On the eve of Victory Day in Nalchik, there was a reconstruction of one day of the Great Patriotic War
From 6 to 7 in May 2018, the cultural and patriotic production of “On the approaches to the Great Victory” was held in the Recreation Park of Nalchik. The initiator and organizer of the event was Amir Kulov, artistic director of the AmikS song theater, together with his team.
Student organizations of the Kabardino-Balkarian State University, such as the Kallisto Dance Theater, the KBSU Choir, as well as famous performers Irina Rakitina, Lyubov Sherkhova, Khusein Shalov and others also took part in the production.
This event is held for the fifth time already and for the third year in the largest park in the North Caucasus, Atazhukinsky Garden. According to Amir Kulov, the very idea of reconstruction came to him because of the large number of military-patriotic compositions in the repertoire of the group “Amiks”.
“We once decided to install musical equipment at one of the sites and perform songs on military topics all day long. And gradually this musical improvisation reached the level of cultural and patriotic staging, as the number of participants in our concert increased each time. I am very pleased that even long before it starts, the participants notify me, asking to start preparations. They treat him with all their hearts and prepare well, ”said Amir Kulov.
“The event was organized with the aim of honoring the memory of those killed in the Great Patriotic War and the patriotic education of the youth,” Amir says. - During the day we tried to create a military situation and bring it closer to the conditions of those years. Of course, we didn’t manage to recreate everything, but this is quite enough for the guys, our younger generation to feel what our grandfathers and great-grandfathers went through, what they donated, so that we live in such beautiful things today.
- Before the start of the event, we talked to the children - members of the Amiks team about the war, began to ask them about what they knew about this time. And the children's answers shocked me. They at their young age already know a lot about that time. Therefore, I think that the goal has already been achieved to some extent, ”continued Amir. - Every year we update our repertoire. This year we can boast, as we have included an absolutely new composition “About women of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic during the war”. We decided to give women separate attention and make just such a separate composition. ”
Amir also noted that thanks to social networks, it became possible to notify a large number of people about holding this event, and many expressed a desire to take part in it.
In the evening of the first day of the production, the construction was organized, then songs with a guitar and a accordion around the fire, watching a movie and hanging out. And in the morning - at 4 hours - the alarm rose, as it was then, 22 June 1941, when the Nazis treacherously attacked our country ... “These are indescribable emotions. It is cold and horror, shock and alarm, a siren and ... the beginning, the beginning of the war, ”Amir shared his impressions. Then a minute of silence, and a touching action — the guys carved out two-meter letters “Victory” from the tree, decorated them with lighted candles, and solemnly launched them into the lake. The most honored guests were our war veterans, who arrived at the event at noon.
At lunchtime, a field kitchen was organized, in which everyone, without exception, ate only front-line food.
“People often ask me if I commit people to participate here?” To which I always reply that this event is a voluntary commemorative event. And everyone takes part in it of their own free will. I myself know the pain of losing a loved one in a war. Four people from my relatives went to war and did not return from there alive. And therefore I want, from generation to generation, the inhabitants of our republic tell a true story about that wartime, ”said Amir Kulov.
The performance was also assisted by the military personnel of the city of Nalchik. They staged demonstrations, held an exhibition of military equipment.
In addition, during the day, a military sports game was held, which brought together the delegations from the Stavropol Territory, KCR, Chechnya and Ingushetia. And the delegations from the Crimea and Dagestan held the "Meeting of Young Patriots" and organized a joint concert with the theater "Amiks".
