infantry. A company of 200 people. Once we were lined up in two lines, behind me was a soldier from the hospital. He asked: “What is your education?” I answered: “Nine classes.” The soldier said that most likely they would take me into the artillery. And I only saw her in the movies. There was also an artillery regiment next to us, which I sometimes just walked past. And for sure … The captain came up, asked about education and said that he would take it to his battery. The guy from the hospital didn’t see again, he must have been sent to another unit.
I got to the front in June 1944. I had General Grabin’s 76mm divisional cannon. Stalin loved the general, do you know why? Grabin improved the combat capability of the gun, reduced its weight from 2500 to 1200 kg, there was a big saving in metal.
I was the gunner of the gun of the 159th division, I had no right to move even a millimeter away from the gun, I constantly watched all the levers. During the war, I knocked out 4 tanks. Of course, this is not much, those who started fighting earlier destroyed much more (10-20 vehicles each).
In 1945, our army went on the offensive. On February 12, we started a heavy battle, during which we liberated one of the villages. As I remember now, a half-destroyed shed, from behind which a tank drove out. We knocked out the tank with the first shot. At that time, a second tank jumped out from the other side of the shed, which I did not notice. He smashed my gun. I was saved only by the fact that the gun has an armor shield about one and a half meters. And to protect the legs, there is a separate leaf at the bottom, which must be stepped on.When transporting it, they fold it, and during the battle I did not have time to pick it up in time. The shell fragments hit my feet. Your business, you yourself must completely protect yourself. Then I ended up in a hospital near Istenburg (now Chernyakhovsk, Kaliningrad region). The wound was minor, stayed there for several days and – again to the front.
Arrived on the Frish-Nerung spit, along the Baltic Sea coast, participated in a naval landing operation. We went around the spit to prevent German soldiers from crossing the strait.There were protracted battles, during which I found myself far from my unit. I came to the commandant of one of their cities. There they tell me: go straight, there you can cross a river 5-6 meters wide on the board … I come, but there is no board. I went down to the river, crossed to the other side along with clothes, boots and a backpack, the water was chest-deep somewhere, and a very strong current that almost knocked me off my feet. I went ashore, and there were German antipersonnel mines. I got scared. Then, after catching his breath a little, he assessed the situation and saw that the mines had been defused.Probably our sappers did their best. After that, I finally found my piece. I met Victory Day in a hospital, 11-12 km from Kaunas (Lithuania).
From July 1945 he served in the 5th Air Force of Long-Range Aviation. In 1953 he was demobilized with the rank of sergeant. The army was allowed to graduate from high school, at the same time he got married. Then he entered the technical school, studied full-time for 2.5 years and received a specialty. He worked at a research institute, first as a junior research assistant, at the same time studied at a civil engineering institute, then became a chief technologist at a research institute.Participated in the construction of an airfield at Sheremetyevo, built an airfield in Guinea and a house-building plant in Afghanistan. For a quarter of a century he headed the transport department at the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences.
Awards: Order of the Patriotic War, II degree; medals “For Military Merit”, “For Courage”, “For Victory over Germany”, etc.

90,000 Competitions for boys on February 23rd at primary school.February at elementary school
Participants are divided into teams. In 5 minutes, the team must prepare a list of items that must be taken with them on a military campaign. However, the listed items should not exceed the size of the backpack itself. Then the teams announce their rosters and the team with the larger roster wins.
Relay for the strong
Boys are divided into two teams (if there are too many participants, then there may be more teams).Each of the participants needs to get to the goal and back, passing the baton to the next participant, but each will do it differently: the first participants on one leg, the second – with their backs forward, the third – “squatting”, the fourth – on all fours, the fifth – 3 times push-ups at the start and then running. The team that completes the relay faster than the others will win.
Experts in military affairs
Each participant in turn names one of the categories of weapons or vehicles, and the participant must answer that it is, for example, AK-47 – machine gun, TU-144 – airplane, T-64 – tank, and so on Further.For the correct answer, the participant receives a point and the winner is the one who gives the most correct answers.
Many flags are hidden in the room in advance. Participants of the competition are looking for them and for each flag found they receive from the presenter one letter from the word “FOLLOWER”. Whoever makes a word out of letters faster is the winner. Care must be taken that the number of letter sets is equal to the number of participants.
It is necessary to prepare a sound recording in advance, consisting of different sounds in turn – the noise of water, barking dogs, singing birds, squeaking doors, sounds of cars, and so on.The participants of the competition reproduce some sound and award a point to the one who guesses its source first. The radio operator with the most points wins.
Escaping from captivity
Participants are divided into pairs and each participant in a pair is tied at the back of the hand. At the start command, the participants of each pair must rescue each other from captivity and untie each other’s hands. Whoever can do it faster than the others, those guys won.
Participants are divided into teams.One of the teams receives blue markers, the other red. A poster with many small boats depicted on it is hung in front of them. Participants take turns throwing an open marker from a distance of several steps, trying to get them into the ship. The team that “knocked out” more ships wins.
A “blind sniper” is selected from among the participants. He becomes in the center, and the rest form a circle around him. At the command “Start” the participants pass a bell to each other, and the “blind sniper” must grab exactly the one with whom he is at the moment.The participant caught with the bell becomes the next “blind sniper”.
Cleanliness and order
The army loves cleanliness and order, moreover, if order is established very quickly. For this competition, you will need paper figures (circle, square, triangle, rectangle, rhombus). Each figure must be at least 10. And for each participant both the total number and the number of each figure are the same. At the command “start”, the guys begin to put things in order: you need to fold the triangles into a foot of triangles, circles into a foot of circles, and so on.Who of the boys will cope faster, he will win.
Every day on February 23, everything is getting closer and closer. And the time to cook something is less and less. And if you already have no time to prepare the program for February 23 in elementary school, then we will help you. Today, funny and interesting contests for boys for February 23, which you can hold in elementary school, have been prepared for you. Watch contests, arrange them for your boys and let them enjoy the holiday.
In the first competition we will test the strength of our young defenders of the fatherland. To do this, you need at least two juice packs. It is desirable to pack at least 1 liter. The first boy takes one package in each hand and spreads his arms to the sides. So he must hold the juice packs for some time, for example, 20 seconds. And so is every boy. The one who was able to keep it goes to the next round. There they already need to hold the packages in this way for 25 seconds. And so on, until there is only one winner.
And the winner can get these juice packs as a prize.
The next competition is held in two stages (more is possible, it already depends on you). In the first step, each boy needs to make five paper airplanes. And not just make, but also paint them in your own colors. After the jury (girls and teachers) determine who made the most beautiful airplanes.
The second stage of the competition – you need to throw your airplanes at the target. For example, you can make a goal – place cubes and make a tower.And from a certain distance you need to get into the tower with your airplanes. You can also do something like a bridge: top and bottom. And throw planes so that they fly between the upper and lower bridge. Whoever can complete the task more times won.
Everyone, well, or many people know that in the army you need to dress quickly. For now, our young defenders are unlikely to be able to fulfill this standard, but they can test their speed and speed. To do this, you need to divide the boys into two teams of the same number of people.Each team is given a rope five meters long (if there are many participants in the team, then the rope is longer). At the command of the leader, each team must “put on” the rope over itself. That is, you can pass the rope through the sleeves or through the pants. The winner is the team that will be the first to “link” all team members in this way.
This is what we called the next competition. Each team has one boy and one girl. And also you need to make paper fish. Each team needs 10 of these fish.The net will be a scarf with a length of at least two meters. The boy and the girl move away from each other at a distance of about 1.5 meters. A basin is placed near the girl and fish lie in it. The boy’s task is to hold one end of the scarf in his hand, and throw the other so that it falls into the basin. As soon as the scarf hit the basin, the girl attaches exactly five fish to the scarf with paper clips. When there are five fish on the scarf, the boy takes out his net and removes these fish. Then he again tries to throw his net into the basin. When he threw it a second time, the girl hooks up the other five fish.And the boy takes out the net and takes off the fish. Whoever can do all this faster wins the friendly fishing!
By the way, you can use ordinary clothespins instead of fish, but fish are still better.
In the next competition the boys will have to bring food and feed the girls. For the competition, you need to make a small obstacle course. You don’t need to invent anything complicated, just put the pins so that you can get around them with a snake. There are two boys and two girls in the team.The first boys take an inflated balloon, squeeze it between their legs and so they must go around all the pins, go to the table and take a packet of cookies. And go back with the pack, while the ball should remain between the legs. When the first one returned, the second boy takes the ball from him and also goes through the entire route. Only on the table does he take a carton of milk. And also comes back. When the second boy returned, the girls began to eat cookies and wash them down with milk. When one of the teams has eaten all the cookies and drank the milk, they become the winners of the competition.
In this competition, boys will play and girls will eat delicious cookies and drink milk. Everyone will be interested.

2. Develop the ability to work in a team.

Defender of the Fatherland Day. Scenario for junior schoolchildren
Scenario of the competition program for boys by February 23 “Knight’s Tournament”
(On the stage there is a “scoreboard” on which points are applied. The song “It’s time – let’s rejoice in our age” from the movie “D” Artagnan and the Three Musketeers “sounds. 4 boys appear, dressed as musketeers, and while song, they are fencing, and at the end of the song they take off their hats and bow to everyone present.)
. Good afternoon, dear beautiful ladies and courageous knights! A knight’s tournament will take place in this hall today. Before we start the competition, let’s remember some of the rules that have come to us from ancient times.
. You all know that the handshake arose in the Middle Ages, when knights, when they met, showing their peaceful intentions, took off their glove and stretched their hand forward, exposing their palm, thereby showing that there were no weapons there.Also, when they met, they took off their headdress. The lady was never a knight, so these rules had nothing to do with her. However, today we notice that this rule is beginning to apply to the beautiful half of humanity: women, when shaking hands, take off their gloves and do not take off only the one that is very thin and tightly fits the hand; they also take off their headdress if their outer clothing is removed. How do you explain the existence of such rules? Do they make sense?
(Students find ethical and hygienic meaning in the emerging rules of behavior.The situation can be played out. At the same time, attention is drawn to the fact that the boys first take off their headdress, followed by the top coat, the girls first the coat, then the headdress.)
As you know, the rule to walk in front of your companion, going up and down the stairs, arose during candlelight times, when a man walked in front, holding a candle in his hand, and illuminated the path for the lady. The lighting is currently electric. This need has disappeared.But the rule still remained. Why? Maybe it’s time to cancel it?
(Students justify the need for this rule by the fact that if necessary, you can help your companion. This situation can be played out.)
. And now we begin the knightly tournament. We ask the jury to take their places.
(The presenter introduces the members of the jury and brings them to the oath (oath): “I, (such and such), swear to judge honestly and impartially.”)
.The beautiful half of humanity begins to hold contests.
(Girls hold contests in pairs, announcing their names.)
Questions are asked in turn, for each correct answer – 1 point.
1. What do trees and a rifle have in common? (Barrel.)
2. Why are the spear and the shield – inseparable friends and enemies? (They are always together, but at the same time the shield protects, the spear strikes.)
3. Whose words are these: “Hard in learning – easy in battle”? (A.Suvorov.)
4. Whose words are these: “Who will come to us with the sword, by the sword will also perish”? (Alexander Nevsky.)
5. What is the name of a teenager on a ship who studies maritime affairs and prepares to become a sailor? (Jung.)
6. What are the names of shoulder insignia in the Russian army and navy? (Shoulder straps, epaulettes.)
Competition “Portrait of a Lady”
In the old days, knights always carried with them a portrait of their beloved lady, which they often painted themselves. Please draw at least such a sketchy portrait.
Competition “The most agile”
Attributes: nails, hammer, wood block. Every boy is given a chance to test his sleight of hand. You need to hammer a nail into a wooden block with one blow.
Participants are given cards with words. They need to explain the meaning of these words. For example: “Katyusha”, infantry, Reichstag; counteroffensive, reconnaissance, “son of the regiment” …
The task of the “knight”: to drive up to the lady (or rather, to the portrait he just painted) on a horse and very seriously, without a shadow of a smile, say as many compliments as possible.
Participants receive a “horse” – a stuffed sock is put on the mop, ears, eyes, mane are pinned. “Horse” can be offered to children to make themselves right there from the materials at hand. Compliments take turns. Points are awarded based on the number of “unsmiling” compliments.
Competition “The most economical”
Attributes: knives, potatoes, wood planks, waste bowls. 3-4 boys take part in the competition at the same time. They should peel the potatoes and cut them into strips.
Boys should invite girls to dance. The jury must take into account the moment of the invitation to the dance, the process of the dance and the moment of the end of the dance (the gentleman must take the lady to her place and say goodbye to her with a bow of his head).
Competition “The most courageous”
Attributes: 2 bananas, 1 onion. Participants are encouraged to eat sweet and bitter at the same time (for example, a banana and half a head of onion at the same time).
. The knightly tournament has come to an end.The jury has already summed up the results. It remains to present prizes and gifts along with the “Royal Decree”. I ask all “knights” to line up!
(Leading 2 reads out the “Royal Decree” *. Girls who held the contests present each “knight” with a gift, put a chocolate medal around their necks and present the decree.)
Our dear boys! We congratulate you on Defender of the Fatherland Day! We hope that the beautiful half of humanity will always find valiant knights and defenders in your face!
back to the beginning?
Peculiarities of German life, or In “captivity” by the Germans
The first days in the new apartment were spent on getting used to the order established here and on getting to know its inhabitants more closely.Frau Erica’s husband turned out to be a man 12-15 years older than her, with a very calm, reasonable character. Herr Otto was laconic, but not withdrawn, he spoke slowly, a little in a stretch, as if enjoying every word he said. Almost gray and with some yellowness covering his face, he gave the impression of a sickly person. Nevertheless, I constantly saw him doing something about the house: he was working in the garden, he was repairing home furniture and children’s toys, then he was busy with the receiver or helping his wife.He told me that he was not drafted to the war because of his disability. Working from childhood in potash mines, first as a simple worker and then as a foreman, he injured his respiratory tract and was fired with a good pension. For some time he did not work, studying accounting, and then he was again taken to the mine, but already in the position of an accountant. I bought the house long before the war in installments and paid for it in full. It was evident that he very much loves his wife, children and values family comfort. The eldest daughter Katrin is fond of music, she is already 12 years old, next year she will graduate from a music school.Selma is 10 years old, a very athletic girl, runs well, swims, loves acrobatics and gymnastics. And the youngest, father’s seven-year-old favorite, Jurgen, is not childishly serious, for two years now he has been reading and drawing well, playing chess, helping his mother take care of flowers. Herr Otto regrets that he got married late and fears for the fate of his children because of his illness. As for Frau Erika, her image is preserved in my memory as a model of a German woman, wife, mother and mistress of the house. She loves her husband and treats him with great respect – this is felt in every movement, in every word or gesture.Children are always dressed very neatly and simply, they breathe some kind of extraordinary purity. They are surprisingly obedient and helpful, parents never have harsh conversations with them in a raised voice. How it is possible – for me it remained a mystery. Frau Erika maintains the house in exemplary order – not a speck or speck of dust can be seen anywhere. The glass on the windows is so transparent that they simply cannot be seen. Everything in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the toilet is shiny, as if it was just bought in a store. She adhered to the same cult of bed that I observed in Frau Charlotte’s apartment in Berlin.The same tall, downy bed with the scent of fresh air. Whenever I go home in the middle of the day, the window in the bedroom is open, the entire bed is thrown over the window opening and breathes air, it is gaining freshness. In the evening everything is made up, a basin of water and a towel are prepared.
The first days I was somehow not interested in the distribution of the area of this house among its tenants, but later I learned that the whole family lives with me on the second floor, and the first floor is occupied by a certain Kurilo with his family.Kurilo, one of the Soviet civilian specialists, worked as the director of a plant for the restoration of technology for the production and assembly of the FAU-2 rocket, called “Verk-dry” or plant number three. This family turned out to be so closed and non-contact that I never managed to exchange a few words with at least one of them. I have not seen them either in the garden or anywhere else. Either the syndrome of German enemies-occupiers was deeply embedded in them, or this family was characterized by a manner of special alienation from everything around it.
Herr Otto once explained to me that the difficult financial situation forced them to make room. I suggested that he not be ashamed of my presence and use the office-dining room at his own discretion, at least when I was not at home, to which he replied that he took all the books he needed there, and he didn’t need anything else. Sometimes in the evenings I had a small company, Nikolai, our translators, someone else would come, and this did not cause any irritation on the part of the owners.Two or three times guests came from Berlin and from Sommerda, where the design part of our work was concentrated. In general, life entered a certain rut and proceeded without any excesses, worries and worries. Quite often I thought of Renata and Frau Elsa, but, remembering their persuasive pleas, refrained from visiting their home.
Looking closely at the way of life, at the way of life of German families, of a German city, I made interesting discoveries that either astonished or admired. I already wrote that Nikolai photographed a lot.We handed over the film in the studio. During the entire time of our stay in Bleicherode, I do not remember a single case when an order was not completed on time. You will be returned a neatly packed film, ordered photos in a branded envelope, and on the envelope – a record of the number of frames and the number of copies, indicating the cost and date of production. At the end of the twentieth century, all this may not seem so surprising to us, but more than fifty years ago, against the background of our “service”, it seemed to us something incredible.
All of us there gradually got used to always having beer, soda or seltzer at home. It was enough to call the factory and give an order, as exactly at the appointed time everything ordered will be brought to your house, they will take away empty dishes and leave a postcard with gratitude and a form for the next order, which you can either send by mail, or bring in yourself, or fill out and leave for their next visit. You can pay whenever you want – in advance, upon delivery, or take on credit. The delivery card will necessarily contain an extract from your account – how much more of your money is left in the company or how much you owe it at the moment.I never had to make a second reminder about the order made. Marvelous? For us – yes! I want to remind you once again that all this took place in a war-exhausted country, most of the male population of which either died on the war fronts or was serving a sentence in captivity. How could you not be surprised?
I can not help but describe the procedure for the rationing of ration cards, which I have witnessed more than once. I saw Frau Erika sitting in the kitchen with an adding machine and these very cards and doing something.I ask:
– What are you doing, Frau Erica?
– I’m going to go to the store, buy groceries for three days.
– What do you think?
– How what? – she was surprised, – I cannot live without precise calculation, because the rate is very small.
– So go and buy what is now in the store for the whole month, – I advised her, – and tomorrow you will look for something else – but she did not understand me at all and objected:
– Why would I buy for a whole month, Herr Rifat? I’ll go and buy what I need for three days.
– But you may not get what you need, Frau Erica! We also live at home by cards and we know what that means. Therefore, when they give something good, we immediately buy for the whole month in reserve. And tomorrow we’ll buy something else, – I tried to teach her.
– What do you mean “give something good” – I don’t understand that. I always buy what I need and as much as I need for a few days, because I know what I will cook today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. Here’s my menu – take a look, and here’s what I’m going to buy.
She wrote: rice – 200 g, margarine – 200 g, vegetable oil – 100 g, sugar – 300 g, milk powder – 50 g, egg powder – 50 g, flour – 500 g, meat for soup – 300 g, minced beef – 300 g, sausages – 300 g, cookies – 100 g.
I was amazed by this list and asked again:
– And if something does not appear?
– Why not? That’s what these cards are for, Herr Rifat.
– Is it convenient for you to buy 50 g of milk powder or 100 g of butter every time?
– For me it is better if these products are stored in the store, and not at my house, and I buy them fresh.And besides, what would happen if all residents wanted to buy all the products a month in advance? Everyone understands this very well, – said Frau Erika and teased me: – Don’t you do the same?
What could I answer? I ran into it myself. I realized that it is not customary for them to give barley grits instead of rice, and instead of butter – vegetable oil, which tastes and smells like machine grease. You cannot replace sugar with caramel, and meat with tripe or liver. And so they have no idea about such a subject as “string bag”.
Several times I deliberately stopped near a grocery store, which for some reason never had queues with angry and sarcastic quarrels. Here comes a young mother with a baby carriage, greets the saleswoman sweetly, gives the same note that Frau Erica worked on, her ration cards, money – paper stamps and some pfennings (that is, kopecks) and a handbag or basket. She herself goes out to the baby and calmly waits. After a while, the saleswoman takes out a basket with neatly packed bags, the women throw two or three words about something and say goodbye with a smile.At first I thought they were kind, close acquaintances. But about the same thing happened with almost every customer. Some left their “documents” and containers and went on their other business at all, and then went to buy their purchases. I thought: is it possible with us?
We have all heard a lot not only about German punctuality and accuracy, but also about their economy and frugality. I will not be original if I once again mention the lighting system of entrances and staircases. In multi-storey buildings, it is customary to press a certain button at the entrance, depending on the time it takes you to go up to the desired floor and enter your apartment.After a minute, the light will go out. Or, as you climb, the light below will go out, and on the next flight it will light up. The same thing, only in reverse order, happens during the descent. Do we need to be so trifling when there are so many things around! Perhaps this is one of the reasons for the Russian national character?
I constantly compared, even without my desire, the life and behavior of the Germans with what is being done in our country, and almost always, unfortunately, such a comparison turned out to be not in our favor.
I will share one more interesting observation – we will talk about the provision of dwellings with fuel. I have already written what obstacles we had to overcome in order to get a few cubic meters of raw firewood to heat our house. It was late autumn, when one day a truck loaded with firewood stopped at the gate of the house. A man came out of it, called and waited. The latch worked, as always, and Frau Erica immediately appeared. I was already on my way to work, but I stopped and walked over to them.
– Good morning, are you Frau Kleinhof? – asked the man and, without waiting for an answer, continued: – We brought firewood for the last three months.
– Thank you, – answered Frau Erica.
– You are entitled to one and a half cubic meters. Saw them up or take them whole?
– Please cut 40 centimeters, – asked the hostess.
It was good birch firewood, two and a half or three meters long, all even, not very thick – in general, what you need. In this I understood a lot.
Two more men got out of the cab of the truck, opened the right and rear sides, one of them quickly unwound the electric cord (or cable) and connected to the network using an outlet that was on the electric pole behind a special door, and the other prepared the disk saw, which was located right there on the floor of the truck. Two began to cut wood immediately, and the third kept counting in his notebook. The corresponding volume was recorded on the end face of each log.The sawn chicks were thrown onto the road. All this took about 15 minutes. Then they again asked the hostess whether it was necessary to chop the wood or bring it in without chopping. Frau Erika asked to split. On the road, they threw down wide block-stands, on which it was convenient to chop wood, picked up cleavers, very similar to ours, but with longer handles, and very competently and, I would say, beautifully coped with this task. Then they began to stack the chopped wood in a rather wide wicker basket with two handles to carry them to the shed, but Frau Erika offered them a comfortable wheelbarrow.When all the firewood was neatly stacked, another question followed:
– Will you take the sawdust? Where should they be carried?
– No, – answered Frau Erika, – I have enough of them since last time.
“Thank you very much,” the guys said, quickly put the sawdust into their bag, cleanly swept the “scene of the incident” and drove to the next house. When they drove off, not a single trace of what had happened here a minute before was left in the workplace. “This is work, this is organization, this is order,” I thought.”Will we ever reach that level?”
In the evening of the same day, I inquired about the heating system. Herr Otto invited me and showed everything in action. The water in the system was heated by a heating unit, which worked both from firewood and from peat briquettes or coal. But they did not have coal for a long time, since all of it went to industrial facilities. I saw a peat briquette for the first time in my life. He praised the system for its economy, but noted that the water cools down overnight, and by morning on cold days the temperature in the house drops noticeably.“There is never a severe frost here,” said Herr Otto, “so there’s nothing to worry about. Of course, it would be better to have natural gas or an electric heating stove, but now it will not be soon – war,” he concluded his explanations.
– Herr Otto, there is gas in Jena, – I suddenly remembered.
“Yes,” he agreed, “he was in Jena even before the war, but we do not know when he will be.
Another time I witnessed the delivery of a peat briquette. The same truck, but equipped not with a power saw, but with scales, the most common floor scales, on which goods are weighed in warehouses and wholesale depots.Peat briquettes are placed in the same wicker baskets, but trimmed with dense fabric on top, weighed right in front of your eyes and taken to the place you indicated. A piece of road and sidewalk are immediately swept, and no trace remains. The workers themselves are in fairly clean branded overalls, polite, pleasant people. I imagined for a minute how it might look in our country if they suddenly guessed to adopt the entire German experience. You would be visited by several people with swollen eyes and motionless misty eyes, dressed dirty, whoever got into anything.They would either not open the sides of the car, or the scales would jam, or the shovel would break. Mentioning at every step your parents, mainly on the maternal side, girls of easy virtue and some parts of the human body that had nothing to do with this process, they would have done the job half-and-half, saying goodbye: “Master, will there be a maharich?” Having received the coveted half a liter or the corresponding cash equivalent, they would drive off, leaving behind huge streaks of dark brown dust on the road and a long path of the same dust all the way to your barn.Then, for a whole month, you would gradually drag this dirt home on the soles of your shoes, sometimes in the form of dust, sometimes as brown slurry. Sometimes I think: “What would have happened if the Germans had won, of course, without Hitler, or, say, the French?”
A purely German approach to life was felt in some other matters. Once in a small stationery store, I saw a lot of announcements about the exchange of things. One offered to exchange a baby carriage for a bicycle, another exchanged a radio for an accordion, a third wanted a garden cart in exchange for a tea set.But there were also announcements for small things: cookbooks, school bags, books, sheet music, harmonicas, umbrellas, binoculars, various gardening tools, tools, etc. There was a section for the exchange of clothes: shoes, coats, raincoats, hats, sweaters, etc. You could exchange anything for such goods as cigarettes, sugar, butter, chocolate. For example, there, in exchange, I acquired an excellent slide rule from the Ritz company, which is still in perfect condition today. In the same place I bought a demi-season coat, a decent jacket, a beautiful cut for a light suit, the first watch of the Swiss company Bulla in my life, several ties and some other trifle.For some reason, we do not practice such activities, although the people live much worse than in Germany. Are we too lazy to do this or are we ashamed? It’s much better than stealing.
More and more often I began to notice in this “tauschen-point”, that is, the exchange point, our people, who got a taste for such small-scale entrepreneurial activity. It turned out that you can inquire about larger objects there. Among us was one eccentric man named Leimer Arkady Ludvigovich – a descendant of the Germans who settled in Russia.His activities were mainly limited to the accumulation of money to buy a used car that could be taken to Russia. Whenever I met him, he asked the same question: “What do you think, buy me a cool car or a goat?” The “cool” car meant the “Opel-cadet” of those times, from which the very first model of the small-displacement “Moskvich” was copied, and the “goat” meant the German front-line analogue of the “Willis”. The Germans were very surprised that Arkady Ludvigovich did not understand a word in German.It seems that he still bought himself a “cool” car through this very “taushen-point”.
Another curious incident comes to mind. Once one of the German colleagues with the most serious air asked me: is it true that barons have survived to this day in the Soviet Union?
– Of course not, – I replied, – why are you so interested in this?
“But the name of your gas rudder specialist is Von Aref, if I’m not mistaken,” he explained his doubts.
It was hard not to burst out laughing here.
– His surname is not Fon-Aref, but Fonarev, – I answered, – from the Russian word “lantern”, that is, a lamp.
The German looked at me incredulously, as if sensing a catch. But I, too, put on a preoccupied face and said with the most serious air:
– However, maybe he is a baron, but in this way he decided to hide his origin from the Soviet regime.
The German appreciated the humor, and we laughed together for a long time. After that, when we met, we greeted each other not with the generally accepted word “malzeit”, but “von aref”.
In general, there are jokes about some stupidity of the Germans, their weakness in terms of humor, but my observations do not confirm this opinion. I have had many occasions to be convinced of the opposite. Of course, humor is an area in which purely linguistic features play an important role, so I did not always manage to grasp the zest in the subtleties of the language. But little by little I learned some idiomatic expressions, and Nikolai helped me a lot to memorize many words, as he took the habit of mixing Russian words with German ones, and I picked up this innovation.I think that at least ten percent of the words in our Russian speech were replaced by German ones with ridiculous distortions. I will give a few examples that are firmly etched into my memory.
“Will you finish your bericht (report) soon?”
“I need to pick up some kind of civilian antsug (civilian suit).”
“Don’t you want to play a little (take a walk, from the word” shpatsiren “- walk)?”
“You don’t have a sharpener: is the pin (pencil) broken?”
“You seem to have bought yourself a good mantel (coat)?”
“They say they brought wardrobe trunks (suitcases) to our store”.
“Do you have some old Zeitungs (newspapers)?”
“Open wider your augen (eyes)!”
“He seems to be a little kranken (sick).”
“Everything will be international (in order)”.
“Could you replay (play) this melody again?”
“We must go and get our lebensmittel (food, literally ‘means of subsistence’)”.
“I spent the whole evening in my vonung (dwelling).”
“Let’s move this case to dynstag (Tuesday).”
“I would like to sit with my dolmecherin (translator) for a while.”
And words such as yavol (yes), beshtimt (of course, certainly), gleich (soon, right there), augenblik (instantly), moment mal (a second), ungefer (approximately), unmöglich (impossible), filyaicht (maybe) a number of others have completely replaced the corresponding Russian words from our colloquial speech. It was both fun and rewarding.
Days passed, I lived in a new apartment for the second month and was very pleased.During this time, I never once appeared at Renata and Frau Elsa’s, although I often recalled them. One Sunday afternoon, after a good night’s sleep and having completed the morning toilet over a basin in his bedroom, he opened the door to enter the dining room-study. My attention was immediately drawn to a large oval table, on which there was usually a vase with fresh flowers, but now it was unusually beautifully served: in the middle there was a very beautiful pie, vases with apples, pears and grapes, plates, wine glasses, forks, napkins. While I was looking at all this in complete bewilderment, the front door suddenly opened, and the whole family entered the room – the children in front, and behind them Herr Otto and Frau Erika.I remembered that everyone had joyful faces, but I had no idea about the reason for such a festive mood and looked at them with surprise. Suddenly, as if on command, they said in unison:
– Dear Herr Rifat, we sincerely congratulate you on your birthday and wish you health, happiness and good!
With these words they handed me a rather large bouquet of freshly cut roses. I was shocked, overwhelmed by such attention from outsiders for me, and no less surprised that I myself completely forgot about this event.For some reason it completely slipped out of my head. Immediately they lit twenty-six tiny candles set on the cake. When the essence of what was happening finally came to me, I was so touched that I did not immediately find even suitable words of gratitude. I was forced to blow out the candles, and then we all sat down at the table, drank a glass of delicious liquor to my health and had a festive breakfast. My first question to them was: how did they know about my birthday? “It is customary for us to casually ask about it and write it down in the calendar, so as not to forget it,” answered Frau Erika and asked Catherine to bring this calendar.It was a special calendar for recording memorable dates, and it was designed in such a way that the dates of expected events appeared in front of you on a weekly basis. There I saw my name under the corresponding date. Having looked through the calendar, I was convinced that they had almost no “empty” weeks.
From home, I rushed straight to Nikolai to tell him the news of my birthday and to attract his imagination to joint actions. On a day off, it was difficult to get the necessary assortment for the festive table, because the Germans rest on this day, and do not work.But I have already noted that there were no fortresses for Nikolai whose doors he could not open. We got some good snacks and drinks and returned to my house with a decent supply. Frau Erika served all this in the most magnificent way on the table, and we have already spent the second phase of the celebrations at a slightly higher degree. True, Herr Otto and Frau Erika could not keep up the pace and quickly dropped out of the race. Nikolai and I rested, lay down on the sofa for several hours, and in the evening went to the Yapan restaurant, where we continued this unplanned event.Overdoses rarely happened to me, probably not only because I am a bit of a drinker, but also because I never had the opportunity to spend money on drinks – there was not enough money for food and clothes. So the described case refers to almost the first time in my life when I lost control of myself. I remember how Nikolai and I went down the mountain and parted at its foot – each went his own way, to opposite ends, but how I got home – God forbid, I don’t remember.
The next day I got up late and could not recover for a long time.Frau Erica helped me to overcome this disgusting state as best she could. When she found that I was already in a sane condition, she handed me a neatly packed package and said that Baroness Renata von Perfal had come yesterday evening and handed this package for me.
– What else did she say? I asked.
– Nothing. I realized that she wanted to wish you a happy birthday, and invited her to sit with us, wait for you, not thinking that you will be late so late, but she referred to being busy and quickly left, – answered Frau Erica.
“I really liked Freulein Renata,” she continued, “I saw her several times when she was still a schoolgirl, and now she’s a real bride. Someone will be very lucky with his wife, – she finished her story.
– Yes, it really is, – I confirmed her opinion, and I myself began to think that I ought to see Renata and thank him for the gift, but in such a state I would be ashamed to appear in front of her. After receiving treatment from Frau Erica’s pills and drinking several cups of strong tea, by the afternoon I somehow came to my senses and headed to Sparkasse, to the location of our calculation and theoretical office.To my surprise, Nikolai worked without any signs of yesterday’s “bust”, purring some songs under his breath.
“When we parted on the central square, you showed no signs of incapacity,” he reasoned. – Maybe you still looked somewhere, or maybe some German beauty dragged you away, and that’s why you completely lost your memory? – he continued to tease me.
– When did you return home? – I asked him to dismiss such a ridiculous assumption.
– Somewhere between twelve and one in the morning.
– Frau Erika told me that I returned at midnight. This means that I could not turn anywhere, – I summed up this discussion.
And yet the last word remained with Nikolai:
– I don’t know, I don’t know, what I don’t know – I don’t know.
I did not feel in myself the ability to mark the beginning of the twenty-seventh anniversary of my birth with a feat of labor, and therefore went to Renata. To avoid an unpleasant meeting with the colonel or his wife, he did not enter the house, but walked around it, and from the back side, where the windows of Renata and Frau Elsa’s rooms looked out to the small porch, he knocked.Frau Elsa looked out the window and indicated by signs that she would come out to me. It took about ten minutes when she finally appeared. Seeing her, I immediately realized that she was dressing up – how can you approach a birthday boy in a simple home dress! In her outstretched hand she was holding a large, very beautiful yellow rose. I understood the first words of congratulations well, but from the rest of her speech, apparently very beautiful, I understood hardly a tenth. Nevertheless, having accepted the rose, I thanked her warmly for the gift. But Renata was not at home, she left for the village on her commercial business.Will be back in the evening or tomorrow. Further, Frau said that it is very difficult for them to live with the colonel’s family, they are rude and arrogant people. When I said that I would come another time, she rather firmly objected, saying that I would put Renata in a very difficult position.
“If you can, don’t come,” she said, “just don’t be offended either at me or at Freulein Renata. It will be better, it should be.” I promised, and then we said goodbye.
After this conversation, I was lost in conjectures for a long time, worried about them, made various assumptions, but did not dare to break my promise.If I confess frankly, then resentment crept into my soul.

Mansurov Georgy – WorldVita
News from parents from 07/01/2020:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
Studying is given to George quite easily, and his son graduated from the second grade with two fours. The third quarter was held remotely, and, fortunately, our school organized everything at a high level.
Alas, despite the fact that we like our class and teachers and we see a huge benefit from communicating with classmates, we decided to switch to family education for a couple of years.The reason is that we do not have time to do rehabilitation at all, and the muscles quickly lose their tone, so now we will return and improve physical fitness. Georgy surprised and pleased us: after such a long break, he easily joined his usual activities, and we are already increasing the load.
My son’s health is now stable, thank God, and nothing bothered him this year: his vision remained at the same level, there was never pyelonephritis (this is very pleasing), the feet remain in good shape after the operation.
The situation with the coronavirus in our region is still serious. We do not take risks, we observe the regime of self-isolation and walk only in our yard.
We thank our benefactors for their support and wish you a warm and joyful summer, despite the difficult times for all!
Yours faithfully, the Mansurov family
News from mom from 02.11.2019:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
We would like to share some news. Georgy is doing well, he is already in the second grade, and he is especially good at humanitarian subjects.
In the summer, as usual, we were in the Children’s City Clinical Hospital No. 9 in Moscow. Unfortunately, we were unable to complete the treatment and undergo all the examinations, as Georgy fell ill with bronchitis. Thank God, there is no deterioration in the work of the pelvic organs. Our doctors are so happy that they allowed us not to be hospitalized anymore.
We want to thank you again for everything that you have done for our son! Even if he still cannot walk without aids, the normal functioning of his internal organs allows him to study in a regular school and fully participate in the life of the class.
Yours faithfully, Georgy’s mother
News from parents from 03/16/2019:
Hello, dear benefactors!
Georgy finishes the third quarter, and at school he is doing well. We have a kind and attentive teacher for whom this class is also the first. Zhorik loves her very much. And we are so glad that our son is constantly among his peers and can find friends for himself! Communication with other children has a positive effect on him.
Since Georgy has never been in a large team so often before, he is very often sick.However, these are just mild colds. Finally, the recurrence of pyelonephritis, which followed us after the operations, stopped.
Frequent anesthesia worsened his eyesight, and since November Georgy has been wearing glasses. Fortunately, it doesn’t upset him at all. We continue to study at home and gradually increase the load. Of course, school takes a lot of time, and we will be able to train in full force only in the summer and then, we hope, we will please you with new successes.
Many thanks for your support and for continuing to worry about our son!
Best regards, Mansurov family
News from parents 08.09.2018:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
We congratulate all students on the start of the new academic year and wish them easy learning and excellent grades!
George had a good rest over the summer and gained strength before school. I can’t even believe that he is now a first grader!
My son thinks that the holidays were great, because there were very few hospitals in them, and we were finally able to stay with our grandparents for a long time, play enough with our cousin and even sunbathe at the sea.Also this summer the dream of our boy came true: he was able to walk and jump through the puddles, all smeared and wet, but it was very joyful that the pranks of ordinary children became available to him.
As far as health is concerned, in June we had a routine planned hospitalization at the Moscow hospital. Speransky. Our doctors liked everything so much that they are ready not to observe George every year.
At home we worked intensively and achieved quite a lot: Zhorik learned to walk in a walker without supporting panties, jump and walk a distance of 400 meters.We think that very soon we will replace the walkers with support canes!
Thank you so much for not forgetting us and asking about our news. Thanks to your help and prayers, this news is always good! I wish you health and all the best!
With gratitude, the Mansurov family
News from parents from 04/14/2018:
Hello, dear benefactors!
We would like to tell you a little about Zhorik. Unfortunately, numerous operations and anesthesia affected the health of our boy.Throughout the winter and the beginning of spring, he was often ill for a long time. For this reason, we could not fully engage in, now we very much hope that in the summer we will make up for lost time.
Despite everything, George has some small new achievements: he can stand for several seconds, holding only one hand. We continue to go to the preparatory group, and Zhorik really likes it there, especially since he began to receive the first “grades” – stickers. Also, the sonny is waiting for the onset of a new stage in his life – entering the first grade, and is happy to choose a satchel, pencil case and other school supplies.
Thank you so much for your support and for not forgetting about us!
With best wishes, the Mansurov family
News from mom from 03.12.2017:
Hello, dear benefactors!
Our boy is already seven years old, but, unfortunately, due to four heavy operations and numerous hospitalizations, we decided to postpone his admission to school for a year. But Zhorik is happy to go to the preparatory class, and he is doing well.
In August, we rehabilitated again in a wonderful sanatorium in Teplice, where Georgy began to walk in a walker! This means a lot to us, because before the operations, my son could not even stand in them. And a few days ago we returned from St. Petersburg – Zhorik had Blount’s plates removed. This is not the most difficult operation, but the baby does not tolerate anesthesia very well, so we are glad that this test is over and that there should be no more surgical interventions in our life.
Now the doctors have removed all restrictions on the load on the hip joints, and Georgiy will have to do a lot of work to finally take his first independent steps.Thanks to our constant assistants, we have acquired everything we need for high-quality rehabilitation at home. We hope that this will help us achieve the desired goal.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for our family, for the opportunity to write good news!
Best regards, mother of George.
News from parents from 01.07.2017:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
We would like to tell you a little about Zhorik. On April 6, St. Petersburg doctors performed an operation on the second hip joint.Although our boy has already become very weak from anesthesia, resuscitation and surgical interventions, thanks to the skill of doctors and the prayers of people who are worried about us, everything went well again! When the control radiographs showed that the callus was forming normally, the head of the department let us go home. Zhorik spent almost two months (counting from the operation on the first joint) in a cast, and in May we finally got rid of this “armor”. As the doctors warned, there was a big rollback in all our achievements, due to prolonged immobilization, the muscles of the back and legs atrophied.To restore muscle strength and strengthen bones (children with our diagnosis develop osteoporosis, and fractures often occur after osteotomies), we underwent rehabilitation treatment at the Kamenny sanatorium in Teplice. In the Czech Republic, we really liked it, the thermal waters and skillful exercise therapy instructors work wonders – Zhorik, who arrived lying down and with pain in his whole body, learned anew to sit, roll over and move his legs. During the classes, I wrote down all the exercises and listened to the recommendations of the rehabilitation therapists in order to continue practicing at home and prepare for active rehabilitation in August, when the restrictions on the vertical load on the hip joints will be lifted.And in June we already managed to attend the annual planned hospitalization at the Children’s City Clinical Hospital No. 9 in Moscow, where they checked the functioning of the kidneys and pelvic organs, the results of the examinations made us and our doctors very happy. Thank you so much for your support! We very often have to be far from home, your kind words and prayers help us not to lose heart and go forward. We hope to continue to deliver only good news!
News from mom from 03/23/2017:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
We would like to share news about Zhorik with you.After the operation, the piles became supporting ones, and the son was finally able to stand while with support for his palms, but this is also a great achievement for us! And also a real miracle happened – a slight sensitivity appeared in the feet (the doctors did not even promise us this).
On March 12, we again entered the Children’s Surgical Clinic of St. Petersburg Research Institute of Physics, Zhorik managed to undergo a neurophysiological examination, be stimulated (a very good procedure), and also worked on the platform, where Zhorik stood for eight minutes, holding onto the handrails on his own.And on March 16, we again had an operation – a pelvic osteotomy to correct the dislocation of the hip joint on the left leg. Our doctors decided not to take risks and not operate on both legs at once, because this intervention is very traumatic for the child. Thank God and thanks to the surgeons, this complex operation was successful, we managed to do everything that the surgeons had planned, and Zhorik did not lose a lot of blood. On the morning of March 17, our boy was transferred from the intensive care unit to the ward, and, in general, he feels very well and vigorously.Now the swelling of the leg is still there, and sometimes the temperature rises, but every day Zhorik is getting better.
Georgy is very clever and very rarely complains that he cannot move his legs, although he really wants to. Now my son has a plaster cast just below the chest and up to the foot on one leg, up to the knee on the other. In a few weeks, doctors will also operate on the second hip joint. Of course, we will have to spend a lot of time in a cast, and it will not be possible to give support to our feet for 4 months, but all this should lead to the most desired result!
Thank you so much for worrying and praying for Zhorik! Your help and support is invaluable to us!
News from parents from 30.01.2017:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
We would like to share with you the news about our son. After the operation, Dr. Rokhkind Zhorik got much stronger, he got a lot of strength in his legs. We were constantly engaged, but the deformity of the feet did not allow our boy to stand normally. As you know, lately we have been waiting for a call for hospitalization at the Children’s Surgical Clinic of St. On January 18, Zhorik underwent surgery on both feet.Thanks to you, the help of the Lord and the efforts of the doctors (two teams worked at once) everything went even better than it was originally supposed – it was not required to put the needles, which made it possible to use not an ordinary, but a lightweight cast! The son cried a lot and was capricious in intensive care, while he was recovering from anesthesia, but he immediately fell asleep in the ward. The postoperative period is going well, we were even allowed to sit right away. Thank you so much for your help! Zhorik sends greetings to everyone!
News from parents 04.01.2017:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
We sincerely wish you a Happy New Year! Last year was not the easiest one for our family, but thanks to you our big dream has come true. May your cherished wishes come true! Let troubles bypass your homes, and only love, joy and mutual understanding reign in them! Health, happiness, prosperity, good mood and faith in a miracle to you! Happy Holidays!
With respect, love and gratitude, the Mansurov family.
News from mom on 02.11.2016:
Hello, our dear benefactors!
Zhorik has already recovered from the operation and is feeling great! Our boy has increased sensitivity in his legs and now he is surprised at new sensations – that the sheepskin is a little prickly, although it is soft, that it can be cold to sit on the floor, and it is better to play on the rug, and does not understand why his mother is so happy with such simple words ! Also, Zhorik’s support improved, before the legs bent at the knees when I asked my son to rest them in my palms, but now they have become much stronger, and the baby can easily lean on straight legs.And we also have stacks of shoes, and even socks have become small, this is very good news, since before the operation the leg grew very slowly, and the size corresponded to the age of three! We quite easily got a referral to a St. Petersburg clinic in our polyclinic, but so far there has not been a call from the research institute itself, so while we are waiting for an operation to correct the deformity of the feet and the subsequent opportunity to get back on our feet.
Many thanks to everyone for the fact that we can write you good news, for the fact that now we are sure that Zhorik’s forecasts are favorable!
Respectfully yours, the Mansurov family.
News from mom on 08/20/2016:
Hello, dear benefactors!
Zhorik is recovering well, the seam is completely dry, the muscles of the back and legs have noticeably strengthened! Of course, he already wants to crawl, but we strictly follow the recommendations of doctors and have only recently begun to sit, while we are very pleased that our son is now sitting upright, there is no longer a strong deflection in the lower back. Dr. Rohkind and the orthopedist Kopelevich advised to operate on the feet as soon as possible in order to bring them into the correct position and start putting the child on his feet, so we are already contacting the doctors of St. Petersburg and agreeing on the operation in mid or late September.
And we will not get tired of thanking you again and again for the chance for a healthy future presented to our boy! Thanks!
News from mom on 08.07.2016:
I want to tell you the story of our wonderful family! When our Zhorik was born, the doctors told about the most terrible problems that can await us. Of course, I was very worried and cried, but my husband and our parents were convinced that we would cope with this misfortune, that we could heal, educate and love this child, since God gave him to us.Even my little daughter tried to cheer me up all the time, seeing my tears. I believe that it was through the prayers of our relatives that we managed to avoid severe complications after the first operation, because we were warned about their high frequency. And later we learned that our baby needed an operation again, and it was very expensive. Once again, the family’s support was enormous! There was not a single relative who tried to dissuade us from treatment abroad or condemned. All of them – both the closest and the farthest – were ready to help at any moment.I was always sure that I could count on them, and it gave me strength to endure all the trials. Now we are far from home, but I know that in many parts of the world our relatives prayed for Zhorik, and I know that they all now share the joy of our boy’s new successes, so all the hardships were twice as easy, and happiness is twice more. It is also very important that with a calm heart I can leave my daughter with my relatives for the duration of my son’s long-term treatment. And Zhorik knows how much his sister, dad, grandparents love and await him, how his 94-year-old great-grandfather prays for him every day, how many loving uncles, aunts and other relatives he has! Someone’s illness may divide a child, but this trial only brought us together, I am very grateful to God for such a wonderful family!
News from mom 05.07.2016:
Hello, dear benefactors!
The operation was successful! The doctors did a huge and very difficult job to free the roots of the spinal cord, which turned out to be more than Professor Rohkind had expected. This is very good, since each spine is responsible for something! Zhorik did not need implants and glue, his own tissues were enough for the plastic. We also received answers from nerves. Now we have to work hard with orthopedists, and our beloved boy will be able to walk!
Thank you so much for the fact that we can write these words, for the fact that we have fallen into these reliable hands! I will never get tired of thanking you for everything you have done for us! God bless you!
Many thanks to the doctors for the miracle they call their work.May God grant them health for many years, so that they continue to save people and invent new methods of treatment. Thank God for everything!

Dear and esteemed benefactors!
The news that the gathering was closed made us cry, but we cried with joy and happiness! We are waiting for the operation in Israel for Zhorik as a real miracle! And YOU helped us to make this miracle real! Without your help, prayers and kind thoughts, we would not have coped.
There are no such words that we could express our gratitude to you – it is limitless and endless! Many thanks to EACH OF YOU for your kindness, indifference and responsiveness! Thank you for giving our son the opportunity to become healthy, go to a regular school and make many friends! Let troubles bypass your houses! Health, happiness, peace and goodness to all of you! God bless you!

Letter from parents
Hello, dear benefactors!
First of all, we want to thank you, sincerely and from the bottom of our hearts, for everything you do for our children! So we turn to you for help in the hope of your kindness.
Something happened in our family that everyone is afraid of – our son, our sun, our bright and kind boy is very seriously ill.
Read in full
Zhorik was born on the 25th.06.2010 Despite the fact that the pregnancy was very difficult, our boy was a long-awaited and very desirable child. Due to the strong and prolonged toxicosis, I was scared that the child would not be enough, but all the tests and ultrasound scans said that everything was in order, and I calmed down. Therefore, the words that sounded right after the birth of my son were like a bolt from the blue: “The child is not entirely healthy.”
The doctors diagnosed him with a developmental anomaly of the central nervous system (spina bifida) and said that my boy was not viable without surgery.We did not have information about the disease and did not have time to obtain it – the hernia could burst and become infected, and the infection would have gone higher – into the brain. Zhorik was immediately transferred to the infectious diseases department of newborns and premature babies of the Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital in the city of Stavropol, where on the 13th day after birth he was operated on.
After the operation, we started fighting for the legs of our son. We found the best orthopedists, first in the Stavropol Territory, then in Moscow, wore Frejk’s and Vilensky’s splints, Otto Bock’s orthoses abducting the hip joint, gradually plastering the feet, wore splints, splints and apparatuses …
However, at the age of five, our son still cannot walk on her own.All neurosurgeons who saw the MRI scans of Zhorik believe that our boy can be helped, since during the operation only the nerve roots responsible for the work of the feet were damaged, higher – the movements and sensitivity in the legs are preserved. But, alas, in Russia, doctors predict only worsening after the next operation.
Fortunately, one of the best neurosurgeons in Israel, Professor Shimon Rohkind, agreed to help George. Children operated on by this miracle doctor have no complications! In his opinion, now our boy needs an urgent operation to remove the fixation of the spinal cord.In the worst case, serious problems will begin. Pathologically fixed with a rigid filament, the spinal cord will not be able to follow the growing spine, which will lead to gait disturbance and the development of lower flaccid paraparesis, muscle atrophy, shortening and deformities of the lower extremities, the development of scoliosis, pelvic dysfunction and other complications.
Operation in the Assuta clinic will completely free the roots of the spinal cord from scar tissue and avoid its re-formation.Doctors also plan to reconstruct the spinal canal, which will restore lost functions. This surgical intervention will forever solve our neurological problems, and the hard work of our boy will finally lead him to his first independent steps!
Now Zhorik needs constant care, so I cannot go to work, only dad makes money with us. We live in the small town of Mikhailovsk in the Stavropol Territory, the salary and pension are only enough for life.Therefore, the amount set by the clinic – 36,700 USD, is completely unaffordable for us, and our boy needs an operation very urgently!
The fact is that the spinal cord is responsible not only for the movements of the legs, arms and the whole body, but also for the work of internal organs. Zhorik already has kidney problems, while we manage to contain them, but if we cannot operate on our son in the very near future, then these problems will worsen! Therefore, we are forced to pray for help, without which we cannot cope!
Despite his illness, Zhorik grows up as a very active and cheerful child, loves to sing, draw, sculpt, and, like many boys of his age, he is a fan of superheroes, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Star Wars”.Through constant rehabilitation, he learned to sit, get on all fours, crawl, get up on high knees, climb on a chair or bed on his own, and walk in apparatus with full leg support with support by his hands. My son is surrounded by great love and care, so he does not suffer much from the fact that he cannot walk on his own, but when he crawls up to catch up with friends and says with a smile: “But I can’t run, I just crawl,” my heart breaks with pain.
Please help us get into this operation so that we stop fearing for the health of our boy every day, see his first steps, and he himself went on through life always with a smile!
Best regards, Mansurov family.
