27 January 2020

An exhibition dedicated to the 76th anniversary of the complete lifting of the fascist blockade of Leningrad by the Soviet troops has been opened in Pechory. 

January 27 is the day of military glory of Russia and the day when the Soviet troops completely lifted the fascist blockade of Leningrad. A unique exhibition of books published during the years of the fascist blockade of Leningrad has been opened in the Museum of History of Pechory. 

It is unbelievable but during the blockade years over 23 million copies of 1500 books were published in the besieged city.

What did the books published in besieged Leningrad tell people about? They told people about the heroism of the defenders of the city, about preparing every house and school to the defense, about the military traditions of Russian people. They taught how to give first aid to the wounded, described most difficult surgical operations in the field, told people about medicaments and vitaminous drinks that can be prepared from herbs, leaves, fir needles and tops of vegetables. Songbooks and humorous books were published as well.

The exhibition “The books published in blockaded Leningrad” will enable you to see books about the fighting of warriors and the courage and firmness of civilians. Some original historic documents from the funds of the museum are exhibited for the first time.

The exhibition is open daily from 10.00 a.m. to 18.00 p.m.
