On the 7th of May residents of Salekhard participated in the All-Russian historical action “The Dictation of the Victory”. The action was conducted in the main museum of Yamal. In spite of the fact that the organizers gave 45 minutes for fulfillment of the test, less time was enough for some participants.
According to schoolchildren, basic knowledge in history was enough for them to fulfill the tasks. As a pupil of the tenth form Yana Terre says to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press”, she expected that questions would be more difficult. As she notes, she is interested in history and especially the period of the Great Patriotic War, but questions on culture got her thinking.
“There were many tasks on culture about statues, posters. I think that it is necessary to update my knowledge. In general, I consider that the school program is enough to understand and answer all the questions. I would not say that I did not prepare at all, there was some preparation. The Unified State Examination is ahead”, the schoolgirl said.
Also the governor of Yamal Dmitry Artyukhov notes that it is easy to cope with the test for those people, who are interested in history. He also coped with the tasks quickly and came out for an interview with journalists.
“Once I was interested in studying history; therefore, I consider that the test was not difficult. There were some doubts – when you start confusing the sequence of events. There were questions connected with the sequence of military operations, for example, an event was in the middle of the war, but which of them was earlier in 1943 or 1944, it is possible to be mistaken. I think that the organizers did not set the task to bewilder everyone. We know all the answers anyway. There were many questions about cultural heritage — films about the war, literature art-works. Therefore, it is necessary not only to know dates and events by heart but in general to understand the atmosphere and the layer of events left by the Great Patriotic War in our history. I think that this is a good beginning, and I hope that participation in “The Dictation of the Victory” will become our annual tradition”, said the governor.
As we should remind, Yamal participated in the All-Russian historical action “The Dictation of the Victory”. It took place on 15 venues in all towns and districts of the region. The tasks of the dictation were elaborated by historians. It consisted of 20 questions dedicated to dates, events, military geography, historical persons of the Great Patriotic War. Also it included tasks on posters, literature and monuments of the war years.
The All-Russian historical action “The Dictation of the Victory” was organized within the project “Historical Memory” of the party “Yedinaya Rossiya”. 85 regions of the country and more than 20 foreign countries are participating in it. The age of the participants is not limited.
