Documentary photo exhibition of the Vladimir Dahl Russian State Literary Museum titled “Writers Company. Soviet writers about the Great Patriotic War” has been inaugurated at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) in New Delhi.
The exhibition included 35 photos that tell viewers about the fate of Soviet writers who heroically defended their homeland with a pen and sometimes with a machine gun in their hands, repulsed Goebbels’s propaganda, left their homes to go to evacuation, died in battles near Moscow, Stalingrad or Konigsberg, froze in the blockaded Leningrad and reached Berlin to see the triumph of the Soviet troops.
The founders and members of the literary society Parichay Sahitya Parishad, Indian writers, literary critics, journalists, students and teachers of Delhi universities and Russian compatriots came to get acquainted with the photo exhibition at the RCSC. Also around 30 students from the Doon Valley Public School saw the exhibition during their visit to the RCSC.
This unique photo exhibition allows anyone to take a look at the woeful and at the same time heroic page of Russian history during the Great Patriotic War through the prism of the fate of Soviet writers.
