MOSCOW DAY CELEBRATED IN Т-34 TANK HISTORY MUSEUM
“MOSCOW WINS” WAR HISTORY FESTIVAL
“Moscow Wins” War History Festival with its program full of different events was dedicated by the Museum to 870th anniversary of the Russian capital.
New exhibitions were offered to the visitors on Moscow Day:
– “Russia’s First Tanks”, an exhibition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of N.N. Lebedenko’s heavy wheeled tank that was made in Moscow and tested in the environs of the town of Dmitrov;
– “Victory Train – Echo of Events”, an art project of Studio of Military Artists named after M.B. Grekov: portrait gallery by Ekaterina Solovieva and Yegor Smirnov;
– “Glittering Steel”, an exhibition of tank troops uniforms from the collection of Sergei Chibineyev.
On Saturday, 9 September the celebrations in the Museum started from thematic tours around the Museum’s exposition and the Tank Park.
At the same time interactive sites of 18 military history clubs and historical reconstruction associations from Moscow, Moscow Region, Vladimir, Nizhny Novgorod and other regions of Russia started operating on the Museum’s grounds.
Exciting programs were demonstrated by the children and youth associations – ‘WARRIOR” Defense and Sports Club and “Banner” Military History Club.
Historical reconstruction of the fighting that had taken place 75 years ago on the defense lines of the Stalingrad Battle was the culminating point of the festival. Having left her child with the relatives, Marionella Korolyova from Moscow achieved her goal of being sent to the frontline as a nurse. In November 1942 she carried fifty wounded soldiers away from the battlefield, and when their commander was killed, she headed the attack and was the first to rush into the enemy’s trench. Koroleva killed fifty Nazi soldiers and officers by throwing grenades at them. Fatally wounded, she kept on fighting until the arrival of the reinforcement. M.V. Korolyova’s heroic deed was immortalized by writer Elena Ilyina in her novel “Fourth Elevation”. Maria Bozhenkina, physics teacher from Nizhny Novgorod’s Grammar School № 2, played the role of Korolyova in the military and historical reconstruction.
This reconstruction was organized by Т-34 Tank History Museum and “Kitezhgrad” Center of Live History (Vladimir) with assistance from military history clubs and associations of Moscow, Kolomna, Podolsk, Pushkino, Vladimir, Kaluga, Sergiev Posad, Nizhny Novgorod, Serpukhov, Ivanteyevka and other cities and towns.
After the end of the reconstruction the visitors were photographed with its participants and also were consulted on various aspects of voluntary participation in the activities of military history clubs and search teams.
The detailed photo report on the festival is published on the Photo Gallery page.
